(North Bergen—January 4, 2016) Jersey City resident Russell Soto, a sophomore at High Tech, has started his outdoor karting career in the Rotax Junior MAX category, soon to compete at the Club and Regional levels, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech.
Only driving skills take precedent in the Rotax MAX Challenge™ (RMC), a motor sport race formula for race kart drivers, approved by and in compliance with the CIK-FIA (Commission Internationale de Karting/Federation Internationale de l’Automobile). Drivers use checked and sealed Rotax MAX engines for equal performance.
Soto holds high ambitions to excel in the highly–competitive arenas of engineering and motorsports. Karting, an entry-level form of motorsport, has been the training ground for all kinds of professional racers, from Formula One to NASCAR. Involved in this sport since the age of nine, Soto has demonstrated head-turning talent with only a minimum of the financial resources of most of his competitors. Thus, Soto seeks sponsorship for his racing career through word of mouth and publicity outlets like the news media.
Always putting his education first, Soto expressed an affinity for engineering and design at High Tech, a school that has fueled his interest in the mechanics of motorsports. Russell has documented his experiences in racing as they happen, and to read more about his journey in the sport that he loves, be sure to visit Soto’s website at http://www.russellsotoracing.comor at Soto's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/russell.soto.
