Life doesn’t always work out the way we planned. Mario Bonfante Jr. found that out the hard way after his racing career was cut short in a tragic accident, but he refused to let it derail his dream. Fueled by his passion for racing, a fiercely competitive nature, some pretty impressive engineering skills, and his love of Forza Motorsport, Mario has not only found a way back onto the race track, he’s proven to the world (and himself) that the resilient human spirit will always triumph over tragedy.
Forza Motorsport is inspired by drivers like Mario, a born competitor who at a young age has already proven himself impossible to beat.
