Michael Herck

From BluWiki

Michael Herck (born August 4, 1988 in Bucharest, Romania) is a Belgian-Romanian race car driver. He currently drives for the David Price Racing team, which was bought by his father Andre in April 2009.

Career

Formula Renault

After karting, Herck moved to the Formula Renault Monza Winter Series in 2003 and competed in the full series the next year. He won the 2004 championship with five wins and 375 points. He also competed in the Belgian and Spanish 1.6-litre series in 2004, winning the latter championship.

In 2007 he drove in the World Series by Renault for the Comtec Racing team, but failed to score any points.

Formula Three

Herck moved to Formula Three for 2005, winning the Austrian championship. He also made selected appearances in that year's British and German championships. In 2006 he competed in the Formula Three Euroseries with backing from compatriot Bas Leinders, scoring twelve points to finish fifteenth in the championship.

GP2 Series

Herck competed in the first eight races of the inaugural GP2 Asia Series in 2008 for the FMS International team before breaking his wrist in an accident, missing the last round of the season.

He was scheduled to drive in the main GP2 Series for 2008 as well, but was initially replaced by Giacomo Ricci in the David Price Racing team until his wrist healed. After two rounds of the championship, Ricci was dropped in favour of Andy Soucek as Herck continued to recover. He finally made his GP2 début at Magny-Cours. He has continued with DPR for the 2008-09 GP2 Asia Series season, and also the 2009 GP2 Series season.
