After a childhood spent watching rallycross races with his family, Viktor did not get behind the wheel of a car until the age of 13 (2019) – until then he had always been a football player. His passion around speed and sound of racing cars emerged by being around teams like Roger Lippens’ or Patrick Mertens’. Also is the reason why he will be competing under number 13.
And unlike most young drivers, whose first steps are taken in the world of karting before moving on to rallycross, he started his racing career in Car Cross competitions.
It wasn’t long before Vranckx began to reap success. In 2019, he became champion of the PAK Limburg competition; in 2020, he was crowned Junior Cross Car Champion in Belgium and Champion -18 in Italy. In 2021, he came 4th in the Belgian Cross Car Championship, 2nd in the Italian -18 Championship and took 5th place in the FIA XC Academy Trophy.
While relatively inexperienced in the rallycross arena compared to some of his peers, this rapid improvement is an encouraging sign ahead of Vranckx first foray into electric rallycross and he has high hopes of competing at the front from the off.
