Corona brakes heat Danish WORLD cup dreams

First, a travel ban and then coronaforbud.

the Trio Nicki Thiim, Marco Sorensen and Nicklas Nielsen are all run into unforeseen problems on the way to WORLD cup titles in their respective classes.

sports cars have such as Formula 1 made a sharp slowdown and has been running in the garage.

Friday's 1000 miles race at Sebring, Florida, is cancelled, while the 6 hour race at Spa in Belgium at the end of april is exposed.

1000 miles the race was a part of a 'doubleheader', together with the world's second largest sportsvognsløb, Sebring 12 hours, has been postponed to mid-november.

the Cancellation came in two ombæringer, because president Donald Trumps travel ban from Europe hit the WORLD over, but the UNITED states also hit by the corona and lots of cancellations and deferrals.

As the Spa only has announced that the race will be run later in the year, there is already speculation that the first will be after the summer sæsonfinale, there is a 24 hour race at Le Mans.

If this is the case, the Danish Aston Martin crew, Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen lie snug in the bend for yet another WORLD title in the prestigious GTE-Pro class. The danes have a lead of 26 points to the nearest persecutor, the Ferrari pair Alessandro Pier Guidi, Italy/James Calado, the united kingdom, further is a point ahead of the defending world champions, Michael Christensen and Kevin Estré, France.

the Opposite is the new Ferrari driver Nicklas Nielsen together with the French Emmanuel Collard and Francois Perrodo in the lead of the GTE Am class only two points ahead of the nearest competitor.

With the cancellation of the 1000 miles race at Sebring, it was not even a come back trip to Jan Magnussen in the new Corvette.

the Danish team in the WORLD cup series, High Class Racing, only ended up on the reserve list for this year's 24 hour race with a car number two, where Jan Magnussen was intended for the role as captain, looks like it at the time of writing only run to the most winning in the new Danish series, TCR, which stands for Denmark Touring Car Series.

Young Nicklas Nielsen is hit double of the weekend's cancellations in Sebring, where he would have been given a foretaste of what later will wait on the Le Mans.

in Addition to the 1000 miles race he should have run in the 12 hour race.

Le Mans has so far written eight Danish riders to the start.

in Addition to the inclusion of Nicklas Nielsen can class winner in the european Le Mans series, the Mikkel Jensen also get the debut in Le Mans in the LMP2-class of the Russian G-Drive-crew, where he will have the former Formula 1 driver, Jean-éric Vergne, France as one of two co-pilots.

Additionally, it is exciting to see who Christina Nielsen will run a Ferrari in the GTE Am class, as her co-pilots from the IMSA series in north America already to find on other cars. So far she is the only name on the car.
