Racing and cars have been Johan's passion from a very young age.
Born and raised in Denmark, Johan started his racing career on the family farm when the fields were harvested and the pond frozen over. He came to the US to finish his college education and pursue racing on a regular basis. After working for Fidelity and Mullens Advertising, Johan wanted racing to be full time.
In 2001, Johan started Endurance Karting, an arrive and drive karting program that holds events up and down the East Coast. The idea came to him after writing articles for European Magazines about driving schools in the US.
All along, Johan has doing his own racing - SCCA, NASA, and Grand-AM. In 2011, Johan became a factory instructor at BMW Performance Center.
For the last 20 years racing has been Johan's hobby and profession.
