Ralf Kelleners is from Dinslaken, Germany. His father was a European touring car driver and they share the same helmet design.

Kelleners offers a strong endurance driving style, – "I'm a safe driver. I can go quick without being hard on the chassis or taking risks. I can go a good race speed without causing any trouble."

"A race-car driver has to have a very big ego to be successful. But in sports-car racing, it's different. You have to work with your co-drivers. You may be the quicker driver, but if you don’t work with your teammate, your car may not win."
