Belgian racing talent denies that he can cross … (Temse)

/ Temse –

Amaury Cordeel has gotten herself into trouble. The 18-year-old Belgian racing talent posted a video on his TikTok page in which he races over the E17 at high speed. Meanwhile, on his Instagram page, he denies that he was behind the wheel himself.

The video in question has since been removed, but Cordeel reached speeds of up to 300 kilometers per hour. The police are aware of the facts and have started an investigation. Meanwhile, Cordeel denies that it was he who committed the criminal offenses. “I’ve been racing in motorsport since I was fourteen years old and this obviously makes me crazy about speed. Yet I realize all too well that driving fast on the racetracks and not on the public road and that various videos should absolutely not be regarded as correct behavior. Furthermore, all speeding offenses that can be found in the videos are not committed by myself, but by third parties whose identity will be passed on to the right authorities at the right time. I wish to apologize once again to my family, followers, supporters, management, partners and realize all too well that with my role model I should have known better. My first will be in Barcelona within a few weeks and I wish to get rid of this disappointment with some good results. ”

The teenager from Temse will make his Formula 3 debut in May. Cordeel will do so at Campos Racing and will drive his first race at the Barcelona circuit. On August 29, the Grand Prix of Belgium is on the program, which will be held at Spa-Francorchamps.

Cordeel won the Spanish Formula 4 Championship in 2018, winning four races. He then also won two races in the F4 Championship of the NEZ (Northern Europe and the Netherlands) and one in the F4 Championship of the UAE. In the past two editions of the heavily occupied Renault Eurocup, things went less well, each time finishing 15th in the final standings.

Now he wants to shine again in F3. “This is where I want to be at the moment,” said the Belgian earlier this week to the competition’s website. “There are a lot of competitive riders from all over the world. Dueling them will help me get better. That’s why I chose this championship. Last season I had a hard time, I don’t know exactly why. I expected more from myself, but things didn’t go to plan. I’ve been training hard over the past few months. I hope to hold a training camp here in Belgium before the start of the season, together with some friends from other sports such as cycling and swimming. ”
