The Biography. 

Accomplishments

Marc became passionate about racing at an early age, around 3 years old as he spent countless hours laying in the living room playing his Porsche racing game. A silhouette of a 911 turbo controlled by a steering wheel and shift lever, moving lines and the occasional tree passing can be held responsible for his love in racing.  His parents had no idea of the future that lied ahead.


​As the years progressed, Marc's uncle noticed an interest in cars and anything else with a motor. This is when he decide to introduce him to the world of Kart racing.

Through High School, Marc spent most of his time tinkering with cars and motorcycles with his friends. It was when he made his first visit to Intense Motorsports in 2001 that Marc discovered drifting from an Option video playing in the lobby. By his Junior year in High School, Marc had saved up enough to purchase his first potential drift car, a red 1995 Nissan 240sx S14, and this is how it all started.
