It’s april now, and I haven’t been racing nor practising much.1 KBO race in march, in which I finished 10th out of 20, which is still quite acceptable in a very competitive group of (local) drivers. Next race planned is the CCK qualifying race, the qualifyer for the big event in Italy, in september.I’ll compete in the masterclass, as I have been doing since 2017. I’ll take it race by race this year, no full calendar.We moved to another city and I started a study, so priorities first.The 2nd part of this racing year might be more interesting, but I’ll tell you about it laterRead More →

This year I’ll be competing in the Kart World Championship again in july ( so I need a good preparation. To get back in the race rhythm again, I competed in 2 KBO races (Oldenzaal), 2 DRS races (Lelystad) and the first race for the European Championship, in Spa. 3 podiums out of 5 events is the result, till now. The june month I’ll be working on my physical condition, mainly. July will be a full race month: – DRS Lelystad, july 5th.Read More →

After not competing nor doing practise sessions for 13 months,  I competed in the 9th race for the Dutch Championships rentalkarting at the Eefde track, and finished 2nd in the masterclass. I started terrible in the series finishing round 10th place a few times in the first 3 races, but in the 4th race I found the rhythm again and finished 6th. A strong final resulted in 2nd place. It was a tough event, but I’m happy with the result.Read More →

Yes, I won the first race for the 2021 Dutch Rental kart Championships in the Masterclass, out of 60 drivers.After finishing 2nd, 6th, 3rd and 3rd in the heats, and pole-position in race 2, I was allowed to start 4th in the A final (best 17 driver’s) but due to a bad kart with low topspeed, I finished 6th overall.I already had enough points in the heats, to be the winner of the event, so my 6th place was just a bonus.This is my best rental kart result in 5 years, and I’m leading the Dutch championship now, but I won’t compete in the restRead More →
