Dallas, Texas, United States, October 6, 2023 - Driven | Performance Management is proud to announce the addition of Latin American driver Marco Romero to their roster, taking his sports career representation to the next level.
Romero, who is 12 years old, was born in Venezuela. He made his competition debut in his home country at the age of 6, winning various championships in his debut season in KidKart and Rotax Micromax. He was also the vice-champion in the EasyKart 60cc category. In 2019, pursuing his racing career, he moved to the United States to immerse himself in ROK Cup, USPKS, and SKUSA competitions. He quickly established himself as a regular front-runner, achieving the title of 2023 SKUSA Vice-Champion in the IAME Mini Swift category with six victories.
DRIVEN, known for its professional approach and dedication to talent development and sports management, is confident that Marco Romero will become a prominent star in motorsport. They are committed to supporting him at every step of the way, just as they have done with Esteban Gutierrez and Roberto Gonzalez in categories such as Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3, Formula 4, FIA WEC, ELMS, IMSA, IndyCar, and more.
The addition of Marco Romero to DRIVEN reinforces its high-level position in sports talent scouting and demonstrates its ongoing commitment to promoting promising young drivers.
Marco Romero:"I'm feeling incredibly optimistic about my racing journey with Driven. This year, I'm pushing hard in karting, competing in both Skusa Mini Swift and Mini Rok categories. Looking ahead to next year, my aim, alongside Team Benik and the support of Driven, is to step up into the Skusa and ROK Junior categories and do testing in single-seaters as I come of age. The past year has been a rollercoaster of highs and lows, but every moment has been a valuable experience. My ultimate aspiration as a driver is to make it to Formula 1 – that's where my sights are set, and that's where I'm determined to reach. I can't express enough gratitude to my family and Team Benik for their unwavering support on this journey, and now, with the backing of Driven, I'm looking forward to an exciting and promising road ahead."
