I would like to start by saying how happy I am being a part of Team Europcar SA!
I was a bit nervous coming back to South Africa and racing for a local team after racing for MTN/Qhubeka in Europe. My first goal was to find a team where I could be happy and enjoy racing on the local circuit. After my bad luck and injuries in Europe the local teams were a bit tentative to sign me but Nicholas White and George Corbett believed in me and offered me a ride which I ended up taking and have no regrets.
The season has been a successful one thus far with many race wins and podiums. I believe this is due to a great team work, excellent communication and tough, power based training. An important part of our successful season was our training camp held at the start of the year in Clarens where the team had a week away from home to bond and create strong friendships together. It feels like the year has been passing quickly but this is probably due to the racing schedule were we have travelled quite a bit around the country and having a good time doing what we love. Every race I have done this year has been a highlight starting with the our first victory of the year, The Fast One. Racing does not always go as planned but we learn from our mistakes and appreciate the wins that much more.
I truly enjoy sharing my experience with the team and have learned so much from my team mates.
Thank you for all the support!
