The Grosjeans: Living the American RV life

Romain Grosjean will open a new chapter in his motorsport career next week when he takes part in the opening round of the 2021 IndyCar series at Barber Motorsport's Park in Alabama.

The Dale Coyne Racing driver - the man who "walked out of fire" last year in Bahrain as he describes himself - is set to enjoy life on the road this season, indulging part-time in an adventurous RV lifestyle along with wife Marion.

If as an outdoorsman you need any tips on campgrounds or taking in the American beauty next summer, just ask Romain!

Phillip van Osten

Motor racing was a backdrop from the outset in Phillip van Osten's life. Born in Southern California, Phillip grew up with the sights and sounds of fast cars thanks to his father, Dick van Osten, an editor and writer for Auto Speed and Sport and Motor Trend. Phillip's passion for racing grew even more when his family moved to Europe and he became acquainted with the extraordinary world of Grand Prix racing. He was an early contributor to the monthly French F1i Magazine, often providing a historic or business perspective on Formula 1's affairs. In 2012, he co-authored along with fellow journalist Pierre Van Vliet the English-language adaptation of a limited edition book devoted to the great Belgian driver Jacky Ickx. He also authored "The American Legacy in Formula 1", a book which recounts the trials and tribulations of American drivers in Grand Prix racing. Phillip is also a commentator for Belgian broadcaster Be.TV for the US Indycar series.
