Rocco Landers, age 13, is one of America’s fastest road racing kids. In 2010, at 5 years old, Rocco started racing in a local California Minimoto Racing Series. His first race weekend was at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. His lack of knowledge of the racing world yet his desire to be #1 was evident when he pulled in after his first practice and asked his Dad... "Dad, Did I win!?"
In fact that weekend he did end up winning the first race he entered, beating kids with plenty of racing experience. He ended up winning a championship in his first year of racing. In 2011 and 2012 he continued winning races and championships. After winning roughly 200 races and 22 championships in the U.S.A., it was time for a new challenge. In 2013 Rocco made the trek to Italy to race against some of the fastest kids on the planet. With a best finish of 8th in the CIV SAV Category it was evident there was still a lot to learn. In 2016 Rocco went back to race in Italy to compete in the Mini GP 50 class with Pasini Racing aboard an RMU 50cc two stroke machine. His best race finish was a 4th place, and he placed 8th in the overall championship.
In 2017 Rocco changed countries, moved to Spain for most of the summer and competed in the Spanish RFME 85cc Championship aboard a Beon where he finished 5th overall in the championship. In 2018, Rocco will again contest the Spanish 85cc Championship with the intention to win this time! We hope you follow him in his journey to the top of his sport.
