Kévin Estre | Behind the Visor of the Porsche GT Genius

January 18, 2021

Motorsport runs deep in the veins of the Estre family. Kévin’s grandfather competed in karting, his father started in karts before moving to single-seaters. Jean Claude Estre still runs the Formula Motorsport squad in France. He also worked alongside rising Formula 1 stars like Nico Rosberg, Jean-Eric Vergne and Romain Grosjean. “After graduating from high school in France, I worked as a member of my family team for about five years. That proved to be a formative phase in my life,” says Kévin Estre. “I got my lorry license and worked as the team trucker and mechanic. I cleaned the rims and did many other jobs. Through this I gained an insight into all the processes. That still helps me today when it comes to teamwork,” he explains. Motor racing is not only a big topic with his parents, but also with his wife Carolin.

Larry ten Voorde - The Flying Dutchman’s Journey

Larry ten Voorde - The Flying Dutchman’s Journey

November 24, 2020

Ten Voorde’s passion for motorsport was ignited early in life. From the age of eight, he spent every spare moment with friends at the go-kart track in Emsbüren, in Lower Saxony. His father Henk drove him there in the morning, and in the evening he returned to his home, the 2,500-strong community of Boekelo near Enschede. From 2007 to 2012, he won eight titles in various karting series. Ten Voorde then switched to single-seater racing with support from the Dutch motorsport association KNAF. Alongside today’s Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen, he was part of the “Talent First” squad, and at the same time completed a degree in sports and business communication.

Ten Voorde‘s special connection to motor racing was put to the test during the most difficult phase in his career. In 2014 and 2015, financial reasons prevented him from competing. His budding career was in jeopardy, but throwing in the towel was simply not an option. At the Circuit Zandvoort, he cleaned cars, polished rims or sold coffee. He turned laps on the track in his old 1998 VW Polo and he maintained contact to companies and teams through his coaching activities. The effort paid off: In 2016, he made an impressive comeback, promptly winning the Porsche Super Sports Cup at his first attempt. The following year, he took home the rookie title in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. This season yielded the next milestones: champion in both the Carrera Cup and the international Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup.

The talented youngster is well on his way to turning his passion into a professional career. Last season he made his WEC debut in the ca. 510 hp Porsche 911 RSR. Contesting the GTE-Am class, ten Voorde celebrated a victory at Bahrain on the back of clinching second place in Shanghai. He also contested this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. His next mission: he is poised to tackle the final round of the 2019/2020 World Endurance Championship on 14 November for Project 1. With the Carrera Cup title under his belt, Larry ten Voorde is ready for the next big success.
