Team Panis Racing – ELMS
After starting out in F4, the Dutchman quickly turned to Endurance racing, gradually rising through the ranks of the category. He enjoyed early success, winning the 2018 LMP3 class title in the ELMS and twice finishing as runner-up (2019 & 2020) at the next level up (LMP2). In 2021, he also finished third in the Pro/Am Endurance Trophy of the WEC, and has therefore quickly established himself as a major asset for Panis Racing. Together, they’ve concluded the 2022 ELMS season in second position in the LMP2 category.
