I live in the Netherlands

I started racing in 2002, just 2 meetings in Belgium: Chimay and Jehonville. It was not a big success, lots of bugs, just finished in 1 of the 4 races all the rest I retired with engine trouble (seizures).

But in 2003 I entered in the same meetings and I finished in 3 out of the 4 races. A big step forward. and in the last 2 races (this was the meeting in Jehonville Belgium) I finished 2nd in the first race and 1st in the second race.

Not bad for someone who had never seen a racetrack before that.
