Show Us Your Smartphone: Joel Eriksson
Fans of Joel Eriksson already knew it: their idol is not only fast on the race track but also on the internet. The 18-year-old scores with high speed in the social networks and delivers a lot of information about the current races in a very short time.
Information in Swedish and English
After the races, he writes statements and posts photos and video comments on his performance. And this in English and Swedish – for his fans at home. The driver from Tomelilla has nearly 2700 motorsport fans who follow him on Facebook and 1245 followers on Instragram.
The Motopark pilot mainly uses Facebook and Instragram. When it comes to social media frills such as Snapchat, Joel is out. These fun apps are not part of the repertoire he likes to use. He also doesn’t like to take photos of himself.
So, it’s kind of a surprise that Joel has the two best selfies of the team: both show him with his helmet on in his race car (see photos below).
A photo of himself and his girlfriend graces the background of his iPhone. To him, the most important things are phone calls and messaging. With his team colleagues Marino Sato and Keyvan Andres Soori, he is connected in a WhatsApp group.
