BENJAMIN

Name: Benjamin Sylvestersson

Date of birth: 16.5.2007

Nationality: Finnish

Home town: Parainen

Club: South west karting Fin Ry

Team: Kilpi Racing Team

Started karting: 2014

Benjamin has a new generation of motorsport talent. Benjamin, a 14-year-old from Pargas, started go-karting when he was seven years old. Ever since the small classes, Benjamin has shown its momentum and years of determined work have begun to bear fruit.

In the 2022 season, Benjamin will step up from karting to the standard car series. Benjamin drives both the SM series and the BaTCC series in the Baltics in the V1600 class. The first race of the season in Riga went great, the catch was the time trial Pole Place and the victory of the race!

In the next few years, Benjamin aims to run in the international classes of track series and mainly in international series in Central Europe. The long-term goal is to make motorsport a profession, especially in the commercial car series in Europe.

 

2021

The 2021 season continued as the covid affected schedules and constraints. Benjamin drove the OKJ category in Finland for the Finnish Championship series and abroad in the Exprit factory team for the WSK races, the Champions of the Future series and the European Championship series. The pace was at a good level throughout the season, but the lack of race experience, especially in the tough international races, caused a lot of disruptions. There were successes and prize places in the Finnish Championship series, but the final points were overshadowed by technical problems. After an unfortunate season, Benjamin made the decision that karting is now finished and it’s time to move on with his career.

2020

The 2020 season was tinted with covid. The competition calendars for all series went new and the competitions could only be started in July. Benjamin's pace in the OKJ category gradually began to be found after a long break from races. Evidence of this is, for example, the time trial of the Oulu Finnish Championships. Kristian Gleisner worked as a mechanic for Benjamin. Kristian has a long karting career behind her, so the know-how is the best possible and the cooperation has already proven to be good and functional.

2019

For the 2019 season, Benjamin continued to drive the X30 Cadet category and finished nicely second in the series points. The season included race wins, pole positions and the fastest lap times. In addition, Benjamin got used to his future class, the OKJ category under the CIK / FIA, in the form of one Finnish Championship.  

2016-2018

Benjamin drove his first karting series in 2016, when he placed third in the Karting Association series, Cadet category. The following year, Benjamin moved up a notch to a higher category, the Rotax Micro Max. The year 2018 was marked by technical problems with the Rotax Mini Max and X30 Cadet. The only bright spot in the broken season was the victory in the home race in Paimio in the X30 Cadet category.
