Facts: Remmo got his racing license in 1991 at RSZ racing school and started racing in 2000  in a BMW E30 325i. After winning a lot of races and a few championships, he was up for a new challenge. In 2005 he entered a drift challenge in BMW M5 just for fun. He won this first drift-race he entered and was hooked on this spectacular form of auto sport. He began competing in drift challenges with a BMW E30 M3 with an E36 M3 engine. He won the championships in 2005, 2006 and 2007. And of course he was up for a new experience. He wanted to build a car with more horsepower to drift at even more higher speeds. He build his current car, a BMW M3 V8 with the engine of the E39 M5. From the moment he built this car he started winning again and so he won the Championships in 2008 and 2009. In the beginning of 2009 he found a new sponsor: Falken tire.
