    Q. Thanks for accepting our interview offer Gregory. Now please tell us about yourself? What do you do? Where do you live? Family?

    A: Hello all, i'm Gregory Degreef, i'm living in Belgium(Brussels) and im 33 years old. No work(some problem with knee after a stupid bike crash in 2006) no girl, no kids, only with my best friend Laika (my dog). I studied auto mechanics. My last job was "truck driving". I cant live without "racing", i started at 5 years old with motocross, from 11 i started driving with the car of my dad, since my 18 i drive with "road" bikes, started with Ducati Monstro 600 then i traded it with a ZXR 750 and some funny and stupid guys stole it (with drops of oil which was sinking to exhaust, braking engine some days before) after that i bought a ZX9R and drove 3 years with it before a stupid "crash" at 60KM/h and 2 turns before my house... :s. In 2003 i rent a rally car(Opel Manta GSI) for the "21th Rally van de Suikerstreek"(national rally).

    Q. How did you start simracing?

    A: I started "simracing" with "DTM race driver 3" where i met with 2 friendly guys from Quebec(Pierre and Viktor_QC). From there we went to Race07.

    Q. How did you find out RaceDepartment?

    A:Euuuh... lol. I dont remember exactly how... i think i was in search after setups and tips...

    Q. Now you are 4th on our rankings, did you work hard for this or did you just race as usual?

    A: I worked hard for the race in league but not really for the club events.

    A: NEVER!!!! It's the only thing what i'm still able to do... lool
