ABOUT ALEX CASCATĂU
Welcome to the official website of Alex Cascatău - international racing driver and professional driver coach and reigning GT & Prototype Challenge Champion.
With over 10 years of international racing experience under his belt, Alex has often impressed with his adaptability in various racing cars. The 28 year old from Constanța, Romania is also an automotive engineer and speaks 3 languages fluently.
Having started his career in karting, he progressed into touring cars and Formula Student, and was invited by Audi Sport to their TT Cup casting at their factory in Neuburg. Alex was amongst the selected finalists. He is well-known in the paddock of the Belcar Endurance Championship, and finished 3rd in the series in 2018, in the Belcar 5 category. He made the switch to sports prototypes in 2019, first driving the Saker RapX, and then the Norma M20 for the 24h of Zolder. He also won the A2 class title in Romanian Endurance Series in 2019 and is an active sim-racer.
His performance during the 2019 Zolder 24h, where he was closely matched with Audi factory driver Frederic Vervisch, without any previous testing experience in an open-cockpit prototype, did not go unnoticed. Alex finished 3rd in class in his first ever race in the Norma
M20 and got the opportunity to race the Norma M20 FC full time in GT & Prototype Challenge the next season. He conquered the overall title at the first attempt, together with team-mate Alain Berg
In 2021 he will defend his title for Baticonsult Racing in the GT & Prototype Challenge, driving a Norma M20 FC together with Alain Berg.
Where Would I Be Without Them?
Probably on the couch, not racing.
