Why did you join the team?

I joined the team because I've always had a passion for motorsport and cars in general.

What is your favorite part about being on the team?

My favorite part about being on the team is the moment when we finally hear the car start for the first time after a long season of design and manufacturing.

What made you want to take your position on E-Board?

I wanted to be a member of our Executive Board because I felt like I could help us have a much more streamlined season. I also felt like I would be able to help raise more money for our team than we have in the past.

What is your favorite car?

I don’t have one specific favorite car, but my top three would be the Nissan 240sx (S13), the Lotus Evora 400, and the Chevrolet C4 Corvette ZR-1.

If you could drive our race car on any track in the world, which would it be?

If I had the chance to drive our car on any track in the world, I'd probably choose the Nürburgring because I have a ton of experience driving on it in different simulators.

Why do you think FSAE is important, and what would you say to people who are interested in joining?

FSAE is important because our members are the future of motorsport. FSAE gives the kind of motorsport experience you would gain from being on a real race team, while being much more hands-on and accessible to many more people. To anyone who would be interested in joining our team or any FSAE team in general, I would say that it can be very time consuming, but that it is always worth the result. Being part of this team is an experience that I will always remember, and one that I believe has made me a better person.
