The Baumanis’ name is already well known in the Baltics from the early nineties, when the father of the three brothers, Andris, took part in Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian rally championships. He concluded his career in 2008 and began teaching his youngest son, Jānis, who started his career in crosskarts and has now grown to become one of the fastest drivers in the World Rallycross Championship.
Three brothers – Jānis, Artis and Rihards – are now taking over from Andris to establish the Baumanis name in motorsports outside of the Baltics as well.
Artis began racing rallycross in 2015, this year Artis is European Vicechampion in category Super1600!
Rihards is the oldest of the three brothers, and began racing in the B600 buggy class of the Latvian autocross championship in the middle of the 2014 season. He gradually became faster with each passing event, and finished the season by taking 2nd place in the last event, in just his third race in autocross!
Why choose Baumanis motorsport?
Because of our passion for racing, competing and the great willingness to win. Our name has been known in motorsports for more than two decades and that is not going to change any soon!
