Originating from the East of Belgium, a stone’s throw from the Luxembourg border, Tom Kohnen, a programmer by profession, sets out in motor sport in 2016. At 26 years of age, he wins his first two titles in the Supersport 600 junior category and in the Inter-Belgium-Netherlands Championship (BeNeCup). Since then, he has been rising through the ranks in a manner worthy of the great champions. On his Yamaha R6, he achieves several podium finishes on the tour. Two victories, in 2018 and 2019, in the SPA 6 hours Motorcycle event. He finishes this year’s season in 6th place in the very competitive German International Championship (IDM). But this exceptional racer keeps his feet firmly on the ground. His secret? Talent, excellent physical preparation and maximum concentration throughout the whole race!
