Ever since I was a kid I loved everything with wheels and a steering wheel. When I was 3, I would go to my dad's car and stand on the driver's seat for hours pretending to drive. After I graduated primary school, my dream was to travel the world racing cars.

 

Unlike many of my rivals, I have no prior go-kart career.

In 2017, I obtained my national racing license and participated in my first official race at Zandvoort with Cor Euser’s BMW 318ti. This was at the youngest ever recorded age of 13.

 

In 2019 I became overall champion in the Ford Fiesta Sprint Cup in Benelux. This year, next to my schooling, I hope to pursue this success in the European Lamborghini Super Trofeo.

CAREER

“My goal is to travel the world racing cars.

My ultimate dream is to become a manufacturer driver.”
