Remo Luciani

40 Year Kart Veteran – Still Winning


REMO LUCIANI is an active competitor at 62 and won his Karting class last year.

He holds seven national Karting titles, 70 state titles and has won the NZ karting Championship.

His target has always been not to progress from the class he’s competing in until he’s won it.

Remo began Kart racing at 21, the age by which many leading contenders have moved up to open wheeler categories – even Formula One.

His first race was in 1981 and he adopted the number 17 in honour of Dick Johnson who’d won his first Australian Touring Car Championship that year with the plate.

Luciani has become renowned as a chassis builder, engine tuner and as a mentor for youngsters who use Karting as their entry into motor sport.
