Career

2020

Due to Covid-19, the prior half of the racing season was cut off. But Andre used this new surplus of time to better prepare himself for the upcoming races. This season contained his first ever national races. Despite the step up in competition and the inexperience in the new class, after driving through the field Andre earned a top ten finish, (6th), at WKA grand nationals. The following national event was the Rotax Stars and Stripes race at Lafayette Motorsports Park, it was his first time ever at that track.  Andre was on the road to a podium finish in an extremely competitive field, when a mechanical failure ended his weekend early. 

2019

The following year, Andre moved up into TAG senior. Despite the larger challenges that came with the senior division, his first race win came after a dominant performance in the rain, winning with a 10 second gap to second place. Later in the season he won his second race, qualifying on pole and leading every lap of the pre-final and final. Despite fighting against an underperforming engine for the season, Andre was the highest placed Rotax only kart in the championship, securing top five.

2018

Andre started racing in 2018, at the age of 16, driving TAG junior karts in the New Jersey state championship. During the first season he finished on the podium in every race with the exception of two. He succeeded in securing third place in the championship.
