International Karting Star Lammers Training At Kartdrome

Bas Lammers is a well known and respected name in the world of international karting, and this past week he has used Dubai Kartdrome as a base for his intense training programme, ahead of a very busy 2014 season in Europe, and while here also participating in, and in the end dominating, the Yas Marina round of the UAE Rotax Max Championship this past weekend.

Under the banner of the UAE's Nomad Racing Team, who are distributors of the Formula K racing karts, Lammers been pounding around the Kartdrome as he gets himself into the groove for what will be another tough international campaign.

Lammers said, "I must thank Nomad Racing and Formula-K for the opportunity to train and race here in the UAE. I am very much in the early training phase of my season, but while I am here I will participate in the Rotax Max Challenge in the DD2 Class. I am really excited to be doing this because I have only driven the DD2 once previously, and I really enjoy driving it."

"I am here also to support Nomad Racing with coaching of the young drivers in the team, using my experience from Europe maybe I can help them. My compliments to the organisation here at the Kartdrome, this is a really nice track. It has a very professional layout and is challenging for a driver," added Lammers who has an impressive karting CV (see below).

The Dutchman is highly rspected by rivals and idolised by fans in international karting circles for his tenacity as a driver and his easy going and friendly personality. He has a hearing disability that requires use of a hearing aid at all times, and he uses a special rev counter on his steering wheel to indicate to him when to change gears.

Lammers travelled with his engineer Eddy "Cash" Van Belle woh has been an influential member of the Formula K Team for a number of years, with UAE based Nomad Racing’s own Luka Jurkovic doing the spanner work.

Nomad Racing team principal, Luigi Gariano, had this to say, "The time spent with Bas has been incredible. I knew he was a champion of racing, but this week I discovered he is also a champion of life. A real role model to all the kids racing anywhere in the world"

"As Nomad Racing we are really proud to have Bas with us as both a driver and mentor. It was a privilege for the UAE's top drivers to race against him at Yas Marina, where he won but no doubt so did all the drivers he competed with, as it was a a privilege to watch him work and compete with such humility," added Gariano.

Lammers' presence on the grid for a round of the UAE Rotax Max Challenge is also testament to the progress made by local kart racing that it can attract talent of this magnitude to compete against the cream of the UAE's drivers.
