“Second is the first looser”
Kevin is one of the well-known faces when you hear about the name Aquila. Son of the Owner and founder Dan Suenson, Kevin has been racing for most of his life.
“I always say that I started racing before I walked my first steps” Kevin says and that’s not all wrong. At 8-months-old he started in an electric formula car for kids!
He popped into karting and got himself a pole position and a 2nd place finish at his first race. After some years in the smaller karts, he started driving Formula Ford for a college team in Denmark.
In the very first season in Formula Ford, he won the Danish Championship in the Zetec category. The year after he drove a Double-shuffle in the Danish Formula Ford Championship and OSS Championship E-class in the UK. The Danish college also wanted Kevin to participate in the Formula Ford Euro Cup at Spa Francorchamps that same year and the Nordic Cup.
He managed to take home both Championships! The Euro cup and Nordic cup!
“I felt like flying that year, racing against some really good drivers. It was nice to finish on top together with Autotech Racing in the Formula Fords and Birmingham City University / Scruffy Motorsport in the European Formula Ford Championship.”
Kevin then got the chance to drive the Danish Aquila Synergy Cup and there was a race in Lithuania on a highway.
He won the race and the championship that year and got an international test for a Porsche Cup team!
“I was so happy about the opportunity from Speedlover Racing to have a go in their Porsche Cup car. I was also sad that I didn’t have the budget to race for them, but I showed important people that I’ve got pace and great feeling about car-handling. Plus, it is always a bonus to have the fastest lap of the day!”
Kevin also got the chance to race in the Danish Super GT series and actually won a couple of races in the AM category, but once again budget got in his way for competing in the whole championship.
“Money can buy you horsepower but even if I had enough to go racing in the Le Mans series or some of the other big race series around the world, I would still, and will still come back as many times as I can to the Aquila F1000 championship for some pure racing.” Kevin says.
