Company Albino Parolin biography
Albino Parolin's karting history includes events linked to some of the great names in the world racing.
Before becoming one of the most important kart manufacturers, Albino Parolin collected plenty of brilliant results in many national and international races; an extraordinary talent, later displayed in chassis construction.
His driving life started in the early 80's and was undoubtedly encouraged by his father Enzo's amazing passion for motorsports. In 1982, at only 14 years of age, with an uproarious beginning he won 30 races out of 30, he earned the Triveneto Champion Title, the Italian Championship and had the second place at the Anni Verdi Trophy. The next year he made his début in the World Championship: at the pre-final he conquered the third position before leaving the track for an engine problem.
The triumphant march between 1984 and 1987 marked another series of successes while competing against Micheal Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen,
the future Formula 1 World Champions. At the same time, he repaired, set up and tuned turning his passion for driving into an established work.
In 1990 he purchased an old bending machine and started chassis production. His very first frame, commissioned by a well-known company situated in Piacenza,
won the World Cup in Suzuka, Japan.
The collaboration with some great pilots improved his technical knowledge, the development of a personal brand and allowed an important evolution into the karting world scene. Among them, Albino Parolin likes the professionality of one of the best Italian drivers: Giancarlo Fisichella.
With the important support of his wife Ivana, in 1994 he founded Parolin Racing kart, one of the biggest kart manufacturing companies in the world.
