How did it all start for you?

It's quite funny actually, as a child I always liked to watch my neighbors fix their cars instead of playing with other kids. I realized that this is for me, and my grandfather pushed me to go to the karting club, after that I caught the bug and the rest is history.

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

I think the most difficult thing is the time that you spend away from home.

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

It's hard to imagine my life without rally related things, but I imagine myself being a ski instructor.

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

The best I ever drove is hard to define, I have driven a lot of very nice cars, but the worst has to be the Daewoo Damas.

What would your ideal sandwich have on it?

It's a sandwich, nothing special :).

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

I own two cars, my daily driver - a Seat Leon FR, and my recce car, Veta, a very special Dacia Logan 1.6.

Favorite car of all time?

It's hard to decide between the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 Tommi Makinen edition and the Ford Escort RS Cosworth.

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

Not at this time, but I used to have some for stupid parkings and speeding.

RWD, AWD or FWD and why?

AWD all the time, even though I have never tried a proper RWD.

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

I’m really comfortable in my skin :), so I have no idea if I would like to be someone else even for a day, but maybe I would like to live one week as a adult in the '90s.

I met Vlad a few years ago when I won a Shakedown with the Napoca Rally Academy team and I had the chance to go for a ride with Vlad in the Subaru Impreza STI. It was an awesome experience which I will most likely never forget! Can't wait to do it again!

Thank you Vlad for agreeing to take part in our 10 Questions Series!
