In 2001 si 2002 am fost campion in Belgia la clasa N1 cu un VW Polo, in timp ce in 2011 am fost campion al clase N3 cu un Peugeot 206, ca dupa aceea sa pilotez mai multe Mitsubishi-uri si sa iau titlul in clasamentul Production in 2013. (English: My first ever rally was My home rallyYpres, now also part of The TER, back in 1992 with a VW Golf, in 2001 and 2002 I was Belgian rally champion class n1 with a VW Polo, in 2011 champion class N3 with a Peugeot 206, and from then I drove several mitsubishi’s and took the production title in 2013.)

Ne-am bucurat de ralurile de anul trecut si sper sa facem la fel si in 2018.
