Ugo is one of karting’s hottest prospects with the New York born racer claiming the FIA OKJ European Championship in 2020 while racing for Kart Republic. Ugo’s triumph in the FIA’s leading junior karting championship means he joins fellow ADD driver and McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris by having this title to his name.
2020 was a milestone year for Ugo as he also joined Sauber Formula 1’s junior karting programme. For 2021, he will make the step up to the senior OK class in search of more success as he remains with Kart Republic for a second year.
Since moving from America to compete in Europe, Ugo has demonstrated great maturity and talent as he looks to make his way up the motorsport ladder. ADD management is thrilled to be working with him and is looking forward to supporting him on his journey.
Ugo Ugochukwu: “I am delighted to be joining ADD Management. ADD has helped developed some talented drivers over the years so I am looking forward to further my career with them. It is a really exciting time for me and I am very grateful to be part of their talented roster.”
Mark Berryman, Director of ADD Management: “Ugo is one of karting’s most exciting prospects and to see what he has achieved at just 13 is simply remarkable. We’re thrilled to have him on board and we can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
