You have already won two 24 Hours of Le Mans and prestigious international races, such as the Bathurst 12H, and you have been on the 24h Daytona podium. What victories have left you the strongest emotions and why?
“The most memorable victories have come in Le Mans. It’s amazing to achieve victory with all the work and effort that goes behind that race. Another stand out was winning the supercup championship in Austin. This was a special day for everyone in the team.” 

Just as you moved smoothly from the LMP1 to GT, you raced, and won, both in endurance races and sprints. What is your approach to these two different types of races?
“The two forms are becoming closer and closer theses days. The engineers manage to build such amazing cars that we are now able to sprint a 24 hour race. The hard part comes with lap traffic. Trying not to hit anything for 24 hours isn’t easy but also if you too curious your loosing time you will never get back. It what makes sportscar racing great.” 

You have been a contender in races that are held on some of the most amazing tracks in the world. Le Mans (24 H track), Macau, Spa, Daytona, Bathurst among others. Which track gives you the most driving pleasure and with which car?
“Well at home I have 3 tracks on my wall. Le Mans, Macau and Nurburgring I think I will be adding Bathurst soon too. Theses tracks are amazing. All old school with great reward for doing it well.” 

Describe the colors you are currently using on your helmet? What do they signify? You have been a Stilo driver for many seasons now. What features do you value most about Stilo?
“At the moment I use yellow. I a long time supporter of mine always had me drive on a yellow car in carrera cup and from now on it’s really stuck. I also have a sliver fern on the side from my home country and southern cross and on the back a good luck symbol.” 

You have been a Stilo driver for many seasons now. What features do you value most about Stilo?
“I have been together with Stilo for 7 years now also from the start off getting into Circuit racing. It’s been great to be able to grow together. They are ahead of the game on all areas of technology. Most importantly they are a great family of people to work with.”
