BIOGRAPHY

karting

Robin started his career on an indoor gokart in Belgium. Then it quickly went towards proper outdoor karting with the Belgium GKS Lemmens Power team from Genk. Along his period there Robin scored several podiums in the Belgian, French & European championships.

Single seaters

At the end of 2008 his last karting year, Robin was invited to participate in the BMW scholarschip trials in Valencia. Robin did well and was awarded a funded scholarschip to become a Formula BMW driver the year after with German team Josef Kaufmann Racing. Robin’s first year in single seaters went well. Scoring wins & podiums in his first year he ended as best rookie & 3rd overal.

The following year 2010 Robin proved his skills and clinched the overal championship with 6wins, 13podiums & 3 pole positions! Together with the Kaufmann team Robin made the switch to the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup championship. A risky but worthy move as Robin clinched the championship on his debut year. This win allowed him to receive fundung from Renault in order to graduate into the fast and high downforce World Series by Renault 3.5 category. With Fortec Motorsports Robin once again won the title in his first try. This were 3 European single seater titles in a row! This didnt go unnoticed and Frijns was hired by Sauber Formula 1 team to become their F1 test & reserve driver for 2013. That year Robin competed some events in GP2 winning a race in his only 2nd event! The last years of single seaters was 2014 being the F1 test & reserve driver for Caterham.

He is now an official factory works driver for Audi Motorsport. Aswell Robin competed for Andretti Autosport in the famous Formula E category.

Goals

Frijns remains very ambitious for the future. “I want to exploit all my driver capapibilties to keep scoring wins & championships in all the categories I’m involved in.
