Welcome to my twenty seventh weekly blog!!
On 26-08-2021, was The Sim Grid Sprint Cup Round 4 at the Nürburgring. I didn’t had much time to practice, in the afternoon I was at the archery range together with Sarah and Sophie!
We had a great afternoon, after a long time I shot some arrows and that felt great! See my first slow motion video. When we got at Sarah’s place, I used her rig for the Sprint Cup.
I drive together with Alethea Boucq and we drove already before at the Nürburgring for the 12 Hours Against Dementia! I asked if Alethea can drive, the qualifying and first stint.
I was already very tired and I’m not very good with other equipment then I have at home, because of my handicap. She drove a good last lap in qualifying and a very good first stint, we were P14 when she came in for the mandatory pit stop and driver swap. Unfortunately, when I drove out of the pitlane, I had no force feedback.
I could go in and give the car back to Alethea, but I didn’t want to that because we are losing a lot of time and places. I drove 45 minutes, without force feedback and trying to get the best out of it.
Unfortunately, we lost a lot of places and ended up P 24. It was a bit sad, a good result was possible for us.
Theamusante Wavy World Tour
Round 5 of the Theamusante Wavy World Tour, is on Friday evening 03-09-2021, 90 minutes at Monza. We are currently at place 4 in the championship and with a good result a lot is possible to get maybe in the top 3!!
I drive together with Sophie Aeronwen, I have no time to practice, but luckily I drove already a lot at Monza with Bernadette!
RCI Endurance World Challenge
Sophie Aeronwen and I are going to drive a new Endurance championship. Round 1 from the RCI Endurance World Challenge, start with 6 hour race at Imola. We are driving with Bernadette (the Bentley). With the races we’ve got, Bernadette is a good choice.

02-10-2021: 12 Hours at Donington
06-11-2021: 6 Hours at Misano

I’m really looking forward to this championship and especially the 6 hours of Misano!! It’s going to be a lot of fun and hopefully we can go for a win!
End of holiday
I had an amazing holiday, I spent a lot of time with Sophie, Sarah and Alethea. It was a lot of fun, it was nice to meet the ladies in real life. Before I talked with the ladies every day, but didn’t saw them in real life. I had a very good time in the UK and I’m going to miss it!
