An Interview With
Yanis Derums

What was your best race, and why?

Wakefield Park 2007: pole position and round winner at ahigh profile, national event.

Scariest moment of your career?

Big crash at the Hidden Valley race track in Darwin in 2004 where the car flipped upside down, and I was trapped with fuel dripping on me.

Favourite track and why?

Wakefield Park NSW because its good fun goat track type of circuit. Also, lot of success in V8 Utes, Mirages, MG’s and Daewoos.

Worst track and why?

Bathurst: too scary if you want to produce a good lap time. I’d much rather watch than drive. As such, I sponsored a better driver with great results!

Best season of your career?

2007: I was at my most competitive and have steadily gone downhill after that!

When did you decide to be a driver? What was your inspiration?

When I was about 10 after watching the famous Allan Moffat/ Collin Bond formation One/ Two 1977 Bathurst win.
