About​ me

Ever since I was a kid I loved everything with wheels and a steering wheel. When I was three I would go to my dad's car with my grandmother and stand on the driver's seat for hours pretending I was driving. I wanted to do nothing other than drive cars and as soon as I could see over the dashboard, I did. When I was 5 years old, I was on a TV show called  Praatjesmakers (start at 33 minutes) where I had to parallel park an Excalibur.

Racing Licence

I was 13 when I contacted DF trackdays to participate in their 2-day racing course. I drove in a BMW M535i e12 which had technical issues, luckily we had a spare BMW. After passing my exam, examiners were amazed that I was only 13 and so made me the winner of the course. 

That weekend led to me obtaining my national racing license at youngest ever recorded age of 13.
