In collaboration with the Danish Automobile Sports Union (DASU) CHGP was oonce again host for the big official Danish Le Mans press conference where seven of the eight Danish Le Mans drivers were present.
The 2016 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – the world’s largest motor race – is again this year attended by a record number of Danish riders. For this occasion, CHGP and DASU invited to a press conference with everyone, except one, of the profiles who will be fighting for Denmark’s victory in the 84th edition of the French classic.
As before, the location for this year’s Le Mans meeting is not accidental. Bellahøj will also this year be the frame for the motor festival Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix, which is held on the weekend of July 30th – 31st, and where many of the Danish Le Mans profiles are on the list as drivers.
The following drivers were present at the press conference:
Jan Magnussen (CORVETTE RACING, CORVETTE C7.R, GTE PRO)
Michael Christensen (DEMPSEY PROTON RACING, PORSCHE 911 RSR, GTE PRO)
Nicki Thiim (ASTON MARTIN RACING, ASTON MARTIN V8, GTE PRO)
Marco Sørensen (ASTON MARTIN RACING, ASTON MARTIN V8, GTE PRO)

Christina Nielsen (FORMULA RACING, FERRARI 458 GT2, GTE AM)
Johnny Laursen (FORMULA RACING, FERRARI 458 GT2, GTE AM)
The press conference was opened by the Chairman of the Danish Automobile Sports Union, Bent Mikkelsen. The drivers were subsequently interviewed by commentator and Le Mans enthusiast Mads Christensen, who with both humor and seriousness had outlined a great insight into the drivers’ thoughts toward the great challenge at Le Mans.
