Roy turned 25 last Saturday and everything indicates that his father gave him the test ... as he did with himself in 2005, although Chanoch sold it as a gift from two Hungarian businessmen his friends, and with Roy himself who turning 20 was awarded in 2014 with a test in Valencia with a Sauber C31 of 2012.

The famous financial advisor participated, after paying 1,200,000 euros for eight laps, in the first free session of the Hungarian GP with 42 years ... staying 13 seconds of the best time of Michael Schumacher and seven of his partner Christian Albers .

Chanoch was already a millionaire when he decided to become a pilot at age 38 allowing himself to participate, with some good result, in various competitions such as the F-2000 or the World Series Indy Light, and even did another test with Jordan in Silverstone ... in addition to A few more with Minardi.
