Career

GETTING TO KNOW AUGUSTO BETTER

The power to win and the passion for speed have run in Augusto´s veins since he was 6 years old, when he started riding mini-motorcycles in Curitiba. The talent shined through immediately showing all the signs of a great champion following a victorious path from go karting through to international car racing. Augusto’s career with the many titles and achievements are only the beginning, there are many more victories waiting for this young driver. Augusto has very clear objectives in his life and all the determination and talent to achieve them.


Augusto accelerated for the first time at the age of 6 on a soil track with a mini-moto 50cc and became known as the Magic Motorcycle Boy, getting applause and space in the media, as well as prestige.


In 1992 Augusto Farfus Jr. started to race and dominate the go kart championships. His debut was in April, in the Paranaense South Region Championship, in the Junior Cadet Category. Simultaneously, in June of the same year, he started to race in the Paulista Championship of Formula Go Kart. In July he also participated in Porto Alegre in the Junior Lights category of the Brazil Cup and by the end of his 1st year in karting he had won the Paranaense Championship. In1993, at the age of 10, Augusto started to race in kart competitions outside Paraná, winning titles in many categories such as the tri-champion Paulista and tri-champion of Formula Parrila in São Paulo. After a sequence of victories in 1999 Augusto received an invitation from the Italian go kart team CRG, and became their official racer. Augusto immediately adapted to the European tracks, taking several important international titles.


At only 16 years old, after exploring all possibilities in the go kart world, Augusto decided to look for new paths and challenges. In 2000, he jumped into single seaters, racing in the European and Italian Championship of Formula Renault for the Italian team Cram Competition. The following year Augusto raced for RC Motorsport, winning the title of European Champion in Formula Renault. As a result, he received an invitation to participate in the European Formula 3000 Championship as first driver for Draco Team. He won the title in 2003 with two rounds remaining.


And this is the reason why, from his first go kart race back in 1992 until today, with his brilliant results and hard marketing efforts to build his name and image, Augusto has always guaranteed excellent results to his sponsors.
