When he was sitting in the passenger seat of a modified Dacia and saw his older friend blindly storm the intersection, Ionut realized it was time to get his own driver’s license. He waited to turn the right age since, back then, he was still in high school. He did learn one thing from those aspiring racers he used to hang out with: hold the wheel of the car you’re in.

When it comes to his preferences, our newest team member will always want to get the oldest ride in the barn. He’ll be the first to try a steam-engined car and will probably start a random discussion about it. Modern designs are rarely going to his likes, but when we tease him with annoying questions, our “celebrities specialist” will eventually admit hypercars are what he dreams of.

Personal motto: It’s later than you think, so push the pedal.
