ABOUT ME

BMW FACTORY DRIVER 2013 - 2017
ASTON MARTIN FACTORY DRIVER 2018 - 2022

In 2005 I started my journey in the Mini Cooper Challenge Benelux.
I finished 2nd of the Championship which gave me the opportunity to compete in the Mini Cooper Challenge World Cup Final in Misano. Winning it made me becoming the 1st and only MINI World Champion ;-).
After a few years of racing in many different championships, I have been very lucky to meet Marc VDS. I have been able to race for 5 years in his team and had to win many races which gave me a lot of credit in the racing world.
In 2013 started my 1st chapter with BMW as a factory driver. I drove the ALMS (USA) with the brand new BMW Z4 GTLM with some great successes.
In 2014, my dream came true. I was finally able to race in the DTM for BMW. I will never forget my 1st victory in Moscow in my 5th race ever, it was an amazing feeling to be able to be the 1st Belgian driver to win a DTM race.
Winning the Total 24H of Spa in 2016 is my most beautiful victory!
In 2018, I decided to give a new chapter to my racing career and went to Aston Martin Racing. Racing in the WEC for 3 years in the GTE Pro has been an amazing experience. Winning the 24h of Le Mans GTE Pro in 2020 will always stay as one of my most important victories ever.
After 5 years with Aston Martin Racing and many different successes, it was again time for me to write a new chapter in my career.

BMW FACTORY DRIVER 2023/2024

In 2023, I started my second chapter with BMW and it was a really exciting moment and a really great feeling to be back with so many people I know from my first chapter and it was really nice to finish with them and Valentino in third place in the Dubai 24 Hours, and to be on the podium twice in the Fanatec GT World Challenge, taking P2 at Brands Hatch and P1 in the Misano round… as well as winning with them and Dries Vanthoor the first NLS of the 2023 season. Now, in 2024, I look forward to facing new challenges together with the big BMW family and writing the next lines of my journey with them!
