Starting next week, I’ll be driving in the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux. After a successful season in, among others, LMP3 in the European and Asian Le Mans Series, this is a great new step in my racing career. I’m expecting to make a new step in my learning curve as a driver.
It certainly won’t be the first time I’ll be taking place behind the steering wheel of the Porsche. I’ve driven this wonderful car in the past multiple times. It’s a great and tricky car to drive, very soft in the suspension. It’ll be an evolution in my driving style because the Porsche demands a certain way of driving. That’s great because I’m here to become a more complete driver.
The first weekend I’ll take part in, will be during the Pinksterraces at Zandvoort. Zandvoort is a real old school track and of course my home race. Zandvoort’s new status of a Formula 1 Grand Prix track is also pretty cool. I’m very much looking forward to it.
I’ll be using the coming races to learn and to achieve my personal goals. De Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux feels like the perfect environment to develop myself and that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
Apart from Zandvoort, I’ll be driving all the races on the Porsche Carrera Cup Benelux calendar:
- 7-9 June: Zandvoort
- 19-21 July: Assen
- 13-15 September: Nürburgring
- 28-29 September: Barcelona
