Andrea Tomba

ANDREA TOMBA – DRIVER, LOGISTICS & TEAM MANAGER

Born in Sweden and brought up by Italian parents and a French educational system before going to University in London, England, to study business, Andrea has quite a varied background.

However, although drawn to the Sea, Andrea quickly became enticed by the locals love for off-road racing. That love lead to Andrea owning his first race car in 1996, a Class 9 Buggy, after which he moved up to Class 7, driving for the TECATE Off Road Racing Team, and later moved up to Full Size pick ups, Class 8 Open, where Andrea still competes.
