Aleksandar Bogunović


A boy born 6.4.2008 in Ljubljana, now living in Postojna .
With his 7 months Aleks left his country and went to Mexico with his family. Father’s passion for motorsports forced him to buy his son an electric toy car before he even starts to walk. At the beginning the car served him as a support to stand up and at the end he starts walking on the side of his car! aleks_mustang

With his two years when Aleks reached the gas pedal he was driving his mustang on his own and drifted him through the curves. Soon the speed was to low and his father needed to change the charger and the batteries and Aleks reached the speed of 18km/h.

With his four years, for the first time Aleks try the real go-kart on the Autodromo de Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and sit into the kid kart chassis with two stroke Comer 50ccm engine and was completely excited.

Like this he started his racing career and the same year becomes the sub champion of Rotax Maxchallenge – kid kart category of northeast Mexico!

At the end of the same year his father takes him to the international cup of GPI Guadalajara 2014. This was the first that kind of a race for Aleks there were pilots from 14 countries from all over the world. Nevertheless of high pressure Aleks shown his extremely capacity of concentration and dominate through all practices, won the pole position and wins the final race.


After the won race his father consult with other owners of different teams about Aleks move to the next category – Micro max and the suggestions were all positive because they saw a lot of potential and capacity in Aleks.

Because of big financial investment his father buys him a used kart and the old Rotax 125ccm engine (2002 year).


So the decision was made that Aleks will race the year 2015 in Micro max category. The first race unfortunately Aleks didn’t finish because of engine problem. Second one he finished second chasseing the first one!

After the second race Aleks gets a new chassis and his father agree with the Falcone GP racing team that Aleks join them and start to race in USA. In April 2015l when Aleks just tur his 7 years he had his first race in Dallas for TX challenge, and make fantastic, incredible results although he was two years younger than the rest of the pilots!!!

Phenomenon results Aleks was basically as fast as the best pilots he had almost the same lap times as Ugo Ugochukwu (that time international champion) and Diego LaRoque, who is actual world champion of 2016 in the Micro Max category!!!



Here was seen that Aleks definitely have a huge talent and that he is a big potential. This year Aleks participate also at Denton, Texas; Las Vegas, Nevada; San Junction, Colorado; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where the pole was taken from him just for a few cents of the second where he was faster than Italian Enzo Scionti and with a lot of bad luck he finished fourth at the finals!!!
