Collin Veijer, a young Dutch racer from Staphorst, has already carved out an impressive place for himself in the world of motorcycle racing despite his tender age.

The early rise: Dutch minibike champion at the age of eight

At the tender age of eight, Collin climbed to the top of Dutch minibike racing and secured the coveted championship title. This laid the foundation for a promising racing career and made the motorsport world sit up and take notice.

International experience in the CIV Championship in Italy

Collin Veijer has proven his skills in the CIV Championship in Italy in recent years. His breakthrough came in 2017 in the Italian MiniGP class, where he not only performed exceptionally well, but also won the title of European Champion. These successes were rewarded by the Dutch Motorcycle Federation with the Ben Majoor Trophy, which was awarded to him as an "exceptional Dutch talent under the age of 21".

Surprising successes in the CIV Pre-Moto3 class and Speed Up Moto2 GP Team

As an apparent "outsider", Collin surprisingly established himself in 2nd place in the CIV Pre-Moto3 class in 2018 with an impressive 4 race wins. This success paved the way for him to join the junior team of the prestigious Speed Up Moto2 GP World Championship Team. In the following years, he regularly achieved podium finishes in the CIV Moto3 class and cemented his place in international motorsport.
