Didier's passion for classic cars was encouraged from a young age by the existence of the family car dealership. Having 'raced' pedal cars in the family showroom from the very early years around tight hairpins made out of Rover 75's and chicanes of still to be delivered MG's, the inner petrolhead was raised from early on.With the world famous Circuit de Spa- Francorchamps virtually around the corner, Didier (1996) started to attend multiple motorsports events as the Spa 24 hours, and classic car events as the Spa Classic and the Spa Six Hours together with his dad Marcel.With a Bachelor degree Mechanical Engineering in the pocket, Didier is now preparing an MBA degree at the United International Business School. The combination of Mechanical Engineering and a more business-oriented master both lay a great foundation for all sorts of activities in the classic car industry. His own pride and joy is a 1996 Mini Cooper SPI 'Kensington' in dark British Racing Green.Email me

Marcel (1965) is a tax advisor/co founder of a regional accountancy firm with an international praxis. Just as his brother Erik, he was literally raised at garage Bollen, and spent his childhood playing between and in cars. Visits to the 24 hours races of Spa and Le Mans have been regular highlights on his agenda since early childhood. Already at a very young age, Marcel developed a profound passion for old Mini Coopers. In 1988 he bought his first Austin Cooper, a car sold new by his father in 1962 to the seller. This car, being the eldest registered Cooper in the Netherlands, underwent a nut-and- bolt restauration in the 90s and is still in the family’s possession. In 2017 a mint 1965 Morris Cooper S was added to the collection. Rallying is one of Marcel’s passions, for this a 1965 Alfa Giulietta Sprint has been thoroughly rally prepared. This connection lead to a serious addiction to classic Alfa’s in general, especially Bertone GT’s and Giulia’s.
