Rocco Landers, at age 14, is one of America’s fastest road racing kids. In 2010, at 5 years old, Rocco started racing in a local California Minimoto Racing Series. His first race weekend was at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. His lack of knowledge of the racing world yet his desire to be #1 was evident when he pulled in after his first practice and asked his Dad... "Dad, Did I win!?"
In fact that weekend he did end up winning the first race he entered, beating kids with plenty of racing experience. He ended up winning a championship in his first year of racing.
In 2011 and 2012 he continued winning races and championships. After winning over 200 races and 15 championships in the U.S.A., it was time for a new challenge.
In 2013 Rocco made the trek to Italy to race against some of the fastest kids on the planet. With a best finish of 8th in the CIV SAV Category, it was evident there was still a lot to learn. In 2016 Rocco went back to race in Italy to compete in the Mini GP 50 class with Pasini Racing aboard an RMU 50cc two-stroke machine. His best race finish was a 4th place, and he placed 8th in the overall championship.
In 2017 Rocco changed countries, moved to Spain for most of the summer and competed in the Spanish RFME 85cc Championship aboard a Beon where he finished 5th overall in the championship. In 2018, Rocco once again returned to Spain to contest the Spanish 85cc Championship and placed a respectable 4th place in the championship with 2 podiums!
In 2019, Rocco competed on U.S. soil, contesting the Moto America Liqui Moly Junior Cup aboard a Kawasaki Ninja400R.com machine. Rocco won a stunning 14 out of 17 races and clinched the championship 3 races early in the New Jersey round.
In 2020, he heads back to Europe to compete in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup series!
Any amount helps and we appreciate your support!
