I am Simon Larsson
I am a 20 year old race car driver, born and raised in the south of Sweden. In 2016 I did my third international racing season.I have learned a lot during these last three years but as a race car driver and as a person.
Every time I sit in my race car I get better and faster, but I also get a really big smile on my lips. Last year I drove Audi Sport TT Cup, I finished P6 in the Rookie cup. This year I will keep racing in an Audi but in the Audi RS3 LMS. This car will run against 40 other cars in TCR Germany.
Motocross from early age
My interest from engines and racing started at an age of two. My Dad and older brother drove Motocross and I loved it. When my older sister Felicia got a Minicross Yamaha PW 50 and I wanted to drive it.
My dad got a used sidecar and added that to the PW and off we went. I could drive but my sister had to pull back my hand from the gas, not to crash. When I was four I got my first Motocross bike, a KTM 50 SX Pro. It was to wild for me som our Danish friend made the clutch a little bit soft and then I cold drive.
I drove in local races and club races in Sweden.I also rode the Fast50’s bikes. I liked to ride on gokart tracks as supermoto. It was great fun. I started to ride club races again with a Suzuki 65cc bike, but then my family started to quit, and my 4-wheel career started.
