To be successful in motorsports, a competent engineer is essential. An engineer's job is to coordinate tasks in a team relating to the vehicle, to give instructions for setup changes, and to check the vehicle with the sensors installed. Besides, the engineer is the first person of contact for the driver and therefore also his confidant. Trust in the engineer is an essential ingredient for success, as the support provided during motorsport events supports the driver and can relieve psychological pressure.

I work with several teams and can find you a suitable cockpit. Depending on your skills and what is interesting for you and your career, I will advise you free of charge. It is always good to have several alternatives because such a decision is often not very easy. What does a contract with a team include? How many test days do I need for the start? What are my chances of winning? Which series is optimal for me? Questions that are important need to be discussed beforehand to have options ready for the future.

No. I am a normal freelance engineer and work for any team or driver who wants to use my services as an engineer and/or driver coach. However, the rule is that no competing team will be supported. So if a team should inquire, which uses the same vehicle, I must unfortunately give a refusal to it. Loyalty has priority for me in this case.
Here I would ask you to write me an email via my contact form. Please tell me in which race series I should be engaged and which car you drive. Use my contact form and you will get a prompt reply from me.
A very difficult question. You should already have completed championships in karting. In addition, you should have a lot of budget to be able to finance everything. Unfortunately, racing costs a lot of money. You should be aware of that. So just go to the nearest outdoor kart track and see if you can meet some kart drivers there. Just talk to them, they can give you all the info you need.
That's completely different and depends on a lot of factors. On the one hand, the race series is crucial, of course. A start in the ADAC GT4 Germany costs less per driver than in the DTM Trophy. If you want to race in a small junior series, it usually costs even less. Secondly, the car you want is a big cost factor. A Formula Renault definitely costs less than a season of GT4. Roughly you can assume that a season can cost between 50,000 to 200,000€ or even more.
Of course you can also book me if you are a driver and would like to drive on a trackday. Here I just ask you to give me all the info in advance so I can prepare accordingly. I will be happy to support you so that you can complete your training efficiently and with the greatest possible benefit.
I have no problems with traveling. I am completely free and happy to support you in all countries of the world. We would have to clarify details via contact form. You can find the contact form further down on the website.
A race engineer is a link between the driver and the team and the physics. He decides on setup changes that have a positive effect on performance and gives the driver help on how to make the best use of physics. The learning curve is significantly higher with an engineer than without. Errors can also be detected and corrected more quickly. The investment in an engineer is therefore definitely worth it!
I have been active in motorsport since 2015 and have already worked in many series. These include the ADAC GT4 Germany, the TCR Germany as well as Formula Renault Eurocup and Formula 4. Most recently also in the highly competitive DTM Trophy series.
