BENJAMIN

GOETHE

Benjamin was bitten by the racing bug at a very young age, but only started competitive racing at the age of twelve. He began karting in the French National Championship and climbed the ladder all the way up to the IAME International Final in 2018.

In 2018, aged 15, Benjamin made his debut in single-seater racing, contesting his rookie season with DriveX School in the Spanish Formula 4 Championship.

He has also contested multiple GT and endurance races, taking four wins in the Spanish GT Championship and finishing on the podium at both the Barcelona 24 Hours and the Abu Dhabi 12 Hours.

In 2020 Benjamin entered his first full GT season, racing in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup with Team WRT, followed by a fruitful 2021 which saw Benjamin running a full GTWCE campaign in Sprint and Endurance Cup, taking three podium finishes.
