BECOME A LEGEND
The cocktail can be explosive when you combine youth, motivation, ambition and talent! Benjamin Lessennes, who is not yet 20 years old, has spent only three seasons in motor sport to prove that he is one of the most promising youngsters in Europe.
A Benelux TCR champion in his second year, the former top-level kart racer took on the world's elite without hesitation in 2018. Called to replace Tiago Monteiro, the official Honda driver, at the beginning of the year, the Belgian has indeed made the Japanese manufacturer's colours shine by winning several Top 5s in the FIA WTCR, the World Touring Car Cup.During this interim period, he also caught the eye of Tiago Monteiro himself, the former Portuguese Formula 1 driver even becoming his manager.
As the 2019 season begins, Benjamin is ready for a new challenge. Without closing the door on touring car racing, he will compete the GT4 European Series at the wheel of a McLaren 570S GT4 entered by Team Verschuur.
Working closely with such a prestigious manufacturer and demonstrating his extraordinary adaptability: this will be Benjamin's task in this new season!
