Leo ‘The Lion‘ Simone is the youngest driver on the New Speed Motorsports team. At 4 years old, he’s driving the Kid Karts this year, which are scaled down chassis with restricted Honda engines. The Kid Karts put on a demonstration run at last year’s Nationals, but in 2021 KartStars Canada has added them to the race weekend.
After watching his big brother Rocco complete for the past few years, Leo too raced this weekend…and proudly showed Daniel Demaras his trophy.
Not to be outdone, 19-month-old Lando, Leonard’s son, jumped into Daniel’s No. 412 kart while waiting for the Briggs race to begin. D’Arrigo can clearly be seen contemplating replacing Demaras with the younger driver.
