Den Haag FM »Racemonster Wouter (10) wants to be the best kart in the Netherlands

What began as a hobby is now more and more serious for Water Bergenau (10). Last weekend, he was on the podium with two Cups in the GK4 Kart Series, the official Dutch-Belgian club championship in Venray. ‘I’m very happy. “It feels good,” says Wouter.

For the first time, Wouter was in a race carriage at the indoor racing car race track in Delft. The weather was bad, and there was nothing else to do. Then I said, ‘Let’s try karting,’ says his father, Sandrine. ‘It was just for fun. “ I immediately enjoyed doing it, ” says Wouter.

So Sandrine enrolled his son in karting. Wouter went to Nootdorp to train every Sunday. There he met someone from the PdB Racing Team from Vlaardingen. He said I could come and train abroad. I thought that was really cool. Since then I’ve been driving horseback riding outside.

Fast sport

“I think karting is very special. You need good timing, you need to know when to overtake. It is often exciting as well. It’s a fast sport and it is a sport where you make your own choices. In soccer you have a whole team, and in this sport you are more independent. I am.” Really liked that about that.

And Wouter is also good at that. His mechanic and supervisor Geoffrey Hindler, who was himself a former kart player, was proud of Wouter. The beginning was difficult. The master was not satisfied, because on dry land we were a little lacking. We’ve finally found the right setting. Then we said we were going to win the final and he did it great. I am very satisfied. ‘

Racing this weekend was not easy. To the final meters, Wouter fought against the number two for the win. It was a finished photo, but I still came first. I knew I had won, I could see that I crossed the finish line before the other boy.

This season Wouter continues to lead the GK4 and NK Championships. Wouter has big dreams: “I want to be a hero.”
