Kaius has only started karting in 2020. Despite his short career, he has shown his ability and potential to become one of the top drivers in the sport. In 2021 Kaius stepped up to the first international category under the FIA, OK Junior. Despite the rookie season, Kaius showed good performance in the Finnish Championship series and although he missed the last 2 races, Kaius' ranking in the Finnish Championship series was 15/31.
The transfer of the 2021 World Championships from Brazil to Campillos, Spain, offered Kaius the opportunity to measure his pace among the world’s top drivers. Kaius signed a two-race contract with the Spanish DPK Racing Team. The agreement covered both the World Championship pre race (October 21-24, 2021) and the actual World Championship race (October 28-31, 2021). Even though Kaius didn't get to the finals, the experience was really good and valuable to the future.
"It was awesome to be able to measure my own pace among the world's top drivers. My main goal was to collect experience for the 2022 season. I that I got a lot."
