ETIEN KANTAR BOŽIČ - TENTEN
I was born on December 1, 2007 in Izola. I live in Lucija and am currently attending
Lucija Primary School. I have an older sister Eneja who also gave me my nickname "TenTen".
Grateful fot the support of my family, which is getting stronger day by day,
I first got on a motorcycle when I was 4 years old.
Gasoline vapors addicted me then and addiction is still present today.
When I was 6 I started competing in the mini-moto races.
Year 2013: As the youngest competitor I competed at the minimoto races for the first time
and in my inaugural season I reached the 3rd place overall !
Year 2014: I was facing abroad for the first time and in addition to the
Slovenian championship, I was also participating in the UISP Veneto
regional championship in Italy.
Year 2015: I won the title of Slovenian national runner-up - 2nd place overall.
In addition to the Italian UISP Triveneto Championship and the Trofeo ItaIia Championship,
for the first time at only seven years old, I was a participant in the
European Championships in the Netherlands and in Italy, where I ranked 13th place.
Year 2016: I became a national champion for the first time.
I dedicated myself even more to racing in Italy and so I was competing
in the Italian national championship for the first time for the Top - Racing team.
I was ranked 24th among 43 racers. I was 3rd overall in the Italian regional competition
and 14th overall in the Marco Simoncelli Championship (also in Italy).
Year 2017: I was competing in the Italian national championship,
where I participated in half of the announced races, which was enough for an overall 18th place!
I also won 1st place in the Italian Interregionale Nordest Championship and 4th place
in the Marco Simoncelli Championship in Italy.
The Slovenian national championship in this category was not scored.
Year 2018: I became the national champion again.
I reached the overall 13th place in the Italian national championship !
In the Marco Simoncelli Championship I was at the 4th place overall.
Year 2019: Transition to a higher category. In the Slovenian national championship
I finished in an excellent 3rd place in the minimoto Open category
and in the Italian national championship I managed to bring the 7th place
in a tough competition. I was participating in the European Championship again,
where I reachd the top 9th place!
Year 2020: I became the national runner-up in the Minimoto Open category,
and I finished 5th overall in the Italian national CIV Junior Minimoto.
I also took part in the race for the European Championships in Adria,
Italy in September, where I finished 6th overall.
I am currently 5th overall in the Marco Simoncelli Championship.
In the 2021 season, I will be moving from mini-moto racing
to speed motorcycle racing, where I will be racing a Yamaha R3.
In my inaugural season, I will compete in the
Alpe Adria IMC competitions in the SSP 300 category.
