Welcome to my thirty first weekly blog!!

The Sim Grid Sprint Cup

Alethea Boucq and I drove the final race of the Sprint Cup Season 4. The final round was 90 minutes at Spa Francorchamps. We knew it’s going to be a tough one, we had a limit of time to practice and we thought we will see where we end up!

Alethea drove the qualifying to P25, we started a bit from the back, but that turned out to be a good thing. In the sprint cup, there is a lot of incidents happening in the first couple of laps.

Alethea drove an amazing stint and avoided also with a bit of luck all the incidents on track! My stint was about defending, I didn’t have the pace with the cars in front, also not from the three cars behind.

I was defending for 30 minutes, to hold P12. It worked, I lost it in the braking zones, but with a good exit out of every corner, I was hard to pass. I was glad to bring the car home at P12, it was our best result in the Sim Grid Sprint Cup so far!! 3 times we finished in the top 15, hopefully, we can do it better next season!


RCI Endurance World Challenge

On Saturday 02-10-2021, Sophie Aeronwen and I drive the RCI Endurance World Challenge. 12 hours from Donington. It’s going to be a challenge, not only because we are doing the 12 hour race together, but also we drive a split higher.

We won the first race at 6 hours at Imola, the top 3 is moved up. Unfortunately, we lost our points but luckily the win still counts! This is going to be my first race on Donington, it’s going to be tough, but I’m looking forward to race again with Sophie and I’m also looking forward to this challenge!

Theamusante Wavy World Tour

At Sunday 03-10-2021, it’s the final round of the Wavy World Tour. 4 hours at Spa Francorchamps. Sophie Aeronwen and I drive together with the Bentley. We are currently at P6 in the championship and P4 is possible with a good result. Fingers crossed and we will see where we end up!


Pro League Racing; Team Championship

It’s going to be a weekend full of racing, at Sunday 03-10-2021, Sophie and I drive the PLR Team Championship. 2 hours at Zandvoort with Bernadette (the Bentley).

Zandvoort is my home track, I know it very well and in the past, I drove on the track in real life. This weekend is going to be a challenge, with all the races, but I’m looking forward to it! After a little break from a week, I’m ready to give it all!!

The Sim Grid Endurance Cup
