At the age of 16 I had my debut in the Romanian Championship, class 125. I finished my first championship in fifth place. The next six years I spent practicing to improve my riding skills and occasionally took part in private races.
In 2013 my efforts were rewarded with a second place in the Speed Park Challenge Cup. Since 2016 I teamed-up with DriveMag Riders as a motorcycle editor. This position is allowing me to test and write about the newest on the market.
As far back as I can remember I was always in love with motorcycles. The feeling you get when racing a motorcycle are close to a supersonic plane flying close to the ground. This is beyond addiction, it's passion.
Second place in Speed Park Challenge Cup
With only five races in this season I still finished 5th in RoSBK (Class 600 Superstock)
1st place in the National Championship & RoSBK, 3rd place in the East European Championship
Aiming high: the National Championship & Alpe Adria
Here are a few examples of participation fees for some of the championships I'm considering:
The tyres I use come from Dunlop. For one round I need four tires (two front and two rear), and they cost €700.
The logistics, box, gas and mechanic cost €250 per round.
Motorcycle maintenance (oil, brake pads, servicing etc.) can cost around €400/month.
My 2016 budget was €12.000 and, with big cuts and great economy, I managed to participate in 13 rounds.
Besides participating in Romanian National Championship, Romanian Superbike, and East European Championship, I'm also looking to participate in the Central European Championship (Alpe Adria).
The Alpe Adria Championship has the same importance as the European Champion. The competition is high, involving very good riders and high media interest. The next phase it will be for sure The World Superbike Championship.
To participate and win in all the competitions I need financial help. Motorsports enjoy high media interest and every race will be live on TV and the internet.
