Peter de Bruijn, a major figure in the history of karting
The younger generations may not know this, but before founding his own PDB Racing team, the Dutchman Peter de Bruijn was a great champion and a talented technician. In a distinguished career include his European Championship and the World Championship 1980 at Nivelles against Ayrton Senna, among many other successes. Fascinated from a young age by the technology, he produced his own chassis in the 70s, later collaborated with Swiss Hutless then CRG, including the creation of Maxter engines, and was involved in the successes of Danilo Rossi, Jos Verstappen, Alessandro Manetti and of course Lotta Hellberg, 4th in the World Championship at Le Mans in 1991 in FK, the best female result to date. Kimi Raikkonen was part of the PDB Racing team, finishing second in the European Championship on Gillard chassis.
