The Ultimate GT driver, Danny Kroes, was born on November 5th 1999. This Dutch guy started his racing career in 2011, as a lot of talented drivers, in karting. He quickly became better and better and in 2016 he switched from karting to drive in the Spanish Formula 4 Championship where he finished 11th in his first season. After this open wheel adventure he got a Seat Leon TCR International series seat at Ferry Monter Autosport in 2017. In 2018 he managed to get himself on the podium in his second race at Circuit Zandvoort.
“Danny is the ultimate GT driver”
After his TCR adventure Danny was asked by Lamborghini to drive in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Pro series in 2019, which he won together with his teammate Sergei Afanasiev driving for the formation of Bonardi Motorsport. At the 24 hours of Zolder he even took pole position, put down the fastest race lap and the class win.
“Driving GT’s is a real specialism.” Danny tells, “You have a lot less downforce than in an open wheel car and the Lamborghini is even more difficult to get under control with more than 620hp on the rear wheels. But if you manage to get it right, you can go so fast!”
This year Danny continues his endeavours with Lamborghini as a GT3 Academy driver for the Italian brand for Vincenzo Sospiri Racing in the Italian GT Sprint series with the #63 Lamborghini Huracan GT3.
Danny will join Trackside Legends as a Track Athlete, which means Trackside Legends will support Danny in his online presence. This way his on track performance will be shown in the best way possible online. Starting with a brand new website.
