One of the championship's most experienced drivers, Kremer has never tackled a full WRC programme, but has twice finished in the top 10 at Rallye Monte-Carlo. He was 10th in 1997 and eighth the following season, which remains his best result.

He was German rally champion in 1996, 1998 and 1999 and lifted the European Rally Championship in 2001 in a Toyota Corolla WRC.

He moved up to WRC the following season and started six rounds in a Ford Focus RS WRC. However, his season was best remembered for a huge crash in Germany, from which he escaped uninjured.

In 2003 Kremer tackled the FIA Asia-Pacific Championship at the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VII and won the title, before taking second the following season.

After many years out of the sport, Kremer returned to the WRC 2 category with Stohl Racing in 2013 and finished 13th, firstly in a Subaru Impreza and then in a Ford Fiesta RRC.

Another WRC 2 season followed in 2015, this time with Skoda's all-new Fabia R5. A regular front-runner, his best result came on the final round in Wales when he finished fourth in class.

Podiums in Monte-Carlo and Germany helped Kremer to eighth in the category in 2016 and he returns for 2017 in his Fabia R5.
