When Fernando was a little boy, his karting-fan father, built a kart for his daughter Lorena, who was 6 at the time.
The kart was designed as an homage to Senna's MP4 who was Alonso's father's idol.
Once the kart was built, it was Alonso who was really interested in it!!
This kart became one of his favorite "toys" and from that moment on, karting became a very important part of Fernando's life... and also his professional future!
You can see the original kart built by José Luis Alonso and much more at Museo Fernando Alonso!
We open everyday from 10 to 19
