How did you came up with the idea of racing RC cars?
My dad began with RC racing just before me, when I saw the speed of these little cars for the first time I wanted a car just like that.
What do you love about this sport?
Everything!!!! Itâ€™s a fantastic sport. But if I had to chose I would say the speed and the camping. When you see these cars racing, the speed is just fantastic. And after the race there is also a lot of fun at the
camping but I hate the long journeyâ€™s.
How do you see yourself growing in this sport?
I hope that in the future I will be a Serpent sponsored driver. If this would happen in the future, it would be a dream that comes true.
What do you think of this track and the organization?
Very nice track!! I like this track very much, its fast and technical and there is a lot of grip. Also the organization is very good. The people here in Belgium are very nice to me.
Who is your hero?
Michael Salven, heâ€™s a nice guy and drives very good. He also knows everything about the car.
