Hans's first season racing with the FISC Spridgets was 1999 and he came back for more in 2000.
He built his own car with help from Koen Weerheijm. (see below) & got his Dutch racing licence by attending the racing school at Assen.
His first ever race was Croix-En-Ternois in 1999 with the FISC cars. He had a good clean battle with Dave Grove at Spa & was shown the ropes at the Nordschleife by Carel Küthe.
The next race, Croft (UK ) didn't go too well. The free practice on Friday was fine & the car was going well. Unfortunately the officials wouldn't let Hans race over the weekend because He didn't have a licence valid for "Europe" , just Holland.
Maybe the UK officals attitude will change when Britain finally joins the EU !!
2002 is Hans' fourth season with FISC, the target is a better handling car, and a lot of fun, good clean battles, fewer technical problems, beer, wine and Willems good food.
Hans is regularly accompanied to the races by his wife.
An Austin Healey Sprite MkII which became a MK I in 2002.
The car was rebuilt from a standard Midget shape to a Frogeye shape using fibreglass pannels all over.
It runs with a 1380cc Engine, Twin SU's, a straight cut close ratio box & limited slip diff.
