He graduated from Formula Vee and tried his hand at Formula One in 1977, where he failed to qualify at his home grand prix. Nevertheless, he returned the following year with ATS, for four races, but qualified only once, at Watkins Glen.

After Formula One he returned to Formula 3 for another three years and won two rounds of the European Championship, finishing second in the series, to Alain Prost. From there he moved to one-make Renault racing, where he remains to this day. His sons Jeroen and Sebastiaan, are also racers.
