After competing in karting from 1981, Basso has been rallying since 1994.[1] Basso has driven Fiats throughout his rallying career. He made his World Rally Championship debut on Rallye Sanremo in 1998, in a Fiat Seicento.[2] In 2001 and 2002 he competed on WRC rounds in the Junior World Rally Championship in a Fiat Punto S1600, finishing fifth in 2001 and fourth in 2002.[2] In 2006 Basso won the inaugural Intercontinental Rally Challenge and the European Rally Championship in a Fiat Grande Punto S2000 for Abarth.[1] In 2007 he won the Italian Rally Championship.[1] In 2009 he won again the European Rally Championship, driving an Abarth Grande Punto S2000.

Basso used to be co-driven by Flavio Guglielmini, who died in a crash on the European Championship round Rally Bulgaria in July 2009 as co-driver to Swiss driver Brian Lavio. Basso has also been co-driven by Luigi Pirollo and currently by Mitia Dotta.
