Enzo Ide (born 22 June 1991 in Tielt) is a Belgian racing driver, who competes in the FIA GT1 World Championship.

Racing career[edit]

Ide began his racing career in Belcar, racing a Porsche 997 GT3 for Prospeed Competition together with Ruben Maes.[1] For 2011 he stepped up to the FIA GT3 European Championship, driving an Audi R8 LMS for Belgian Audi Club Team WRT. Sharing with Gregory Franchi for the first five rounds, he won races at the Autódromo Internacional do Algarve and the Circuito de Navarra. Franchi switched to the team's other car for the final round at Circuit Park Zandvoort, and Ide was partnered by Christopher Haase – winning the second race of the weekend. Ide finished third in the drivers' championship. He also continued racing in Belcar, also for WRT alongside François Verbist. The pair finished third in the final standings, winning the 24 Hours of Zolder together with Bert Longin and Xavier Maassen.

In 2012, Ide is racing in the FIA GT1 World Championship. He is driving a Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 for AF Corse, with reigning GT3 champion Francesco Castellacci as his co-driver.

In 2013, Enzo is racing in the FIA GT Series with Anthony Kumpen and the Blancpain Endurance Series with Anthony Kumpen and Markus Winkelhock. Both championships are driven with the same Audi R8 LMS GT3 from Phoenix Racing GmbH.

Personal[edit]

Ide is the son of entrepreneur Joris Ide. He made the national media in Belgium after footage from his 18th birthday party laid on by his father was found on YouTube.[2][3]
