The dream becomes reality
“I have never hidden that after our participation in the European Championship (in 2017, editor’s note) and the World Cup (since 2018, editor’s note), I also wanted to race with Racing Team Netherlands in America”, declared Van Eerd. . “I studied in America and at the time I was already attending IMSA races. As we now go to do the four biggest races IMSA really is a dream come true for me. At the start of 2021, we did the 24 Hours of Daytona as a test. It was a fantastic experience and I am very happy that it continues now. “
Van Kalmthout adds: “I think it’s great to have the chance to participate in the 24 Hours of Daytona with Racing Team Netherlands. I have always dreamed of racing with Frits, my loyal sponsor. That this dream is coming true now is great.
