Gevraagd als bestuurder van een hele gave 0 auto in een short rally in Belgie. Gladde condities zorgde voor hard werk achter het stuur! De achtienjarige Kjell die voor het eerst in z'n leven navigeerde leverde een top job! Keep on going! Ik mocht eindelijk achter het stuur kruipen van een MK2 Escort. My number one...
Met een 5e plek in het algemeen klassement en de klasse overwinning haalde ik alles uit deze trainingsauto ingezet door GP-ELite. Samen met Rober Romviel die zijn eerste rally navigeerde kunnen we terugkijken op een meer dan geslaagd event. Wat een fun!
Samen met gelegenheidsnavigator en tevens eigenaar van de auto hebben we kort maar krachtig genoten van deze historische rally! Door technische problemen konden we helaas maar die proeven rijden. Het was geweldig om deze ex fabrieks Golf II op snelheid en Duitse pacenotes te besturen.
Iets wat ik nog nooit gedaan heb, een rallyproef zonder navigator! Een andere disipline, een andere uitdaging! Ik wist de snelste tijd algemeen neer te zetten, van de in totaal 200 historische raceauto's.
Na vier maanden weer terug in de Skoda S2000, in een rally met goede herinneringen! Zo voelde het ook, lastig zonder enig ritme maar toch goed. Ondanks dat lieten we zien dat we toch bij de beste behoren door een aantal keer de snelste tijd op de klokken te zetten.
In the urly '80 Audi won several WRC championships, therefore Audi made the Sport Quattro. I am pleased to be part of the club that day, when club members took a ride with me on the passenger seat. (only original Sport Quattro owners are able to become a club member) Isn't this such a fantastic car?!!!
'VW classic parts' asked me to drive some of their most unique classic cars. As you can see I tried my best again to make 420.000 people smile! It was amazing...
Amough F1 driver Nico Rosberg and F1 test driver Giedo van de Garde I was also part of this years 'City Race' show. Thanks to Lamborgini owner Michel van Westing over 450.000 people could see me having fun in the 4x4 Lambo. It was a great succes!
Second overall in my second race just 1 second behind championship leader Ola Nilsson who is doing his third year in the series. There were more guest starters such as my teammate Sebastien Ogier, aswell as Carlos Sainz, Juha Kankkunen and Markku Alen.
First ever race competed in the Scirocco R cup, at Norisring. 4th overall after being fastest in free practice
A drive in one of the safetycars in a Dutch rally, the official BIO GAS Scirocco R. This car is driven by Carlos Sainz in WRC Germany as a '0 car' in 2010.
A great event with lots of fantastic spectators. My first rally together with Fred Miclotte. We were able to set some fastest times in the S2000 class but unfortunately forced to retire later. (due to technical problems)
My first official rally with VW Motorsport. WRC Monte Carlo it was. Not easy for the first time but a uge experience. We won the S2000 class aswell in this one. Again together with Lara Vanneste.
Aswell as my first rally with a 4wd car on gravel. WRC Rally Wales it was. A fantastic experience to work with a factory team such as VW Motorsport. We won the S2000 class together with Lara Vanneste in the codriverseat.
Sponsors of the ‘Paradigit ELE Rally’ were able to take place in the codriverseat. Good fun to let faces smile!
Due to financial reasons no J-WRC season but the French Gravel Championship in 2011. This time with Lara Vanneste on my side. We became 2wd champion and 4th overall by the end of the season. I turned 22 in 2011.
Me and My sponsor BIO MCN were invited by Ken Block to drive this gymkhana event. Amoung lots of American and Japanese drift teams with lots of power we managed to finish 3rd with the Nissan 350Z running on Bio Methanol
The Hellendoorn rally in Holland. We finished first in group N.
The event was held in the middle of Porec in Croatia. Four times WRC champion Juha Kankkunen finished 3rd, ex WRC driver Armin Schwarz finished 2nd and I won the event! I had a fantastic time with all the drivers. Will be continued…
Though on one of the stages I had the pleasure to drive with Alexander Pechtold on my side, without pacenotes of course. Mr. Pechtold is a chairman of one of our parliamentary parties.
Two IRC rallies were included in this championship in 2010. In both IRC rounds we managed to win the 2wd class. Later in the season we became champion in the European Trophy. Together with Erwin Mombaerts in the co-driver seat.
We won the 350Z cup, by winning this one we were the first one winning a class with alternative fuel on board! Bio-Methanol it was. Former 3FM Radio DJ ‘Paul Rabbering’ codrove me trough this one.
We ended up third due to electrical problems. Later in the season we won the J-WRC round in Portugal. I drove the whole season again with Erwin Mombearts on my side. I turned 21 in 2010.
My first and only S1600 drive so far.
Later in the year I promoted Hancook tyres by climbing up the leaderbord with the clio R3 in one of the rallies counting for the Dutch Rally Championship. Pierre Krieger codrove him trough this one. We reached the 7th place overall and first 2wd car.
Aswell with Erwin Mombearts on my side. We finished second in the Trophy by the end of the year.
Owned by Englishman ‘Guy Woodcock’, this rallysprint took place in Amsterdam (NL). We swapped seats in between the stages.
This Subaru Impreza P2000 WRC was owned my Dutch rally driver ‘Martin van Iersel at that time. Richard Burns drove this car in the late ‘90s in the WRC.
WRC Ireland was the first one that year. I won more than 50% of the stages. Unfortunately forced to stop on day one due to an electrical failure. (‘super rally’) We became second in J-WRC in the second rally in Portugal. WRC Poland was the third one which we’ve won! By winning that one I became the first Dutchman and youngest ever able to win a J-WRC round overall. Footage from WRC Ireland, Portugal, Poland and Spain. With Erwin Mombearts on my side that season. I turned 20 in 2009.
Together with my main sponsor ‘Rob Gommers’ at that time, aswell as the owner of the ex ‘works’ prodrive BMW M3.
Thanks to ATM Motorsport. At that time they were in charge of our Clio R3. Bjorn Degandt guided me trough this one. We became 4th overall in a strong field.
Images from WRC Jordan, Finland, Germany, Corsica and Spain. The codriverseat was shared by Erwin Mombaerts and Bjorn Degandt.
Just before the first J-WRC rally Jordan. We finished first 2wd car. Bjorn Degandt was the codriver. I turned 19 in 2008
(WRC Germany) A standard ‘group N’ car was the first 4wd car I’d ever driven. With Harmen Scholtabers in the codriverseat.
An ex Prodrive ‘works’ BMW M3 it was. My Dad in the codriverseat this time.
Supported by the KNAF, the Dutch autosport federation. I won the Mitsubishi Colt Cup in the Dutch Rally Championship with Harmen Scholtalbers in the codriverseat. I turned 18 in 2007.
A full Dutch rally season next to my dad. We became second in the Mitsubishi Colt Cup. I turned 17 in 2006.
