Tamás Gender Junior was literally born into racing thanks to his father who is the founder of the most successful Hungarian team operating single seater racing cars. Tamás has grown up on the racetracks and dedicated his life exclusively to this sport. He has been driving karts since his early childhood and currently, at the age of 12, he is factory driver of the legendary Parolin Racing Kart.
In 2020 he was racing for German VPD Racing as teammate to the sons of former F1 driver Alexander Wurz before he moved to the Italian Team Driver. Since 2022 he has raced for Parolin Racing Kart in WSK, Champions of the Future and CIK-FIA series.
Talents like Lewis Hamilton, Giancarlo Fisichella, Nico Rosberg or Scott Speed started their careers in the team of Parolin Racing Kart.
One of the greatest wishes of young go-kart racers is to sign with the Parolin team. In recent decades, the most talented drivers of Formula One have emerged from here. They can test their skills in the WSK Super Master Series, other international championships as well as the Italian Championship series, which have been the most prestigious professional karting championships for many decades! A straight path leads to the higher categories from there but only for the bests. Parolin Racing pays special attention to the specific training of the racers’ careers, as well as to the development of mental and physical fitness.
Since 2022, Tomi has continued his career as an OK Junior karting driver. The goal is, of course, F1, which is why he moved to Italy with his family, where he also continues his school studies, studying three foreign languages (English, Italian, Spanish).
It is important for him that Parolin prepares him in the best circumstances to successfully take on the categories in front of him.
The HUMDA Academy youth training initiative was launched with the support of total of 29 competitors from 8 categories, 9 of them are karting talents. In addition to the results already achieved on the racetracks, the specialists compiled the list of the HUMDA Academy by examining, among other things, the driving technique as well as the physical and mental fitness. As one of the youngest competitors in the go-kart category, Tomi was also selected for the program in 2022, so through the support he can focus on racing in higher-level championships under more professional conditions.
