Mateo Rivals – Karting driver


" Make your life a dream and a dream a reality"

What about me ? 
Vice Champion of France and official SODIKART driver, Matéo already has several seasons of experience in karting competition. He began karting at the age of 7, with Yohan and Claude Soguel, and started competing the same year. Right from the start, he joined the WinKart team, led by Yohan Soguel, himself a former French champion and international driver. Mateo has enjoyed remarkable success in his young career. In 2023, he became vice champion of France in the MINI 60 category, a competition bringing together the best drivers in France. His racing performances have also been impressive on the international scene, with numerous podiums and high placings in prestigious races, demonstrating his exceptional talent and unwavering commitment to motorsport. 

Who am I ?

Born on  3rd July 2001, my passion for motor sport was passed on to me by my family. Today, more than a passion, it has become a goal in my life.
From the age of 5, I was attracted by speed and competition. At the age of 6, I drove a kart for the first time on a regional circuit, and that’s when his passion turned into a real career. Since then, I’ve been working hard to become one of the best kart drivers in France. With talent and determination, I’m ready to do anything to succeed.
