Kay van Berlo started his racing career in Europe and is now enjoying success in here in the USA. We caught up with Kay at the media luncheon just prior to the 2022 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach where he was entered in the Porsche Carrera Cup event. He fills us in on his background, his approach to his first street race in this car and plans for the future. He had a sensational race weekend at the AGPLB. We followed up with him after Sunday’s Race #2 with a Part 2 interview where he tells us how great his weekend was. Enjoy!

NOTE: Kay ended up finishing as the champion runner-up in the 2022 season.
