ABOUT ME

Age

24 (1997)

Nationality

Belgian (BE)

Kart owner

Rotax 125cc Senior Max,
Gillard TG16 chassis

First kart experience

2010 @ Inkart, Puurs (BE)

Started karting regular since

Started karting more often since early 2017 when I became a marshal at a karting track in Dublin

Scariest moment on track

When a guy flipped his kart and landed on his head right in front of me.
Luckily, the guy was “okay”.

working point as a driver

* Adapting to new tracks faster so I don’t need “100” laps just to get a decent & consistent lap time.
* Adapting to bad karts better. I struggle way too much with getting the most out of a bad kart.
* My confidence. As I never consider myself good enough and am always afraid to be the one that slows the team down.
* I need to stop looking behind me when racing.

What does OKT-Racing look like in 3 years

A great group of people that have fun together while helping each other improve and eventually become one of the best and biggest teams in (rental) karting.
