My mission: Experiencing emotions together

Racing is my passion. It all started at the age of 14, when I first sat in a racing kart. After that my path was predestined. My initial enthusiasm for speed very soon turned into a desire to make racing my profession. Thanks to an individual sponsorship by my former team boss Theo Hemkemeyer, I was able to establish myself within three years in the top group of national kart championships. Almost inevitably, at the age of 17, I entered the ADAC Formula Masters / ADAC Formula 4, which is considered the “junior school for racers.” These two intense years in the Formula cockpit encouraged me to continue on my path. Today I can look back on two more years in GT Sports in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany with Team Project-1 under the direction of Hans Bernd Kamps, who I am very much indebted to. He not only understood how to make me a better racer but also enabled me to emotionally touch the spectators and business partners of the team both on and off the race track, creating an intense “we” feeling. This experience of being together as a team, touching people and experiencing emotions together drives me to always give the best and be an honest partner. So even though I drive alone on the track, I know a big WE behind me. I would like to give back my support to all of you through high performance and emotional experiences.

I am happy to be available to my partners for joint activities both on race weekends and between races, such as for driver training or business-related events.

FTRC

You don’t have time to be slow! 

The FTRC Fast Track Racing Center of my partner tolimit has the aim to help racers to achieve their goals faster. By following a holistic approach, which contains the components

  • physical fitness
  • mental strength
  • tacid knowledge
  • practical experience

the FTRC is able to use network of experts to make use of the best specialists for each component and to create individual trainings and workshops.

After completing the program 2 years ago, today I am responsible for the organization of the FTRC with my know-how of the professional racer. Conception, quoting and organization are in my hands.

The regular participation in the workshops and trainings I owe my outstanding physical and mental fitness and the special know-how in the training of junior, gentlemen and hobby racing drivers. If you ask for my very special USP – here it is.

 

Driver Coach

Are you a hobby racer and want to get faster? Would you like to drive a race car yourself? Or move your own car at the limit? Would you like to gain more security, e.g. when driving in the rain?

In addition to being active on the race track, I can help you expand your skills by being your driver coach during a day or weekend full of fun and excitement. It can be on a race track, in a simulator, on a drift course, etc.

Just let me know your preferences via the contact form, by phone or during your visit to the race track and we will find a suitable program for you.

tolimit Business Driving

My partner tolimit offers Business Driving. They create emotional, effective experiences for our clients that bind customers and motivate employees – right on the race track as well as next to it.

385 horsepower, hoarse tubes on the gas pedal, grippy asphalt, tight corners – what is otherwise reserved for racers is now also available for our business clients.

tolimit organizes a complete business program including an active drive on the desired race track – from the invitation to the actual event to a follow-up afterward. Very important: the program is perfectly tailored to the respective company.

The focus is always on the sports experience: for customers, employees or whoever management wants to tailor this event to. For this purpose, a race track is rented for a day and tolimit brings their own Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport. The participants take turns on the track, guided by professional instructors.

In addition to the action on the race track, further events take place – from off-road driving experiences to seminars and workshops. The combination of theory and practice strengthens the brand identification of the participants and shapes a unit, a team. “There are many incentive events today – what companies have to ask is,  how can we achieve a long-term benefit from this?” Through intensive support and management consultancy, the focus is not just on the event itself but on its overall impact.

tolimit works out the program for your ultimate experience to strengthen your brand identification. Please contact me if you are interested.
