Hailing originally from the birthplace of Porsche – Stuttgart, Germany – Mirko first took up sport driving with the NW Alfa Romeo Club and has spent 20 years driving with NWARC and other regional clubs. In 2009 he joined ICSCC and started racing as a natural progression from sport driving, though peer pressure came into it too. The Mary Hill Loops Road Hillclimb in 2014 and the 25 Hours of Thunderhill in 2015 are among the races he’s competed in.
