The story of Collin

Collin Veijer, the young rider from Staphorst, The Netherlands, has already managed to build up an enormous track record despite his young age (nineteen years old on February 19th, 2024). After having already won the title of Dutch Minibike Champion at the age of 8, the next step was to allow Collin to go through the best possible learning process so that he can learn to ride a large number of different circuits, with greater competition and dealing with other cultures.

Collin has been active for several years in the highly regarded CIV championship in Italy. In 2017 he rode in the MiniGP class, where he became European champion at the end of 2017 and was awarded the Ben Majoor Trophy by the Dutch motorcycle association KNMV as ‘special Dutch talent under 21 years’.

In 2018, as an ‘outsider’ with 4 race victories, he surprisingly finished 2nd in the CIV pre-Moto3 class, competing for the junior team of the highly regarded Speed Up Moto2 World Championship team. The following year in the regular CIV Moto3 class, several podiums were again achieved in the strong starting field.

In 2020 and 2021 a next step was made as Collin was selected for the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and participated also in the CEV – European Talent Cup (2020) and the FIM Moto3 Junior World Championship (2021) in Spain.

In order to take the final step towards a targeted start in the Moto3 Grand Prix class, Collin moved to Spain at the end of 2021. With five victories (3x Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup and 2x FIM JuniorGP) in 2022, the young Dutchman is drawing the attention of various Grand Prix teams.

In 2023, Collin made his debut as a Grand Prix rider in the Moto3 class of the MotoGP world championship for the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Team of German Peter Öttl, with the experienced Japanese Ayumu Sasaki as teammate. Collin knows how to adapt quickly. With a sixth and seventh place before the summer break, in Mugello and Assen respectively, Collin starts the second part of the season with confidence. Collin managed to score his first Moto3 pole at the Austrian Red Bull Ring, then scored his first podium place in India with a third place. He then managed to win the first Moto3 race in the Malaysian Grand Prix in Sepang and thus, after 33 years, replace Hans Spaan as the last Dutch Grand Prix winner. After scoring pole again in Valencia, Collin ends his debut season as a Grand Prix rider with a seventh place in the final championship standings.

In 2024, Collin will start his second season as a Grand Prix rider, again with the Liqui Moly Husqvarna Intact GP Team and now with the Japanese Tatsuki Suzuki as a new teammate.
