Fernando Alonso Biography

Born on July 29, 1981, in Oviedo, Spain, Fernando Alonso was born to compete. His father, Jos� Luis Alonso, had always longed to be a go-kart driver and tried to pass this passion on to his two children. First, Fernando Alonso built a kart for his 8-year-old daughter Lorena, but she never got into the sport. As a result, the kart was passed on to 3-year-old Fernando, who immediately took to racing. During the first two years of driving the kart, Fernando Alonso and his family thought of it as just a game, something the young boy would do to pass time and amuse himself. At 6 years old, however, Jos� began to notice his son's aptitude for racing, and so he fine-tuned the kart to get it ready for competitions. By 1988, Fernando Alonso had begun dominating the junior kart leagues, going from circuit to circuit on the weekends and after school. By the time he was 12, Fernando's budding career as a kart driver had become so serious that his family could no longer afford to send him to races far away from their home, or even afford the materials required by Fernando's more powerful cars. Thus, the Alonsos sought support and, after Fernando Alonso dominated a race in the Catalan Championship, they found a team willing to take on the young driver. Read Full Bio >>
