From an early age, Dino Chiesa came into contact with the world of Karting, thanks to his father, a pioneer in this sector. After a brief experience behind the wheel, Dino develops a great passion for the technical side of the competitions, affirming himself very well as a mechanic

The first great experience came in 1984 with Kalì Kart, thus starting a long experience in CRG. A few years later he became the head of the DAM Race, then a young CRG racing department. The newborn brand collects a series of international successes, to the point of becoming a reference point for the whole karting world. These unique results are now remembered by the whole sector.

 A new professional growth comes true with the appointment of Team Manager of the MBM, the Mercedes-Benz McLaren. The company has set itself the goal of growing the most promising pilots since the first competitive years. Among the responsibilities of Dino Chiesa appear the names of Hamilton and Rosberg, to whom he himself will mentor.

In 2004 a new challenge begins, at the head of Zanardì. His management will bring the brand to conquer several international titles, in all three world championships.
