How did you deal with road racing back then?

For my third birthday my parents gave me a Yamaha PW 50. From that moment I started racing, and did it until I was eleven. When I was eleven years old, we reached out to Renee Brink. He had a racing team at the time, and I was offered to ride Remar Racing in the Aprillia 125cc Junior Cup. At the time I was 12 years old.

Who is the driver who fought the best fights on the race track?

I’ve had a lot of great fights on the track. I often found myself in a situation where the win was decided on the last lap. I look back on this pretty well. I will mention a number of highlights;
2010: The battle with Ari Voss for the Dutch Superbike title. I was 20 at the time and could become a Dutch Superbike champion for the first time. We were tied on points and there was still one race left. The entire race was a penny change. On the last lap, in the last corner I managed to get past him again and I won the race and thus the Dutch title.
2013: I had a wildcard for BSB. In this race, she fought Noriyuki Haga, Ryuichi Kionari and Peter Heckman for places between P6 and P9. These guys had a proven track record at the time. It was definitely beautiful and helpful to combat that.
2017: During the SBK World Weekend at TT Circuit Assen I raced the European Superstock 1000. During the first 8 or 9 laps I was at the wheel of Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael Ruben Rinaldi. I couldn’t attack, but I could continue. In the last few laps, I unfortunately had to release something.

Best motorcycle I’ve ever ridden and why?

Every year the engines were getting better. The Yamaha R1M and BMW S1000RR were both top-of-the-line. But now I know a bike only gets good when the right people are working on it and you as a rider have the right engineer.

What is your favorite track that you rode and why?

Spa-Franchorchamps and T. T. Circuit Assen. Spa-Francorchamps because of the design and TT Circuit Assen because of the atmosphere and support I have always received.

What’s the weirdest and funniest thing you’ve seen in a race?

There are many. I had a great time racing and laughed a lot. But if we’re talking about the most hilarious, I’ll end up with a rental car and flights for the Guardi Civil.

What is the best thing you learned from racing?

I think that shaped me as a person and that you learn to struggle in life to achieve certain things. Of course I am also happy that I was able to win so many titles and that the hard work paid off. Plus a large network.

What did you do after your active road racing career?

I direct/support a number of guys in the race. The guidance I give is different for each rider. In general, every rider has a different request for help. This way I help one runner find the right team and finish the contract and I can better help the other runner decide the racing strategy. Last year I helped: Vasco van der Valk, Ricardo Brink, Sander Cruz and Jeffrey Boys.

Do you still exercise in any way?

See question above.

Which current driver do you respect the most and why?

I respect all the riders who take their sport very seriously and do everything they can to get the most out of it. But it is also sure to respect the family around the knight. Take the Veijer family as an example. Up and down to Italy twelve times a year to let Colin race there. Hats off.

Who do you see as the greatest (currently active) road racing talent in the Netherlands and why?

I find it difficult to make this choice. I think we have some players who are on the move quickly internationally and in the coaching classes at the national level.

How do you view the current races, both nationally and internationally, from your experience?

I think there has been a lot of effort in recent years to improve things for young people. I think this will definitely help in the future. To finally reach the international top, you need more than talent. Think about the right people, perseverance, a budget, and a little luck. I regret to see that money has become more important. As a result, it’s increasingly common that it’s not the drivers at the right speed in the right category, but the drivers who make the most money.
