Western Cape Cadet kart racer, six year old Luan Mostert is by definition a third Generation driver - although the second generation as as they say in Afrikaans, aangelap through his dad after grandpa - well-known Cape racer Franco Donadio spawned a generation of girls. 

Either way, the Italian racing blood runs thick through Luan's veins - nono Franco is a three-time South African Midget Champion , who recently made a comeback in Killarney's V8 Masters as well as in his immaculate Ford Escort in the Cape Classics. Now Franco has taken his grandson under his wing and he's teaching him all he needs to know about the art of racing.

Luan started racing Cadets in 2016 - the plan was to start earlier in the year, but a broken arm intervened to delay his debut until September, but Luan was quickly up to speed under the watchful eye of his karting guru, Cape Town's triple SA and eight time WP karting champion, Luke Herring. The youngest driver in Luke's LHR team, Luan has developed strongly under his mentor.

Luan won the Kito Kup - a trophy handed to the most impressive Cadet driver every race by Cape kart legend Kito Perdigao - an award that day really inspired Luan to train even harder in his aim  to score podium place in the 2017 under-8 Cape Cadet championship.

Naturally, Luan loves the racing - his first mission is of course to chase that ghost in the tarmac, but he also thrives on getting to the track to mix with and learn from his many racing buddies. Keep an eye out for Luan Mostert going forward - his passion is sure to see him to a top race career.
