Bianca Bustamante is an up and coming motorsport star who has competed in both local and international karting competitions since the age of 5.
Racing is something she loves because apart from the feeling of victory, it also gave her a passion to share with her father. Her ambition is to one day show the world Asian drivers can compete on the global stage, and also disrupt motorsport by demonstrating women can win at the top levels of a male dominated sport.
Bianca Bustamante burst onto the karting scene at a young age and has since established herself as an up and coming driver to watch. Her competitive nature knows no bounds, having repeatedly outclassed older and more experienced drivers. In a male dominated sport, Bianca has fought relentlessly to develop her skill and not only did she win, she did it in dominant fashion.
Her father has worked tirelessly to support her efforts throughout her karting career. With her ability behind the wheel increasing steadily, over the past decade she has garnered numerous wins and pole positions across Asia, with victories spanning as far as the USA and Australia. She is a proven champion and her extensive list of achievements is a testament to her talent, humble attitude, and potential to become a true motorsport champion.
Having won the China Grand Prix Kart Scholarship 4 times and the famed Macao International Kart Grand Prix 3 times, Bianca has proven that she is consistent and reliable. A particular highlight was her entry into the 2015 SKUSA SuperNationals, one of the biggest kart races in the USA. She qualified an impressive 4th out of 91 participants in her first attempt, and gained recognition as a star of the future. She was selected as the only contestant from Asia for the 2021 FIA Girls on Track - Rising Stars scholarship.
