Welcome on my website. 

I am Rowan Grinwis and I live at Capelle aan den IJssel – The Netherlands. Rowan 13 jaar

When I was just 5 years old I Rowan schoolfoto 2009started to drive go-kart.
My first time was at the track of go-kart club Strijen, which is an outdoor track.
When I was 6,  I did the clubs Wintercourse, in which I learned the meaning of the flags, how to handle my kart and behave at the track.
After I knew all this. I started to drive clubraces. I was 6,5 than.

When I just turned on 8 years. I drove my first National race of the NAB with the Parilla 60cc.

In 2010 I drove Micromax with the Chrono. I missed the first race, because I entered this competition the seconc race of the season at Spa, Belgium. I also drove the BNL at Ostricourt and Genk and became 3th in this competition.

In 2011 I started to drive Minimax. With the Maddox kart I entered  the Chrono and BNL competition.  I had a lot of sponsors then: Maddox-racing, PdB-racing,  Delta Logistiek, Tilllett racingseat, MIR, Speadwear, HO Van Meever, family and ofcouse my parents.

In 2012 I lived in Belgium and with the Maranello of EGP I drove the VAS and 1 race of the BNL.  My nummer in this competition was 2. However due to material  failure I was not able to set this number this season.

2013: This year I did not drive. There was no money. I understood. Untill …….. we wanted to sell our engine and we offered it to Rafael Real del Sarte. He offered me to drive the two last races of the Chrono, so I did. Many thanks to Rafael, it was an exitement to drive again in the mini-Max-class. 

2014: A new year a new season in the Rotax junior-class. My dad started working at DHG and took care of Olivier Hart. Driving together is having fun for two and learning for two aswell and that is why I was enabled to drive this year together with Olivier in the Chrono NL junior class. It was a good year. Ended up as 5the of the Junior-class and was the 3th Rookie. I got a nice trophee for it. 

2015: Allthough I am just 14 years and still able to drive in de junior-class, I started to drive senior. It is a class with a lot of experient and older pilots, However, we will see what I will be able to achieve this year.
