Diogo Costa Pinto is a true legend of Sporting's karting team. Aged just 12, he won the Portuguese Cup. "I drove like an adult. I even drove in reverse to park! We knew right away that it was something special", said Costa Pinto, reflecting on his first experiences behind the wheel.
Diogo continues to bring silverware to Alvalade, winning the West Regional Karting Trophy in 2014 and claiming back to back Portuguese Cups. “I am feeling really confident. The secret is to be constantly focused and to train a lot", added Diogo, ho was invited to team up with RedLine Motorsports last year.
Costa Pinto is a big fan of William Carvalho and can be found in Estádio José Alvalade every matchday with his cousins whenever he isn't racing. What next for the Sporting racer, F1? "What matters most to me is that I have fun. That is why I take part in this sport", finished Diogo.
