About Gilles My career Karting Ayrton Senna Calendar Sponsoring Links Contact

September 2011 I drove my first lap on the fun kart circuit of GKS Genk. I immediately loved the speed and the challenge to control the kart.

October 1st 2012 I started senior max karting in my Birel (that had competed in the world finals of 2011 in Abu Dhabi).

November 2013 I drove my first race, the BEKC in Genk and finished 8th out of 36.

2014 has been the start of my competition career participating BMC and BNL.

July 1st 2014 GKS Lemmens Power welcomed me in their team. I am proud working and racing in a team where people like Jenson Button, Jos and Max Verstappen and Jerome D’Ambrosio started their careers.

2015 and 2016 I participated in senior max class. I made good progression and learned a lot. The 2017 season I competed in DD2 class. With the support of GKS Lemmens Power we made the right choise: champion in Belgian Max Challenge and 5th in BNL karting series. 2018 I became vice-champion in BMC and 3th in BNL. I also went to the Rotax Max Grand Finals for team Belgium in Brazil.

2019 endurance races in Belcar and BGDC were the next step in my racing career.
