How did it all start for you?

It all started after I met coach (Danny Ungur). He encouraged me to go at Straja in Alba county for a hill climb stage with his Ford Fiesta, after that another stage followed and so on.

What is the most difficult thing about being a rally driver?

The most difficult thing is trying to convince my wife to let me ride, I’m kidding. I think that the most difficult thing is trying to find the financial support for rallying.

If you weren’t a rally driver, what would you be doing?

For now, I’m only a part time rally driver but I would like to be a full time rally driver.

What is the best/worst road car you have ever driven?

The best road car I ever drove was an Audi S3 with 355bhp and the worst car was a VW Transporter T3.

What would your ideal sandwich have on it?

Prosciutto and gorgonzola.

What car(s) do you own now and what’s your daily driver?

For now I own a Citroen DS5, yes … it’s French - and my daily driver is my wife’s VW Polo.

Favorite car of all time?

Although I’m an Alfa Romeo fan I’ll have to choose the Porsche 911.

Do you have any points on your driver’s license?

I don’t have any points at the moment, but last month I was very close to getting some points.

RWD, AWD or FWD and why?

RWD for fun, AWD for an SUV and FWD ... I don’t like FWD for nothing.

If you could be someone else for a day (dead or alive) who would you be?

I would like to be a car show presenter because I love their jobs.
