Le Mans winning trio is back at Young Driver AMR

Nicki Thiim back at Young Driver AMR for Japan

10.10.2014 - GTE

The 2014 Le Mans GTE Am class winning trio of Kristian Poulsen, David Heinemeier Hansson und Nicki Thiim is back behind the wheel of the Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage GTE at this weekends fifth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) at Fuji in Japan. Thiim had to skip the most recent round at Texas due to other commitments and returns now for the first since the brilliant victory in the GTE Am class at the 24h hours of Le Mans in June. Young Driver AMR travels as championship leader in both the GTE Am teams and drivers ranking to Japan.
Young Driver AMR won the Japanese round last year, a race that was short cut due to heavy rain. This season, the all-Danish trio in the championship leading Aston Martin Vantage GTE trio would like to repeat this success and now take another victory in „real“ racing conditions.
„We won the race last year, but as the race was short cut, we really don’t have much experience at Fuji“, Jan Struve of Young Driver AMR says. „Our aim to finish on the podium. We are in a very good position in the championship and we would like to extend our championship lead. Nicki is back this weekend, so we have again an all-Danish driver line up in the car. It’s all looking quite promising and now we hope the weather will be good.“
Out of the four races so far in the 2014 WEC season, the Aston Martin Racing entered Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage won two rounds and finished second in the remaining two rounds. Young Driver AMR wants to continue this streak with a fifth consecutive podium finish. Kristian Poulsen: „Our target number one is to finish the race and add further points to our account, but I see a very good chance to fight for the victory in Japan. For me, one of the most interesting things this weekend will be the weather. This weekend marks the sixth time I race in Japan and I have never driven a race there without rain.“
The race starts Sunday, 12th October at 04:00 hours CET and will be streamed online at the series official website (paid content). Eurosport broadcasts highlights of the race Sunday 10:30 hours CET.
