Full name Rinus Van Kalmthout, Rinus is the son of former Boss GP Series driver, Marjin van Kalmthout. Rinus raced in various Benelux karting series before progressing to cars - and specifically the V de V Challenge - in 2016. In 2017, he moved to America and instantly achieved great success. He won the 2018 Pro Mazda title and the 2019 Formula 3 Asia Winter Series, before capping this off with a successful debut Indy Lights campaign, taking six wins in all. He finished runner-up in the series to earn a rapid - but deserved - Indycar ride in 2020. Rinus finished 14th in the standings to win the Rookie of the Year and to keep his seat in 2021.
