After karting, Horto went to the United States in 2009 to compete in the Formula BMW Americas championship where he finished seventh, scoring a best finish of second at Road America. In 2010 he drove in the Star Mazda series for Team Apex.[1] He finished 7th in points with two second-place finishes as well as two thirds. In 2011 he returned to the series, this time driving for Juncos Racing.[2] He improved to fourth in the championship, winning the race at Mosport Park.
