Tijman SMALL

This weekend we welcome top karting talent Tijmen Van Der Helm to Xcel Motorsport here at Yas Marina Circuit. From the Netherlands, Tijman tested back in December in Dubai, and having just turned 15 can now make his single-seater debut after an extremely impressive karting career which includes becoming World Champion in the Junior Rotax Category, along with 2nd place in the CIK Academy in 2017.

Although Tijmen has very little race car experience, he'll be one to watch: “We are extremely happy to welcome Tijmen to the 2019 driver line up," said team manager Paul Hardy. "We've been following his karting career for the last few years now, so it’s great to finally see him make the move into F4. We will be working really hard to develop Tijmen to the highest level before he goes on to compete in a European F4 series.” #f4uae Automobile & Touring Club of the UAE (ATCUAE)
