My first contact with motorsport was at the age of 14. My father took me to a karting track in Lublin (Poland) and I instantly fell in love with it. Not long after that I had my first professional test with the German DP Racing team, based in Jüterbog (Germany).
Sadly, the racing possibilities in Poland are very small, so my first steps had to be taken abroad. The beginnings were slow, but in my second year I made an appearance in the German Kart Championship.
During the next season, I was a regular contestant and moved to a Polish team, which was part of the Peter de Bruijn racing family. In 2009 I became the Polish Kart Champion in the KF2 category, and I also had my first test in a Formula Renault 2.0. Before the year ended I entered my first single-seater race.
In 2010 I took part in FR2.0 NEC series where I scored my first podium finish and ended the championship in 7th place. I moved to the Inter Europol Competition team in 2011, continuing my adventure in the Formula Renault.
In the year 2014 I took part in BOSS GP Series in a GP2 car, claiming the championship in my first year. In 2015 I lost the championship by just one point.
Since 2016 I am racing with a Ligier LMP3 in endurance races. Together with my teammate in the VdeV Martin Hippe, we claimed the 2016 championship in LMP3 Class. After some bad luck in the first couple of races in the ELMS, we still managed some good results and finished 12th in the team classification.
This year we will defend the VdeV title and hopefully claim one in the ELMS.

I first started karting when I was 4 years old and did the first few laps together with my father. When I was 7 years old I went karting and that was it. I had found my hobby and shortly thereafter got my first Bambini kart.
In 1995 and 1996 I was in the highly competitive Bambini class with opponents like Sebastian Vettel. From 1997 till 2000 I was with the ICA Juniors in the DJKM as well as in the European Championship. The year after I was also active in the DKM and the European Championships in ICA Formula A. I finished 6th in the German championship. And I completed the first test drives in the Formula King.
In 2002 I entered the German Formula Championship. At the end of the year I re-oriented myself for the next year and started in two races in the Formula BMW Germany. But due to budget reasons I did not reach the success I wanted that year, neither in 2003 nor in 2004.
However, I did race in the Austrian Formula 3 at the end of 2004. Immediately I felt good in the car and finished once 2nd and 3rd.
Then in 2005, I participated in the German ATS Formula 3 Cup as well as in the Austrian Formula 3. I finished the year as the third-best rookie and 6th overall in the ATS F3 Cup and 2nd in the Austrian Championship.
In winter 2005/2006 I helped develop the then new Formula 3 for LOLA cars. However, again for budget reasons I had to stop racing.
In 2016, it was possible to restart my racing career with the Inter Europol Competition team in the French VdeV endurance Series in an LMP3 car. After 10 years without any racing, I was immediately able to build on old successes and secure the championship with my team-mate.
In 2005, however, there was another opportunity for me in motorsports. I started working as a driver’s coach as well as a race and data engineer. In my first year, I took care of today’s F1 driver Sergio Perez.
After that I was successfully active as a racing and data engineer in the following series:
Formula BMW Germany, Formula Renault NEC, Formula 3 Cup, Remus F3 Cup, ESET CUP, Superleague Formula and in 2016 in the ELMS.

My first experience on a circuit was at the famous Nürburgring, it was just a couple of laps in a regular car. I liked the feeling being in the car on a circuit but didn`t enjoy that other cars were passing me with double the speed.
During the summer of 2015 I really wanted to figure out how a proper race car would feel. I started, with always a professional driver next to me, to drive a Ferrari 458 Challenge and a Porsche 991 Cup car. I especially liked the feeling that I got better and better.
In 2016 I wanted to learn and get more experience. To be able to drive a lot in a short period of time, I decided to participate in some long-distance races; the 24h of Zolder and in two other 24h series races in Barcelona and Brno. My first big success was in Brno, where we finished first in the 991 Cup class.
After this I wanted to move up in the world of closed wheel race cars. I raced the Mercedes SLS GT3 in a few races and in late 2016, I got to know the LMP3.
This year I will participate in the VdeV with the Inter Europol Competition team in an LMP3 Ligier JS P3 car and in both the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe,
My goal is to become a competitive GT3 and a Le Mans Prototype driver.
2015: Testing in Cup class / challenge class cars
2016: 3 24h races, 1st place in the 991 Cup in 24h series Brno
I was born and raised very close to the Nürburgring. My father and I started going to the races when I was about three years old. From that moment on I couldn´t stop thinking about racing. But there was no budget, not even to go karting.
When I was 10 the only chance I got was to start in motocross and to do some indoor kart races. I really enjoyed doing this till my 16th.
Around this age, my wish to start a career in car racing became stronger and stronger. I was very lucky when my family had the chance to buy a Toyota Yaris for the Yaris Cup. However, no money was available to run this car for a full season.
So, every day after school I went to visit all the local companies to ask for a small sponsorship. It was hard work, but in the end I was successful and able to finance my first season in Toyota Yaris Cup. For the second year in the Yaris Cup I was extremely lucky to find a big sponsor. Finally, my dream came true.
My next step was to participate in some endurance races. On the Nürburgring Nordschleife I raced with gentleman drivers and teams to whom I am still thankful that they gave me my first chance to race without a budget and to get the first real sensation what is felt like to be a professional driver.

I started racing a Formula Ford in 1997 and stayed loyal to this class for about 12 years. In 2009 I participated with Romain Lannetta in a Norma M20 in the VdeV Championship races at Dijon and Jarama.
As I just couldn’t keep away from the Formula Ford, I returned in 2012 and went on to win the Formula Ford festival in the Zetec category.
Then from 2013 to 2015 I went back to a Norma in the prototype category with the Palmyr Team in the VdeV championship.
And then,once again, back to the Formula Ford Historic racing in 2016. Still very competitive, I won 5 races.
When I was 10 I got involved with the kartsport and my first race followed at age 13. First at club level and from 1997 on a national level and from 2000 on an international level.
In 2000 and 2001 I won the Dutch national Kart Championship (class: ICC). In 2001 I became the CIK / FIA Vice European Championship ICC while in 2002 I came in second in the Italian Open Masters Championship ICC. In 2003 I won the German Jörg van Ommen ICC and became 8th at the CIK Wordcup Super-ICC.
Then in 2004, I switched during the season to F3. In 2005 I won the Recaro F3 Cup in Germany. In 2006, I was the last driver with Opel engine in the F3 Euro Series. All other drivers had a Mercedes engines and despite me having another engine I won a race at Brands Hatch, came in 3rd at the Norisring and 4th at the Nürburgring. Unfortunately, I did not have the budget to finish the season.
Without sufficient budget I was forced to dedicate myself again to the kartsport. This time not the short track but the longdistance kart racing; in the Superkart 250! Nothing is so fast and so affordable.
In 2008, I became the CIK / FIA Superkart European Champion. In that year I also started as VW works test driver and did this for three years till the test team and the factory participation in the F3 ended and VW devoted itself entirely to the WRC.
Since then, I am superkart factory driver for the engine manufacturer VM-Motor. In 2014, 2015 and 2016 I became the French FFSA champion. Also in 2015 and 2016 I finished second in the CIK / FIA European Championship.
This year after eight years I changed from MS-Kart to Anderson and after the first race am leading the championship.
Since 2015 a friend, my father and I have been trying to establish a new vehicle concept to establish our own racing series in the near future. The goal was to build a small, lightweight and technically simple prototype race car that drives fast and is affordable in terms of purchase and maintenance. The result is our “Performer” and about the project is at: www. Performer-by-elkmann.de.
Wolfgang Jordan raced motorbikes back in 1976 and only restarted in motorsports six or seven years ago in a Porsche 996 Cup car. Since 2014 Jordan races in the Boss GP. First in a Lola, then a WSR 3.5 and then he moved to a Formula 1 car in 2015; a Benetton ’97 (from either Berger or Alesi). This year (2017) he races in a GP2 car.
When Technical director Michael Keese of the Inter Europol Competition team asked him to join the team for a race at Zandvoort in the GT & Prototypy Challenge he immediately said yes.
Laub first started racing only back in 2013 in the GP Boss series. His first year he raced in a F3000 car, then for two years in a WSR 3.5 car, to continue in 2016 in a Forti type FG03 Formula 1 car. The Forti FG03 was the car with which the Forti team participated in two or three races in the 1996 F1 season. Drivers then were Luca Badoer and Andrea Montermini.
The team also folded that year. Laub finished first in the Master class of the Boss GP in 2013, 2014 and 2015. Hans Laub shared the LMP3 with Martin Hippe at Zandvoort in May in two one-hour races during the Max Verstappen / Jumbo family day.
I was always interested in cars and racing. My first car (in 1969) was a Mini 850. But at that time, I was busy with sailing competitions (World Championships, European and German Championships with a 470 and 505) After some clubsport – events with a Cooper S and a Lotus Seven, I stopped sailing and bought my first race car in 1975. It was a Mini 1275 GT. Between 1975 and 1979 I competed in hill climb and slalom competitions because – as a student – I was short of money.
In 1979 I started my business as an Attorney and stopped motor racing until 1993. In 1993 and 1994 I competed in the Ferrari 348 Challenge. As this competition started to become too rough I changed to Historic Racing. In 1995 and 1996 I was racing a Lola T 70 (CanAm and Le Mans car) and used to win my class. During that time, I also raced a Mini Cooper S twice (1 win, 1 dnf) and 1996 and 1997 took part in endurance races with a historic Ginetta G 4 (2x 6 hours Spa – 1 podium, 1 dnf) and 1 x 24 Hours Paul Ricard (dnf). After that I stopped racing and emigrated to South Africa.
In 2005 I came back to Germany. In 2010 I made my first steps in motor racing again (practise with a 2 litre prototype in Hungary and a Radical SR 3 in Ascari). In 2011 I raced the PRC Honda in the AvD 100 Miles Series. In Monza, I saw the BOSS GP series and was fascinated. I decided to change to BOSS GP. In 2012 I had a 2003 Dallara Nissan 3l – my first monoposto – but it was not competitive. So, I sold it and bought a 3,5l car from the year 2005. With this car, I raced during 2013- 2015 and had 4 wins in the Masters class. In 2016 I bought the GP 2 but this season wasn`t very successful due to technical problems. That was the reason why I left my team (Hoffmann) at the end of 2016 and changed to Europol.
