FIM Class A, Superstock 600 licensed rider & editor at DriveMag Riders

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.

Racing Record


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

2015: warm-up

The 2015 season started a bit slow for me. I participated in half of the races from Romanian Superbike (RoSBK). I managed to get on the podium at three from the eight rounds and finished in fifth place in general.
  • Serres Grand Prix - 9th Place
  • Motorpark round 1 - 1st Place
  • Motorpark round 2 - 2nd Place
  • Grand Prix on two Wheels - 2nd Place
  • Motorpark round 3 - 3rd Place

2016: things are looking up

This season got me fully charged. I managed to keep the same pace throughout the year and got 11 podiums.
  • Romanian Endurance Cup - 3rd Place

Romanian Superbike (RoSBK)

  • Serres Grand Prix - 1st Place
  • Brno Grand Prix - 1st Place
  • Hungaro Ring Grand Prix - 2nd Place

Romanian National Championship

  • Serres Round – 3rd Place
  • Motorpark Round 1 – 1st Place
  • Motorpark Round 2 – 1st Place
  • Motorpark Round 3 – 1st Place

East European Championship

  • Serres Round 2 – 3rd Place
  • Serres Round 3 - 6th Place
  • Motorpark Round 4 - 2nd Place
  • Motorpark Round 5 - 3rd Place
  • Serres Round 6 - 5th Place

The budget for only one round includes: participation fees, motorcycle maintenance, tyres, travel expenses.

Here are a few examples of participation fees for some of the championships I'm considering:

  • Romanian National Championship - €140
  • East European Championship - €150
  • Romanian Superbike - €200-€400

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.

The budget needed for one round is roughly €1.600.

My 2016 budget was €12.000 and, with big cuts and great economy, I managed to participate in 13 rounds.

Media Exposure

The Motorcycle

The motorcycle can be personalized according to any agreement. During the race the bikes and the riders are in the spotlight.

Along with the bike, the riding gear can be personalized to match the bike. There are virtually no limitations.

Audience Engagement

Aiming high in the 2017 season

National Championship, RoSBK, East European Championship & Alpe Adria

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.
