My adventure in motorsports started with Dutch Scooter Drag Racing Championship back in 2007. The transition to cars was made in 2011 when I bought my first car: Subaru Impreza GTT GC8. The next day after the purchase I applied for Racing License course and a year later I was racing the 705hp Impreza in the Dutch Time Attack Championship. Funny but true, back at the time I was never attracted to the Ring, even though it was just 1,5 hour drive away from my home. My first Ring trip happened in 2014 when my team was participating in Gymkhana Grid Championship with Nissan Juke R that was taking place at the Nürburgring.
The day after the event we took the Juke over the Green Hell and I could not believe what I was experiencing, and 1000 hp Juke was not the main reason. In 2015 I moved to the Nürburgring area and ever since I have been doing between 1 and 30 laps on a day, whether as a driver or a co-driver. And even after thousands of laps, none of them is the same and every single one of them is just as exciting, whether it is in a half a century old Lada or in one of three street-legal Maserati’s MC12 Versione Corse.
Ever since I first heard about the Nurburgring I always wanted to make the trip over from the UK to visit and experience what it had to offer. When I finally got the chance a few years ago it certainly did not disappoint; in fact it captivated me to the extent where I instantly knew that this is where I would eventually settle. Since that point I set a target, to work and live at the Nurburgring, and what better place to do it than at Apex Nurburg!
My first track driving experience was when I was 4 years old; I wasn’t old enough to start racing until I was 8, but that didn’t stop me practicing! Between the age of 10 and 16 I competed at a professional level all over Europe karting with many top results.
Since then I’ve raced in many different types of cars but nothing has come close to what the Nordschleife has to offer. Every lap is different, there is so much to take in and absorb, and as a driver to exploit every last bit of performance available; I love the challenge it presents and the feeling it gives you when you’re at one with the machine you’re driving and the surface of the track. There really is no other place like it.
I’m really looking forward to passing that experience on to our customers; some of my greatest moments on circuit have been while sharing the experience with others. To be able to do this in a safe, and controlled environment while passing my knowledge of the ‘ring on to the customer is a privilege.
I‘m Alex, 23 years old and am living near the Nürburgring. I started racing go-karts at a young age and was eager to switch to cars when I was 18 years old. My favorite racetrack is obviously the Nürburgring Nordschleife where I‘ve done countless TF laps as well as test and taxilaps for several motorsport companies and race teams. As one of the youngest coaches/drivers at the Nürburgring I am eager to share my excitement and modern approach to driving with other enthusiasts.
A few proud moments in my driving career are as follows. I was placed as one of the 16 top talents of Germany at the Jörg van Ommen Racer Scouting in 2015. In 2017 I set the fastest BTG time ever (7:25) with a stock engine BMW E36 M3 and won the Coupé + M2 class at the Sport Auto Tuner Grand Prix in Hockenheim with the Versus Performance BMW M2. I am very eager to continue my racing career on and off the Nordschleife and am looking forward to sharing my experiences with you!
I am Laurin and I will be one of the guys helping you either get around the Ring safely on your first couple laps or improving at various levels of experience. I have been driving the Ring for the past 6 years constantly, I have completed around 3.500 laps in total and finally moved here in 2016, after living in Düsseldorf.
New job, new home, a huge step for me, but I would definitely say it was the right decision. During the off-season I like to do Kart and Simracing, watching On and Off-Boards of previous seasons, basically everything to kill time until I can finally hit the track again.
Take your first step into the Green Hell now, you won’t regret it!
I started racing back in 1998 in the “school of motorsport”: Karting.
In 2012 I fell in love with the Nordschleife, making my debut in the RCN. In 2017 I was able to secure 9 wins and 4 second places. Next to the VLN I drove the Porsche Cayman GT4CS MR to pole for the 24h and secured the “Porsche Cayman GT4 Trophy by Manthey-Racing”.
Since 2017 I have been racing and coaching not only in Europe but also in Asia and the USA. With my experience in racing and coaching worldwide, I will be available to you for lead-and-follow as well as data and video analysis.
