Gašper Čarman was raised with the smell of petrol in the air: his father was a great fan of motorsports. In 1989 he rode at Grobnik as a sidecar passenger in a veterans' commemorative race, thus making his first race appearance at the age of eleven. Motorsport has been his passion ever since.
His first amateur podium position was earned in 1995, when he took 3rd place at Zatrnik with his Moto Guzzi V350 II. His desire for a larger, more powerful bike later led him to buy a very rare Moto Guzzi a650 GT, which covered a huge amount of ground.
He then began to be attracted by Japanese makers. A friend often lent him his Honda CBR 900 RR, and he borrowed a racing Honda RS 125 GP for several races. He began working at AS Domžale, becoming head of servicing for Honda bikes at the end of 1999. Fortunately the company showed great understanding for his racing career.
For a while he raced as a sidecar passenger with Milan Špendal, from whom he borrowed his racing Honda. After several victories in mountain races, on a fateful Sunday in January 2000 he literally took flight at the end of the flat section at Grobnik. This experience brought an end to Gašper's sidecar passenger days.
He then bought a used Honda CBR 900, and made constant improvements to his circuit times. Following exhaustive winter training at Grobnik, he embarked on his first racing season. After just a few professional races, in April 2001 he won his first national championship points with a 2nd place at the Hungaroring.
At the next race at Grobnik, he fell badly at Zagreb Corner on the final lap while fighting for the lead, but managed to recover sufficiently during the two months before the next race at Grobnik, where he took his coveted 1st place. He continued the series in the next race at Misano, where he took the title of national champion, before ending the season with 2nd place in another race at Grobnik.
Spring 2002 brought him a new Honda CBR 900 RR. Unfortunately he then suffered a bad accident, which removed him from competitive racing for some time.
By 2004 he already had a used Honda 1000 RR in his garage, which he made constant racing modifications to, while participating in recreational and hobby competitive series (Jura Racing, Tehno Team, Bobo Racing). In 2008 he moved over to the new Honda, whose modifications had brought it to a level that was the envy of many a professional racing team. In May 2010 the Honda CBR 1000 RR was measured at 204 HP at the rear wheel.
