Super GT & 2L: Sæsonoptakt

I 2023-sæsonen skal kørerne i GMB Motorsports Junior Team alle ud at prøve kræfter med nye klasser, så vi har købt en hel flåde nye biler ind til formålet. Bilerne skal deltage i Super GT Danmark i de to klasser Super GT og Super 2L.

Vi har i GMB Motorsport en erklæret målsætning om at udvikle vores egne dygtige folk, så vi altid er sikret at have de bedste folk, både bag rattet og i pitten. Derfor har vi stor fokus på talentudvikling, hvor vi stræber efter at assistere unge kørere på rejsen fra spirende talenter til verdensstjerner inden for motorsporten.

Vores Junior Team er sat sammen af unge kørere, som vi ser så meget potentiale i, at vi forhåbentligt på sigt kan have dem bag rattet i en af vores biler i de store internationale klasser. Et af de væsentligste tiltag for at fremskynde den udvikling er at give talenterne mulighed for at køre race mod andre dygtige kørere, og derfor har vi fra 2023 valgt at stille kørerne til start i Super GT-serien, hvor de kommer til at dyste mod både erfarne og talentfulde danske racerkørere.

Forud for sæsonen har GMB Motorsport ansat en ny Team Manager for de danske klasser i form af Thue Henriksen, som allerede i sidste sæson spillede en stor rolle for vores Junior Team. Den nye mand i spidsen glæder sig til at se de unge kørere give den gas på landes baner:

– Jeg glæder mig til at se, hvordan de unge gutter tilpasser sig til de her biler, der bliver en helt ny og meget anderledes oplevelse for os alle sammen. Det er svært at spå om, hvordan det resultatmæssigt kommer til at gå, for drengene skal ud i konkurrence med en masse andre dygtige racerkørere fra øverste hylde herhjemme. Men det kommer til give alle en fantastisk mulighed for udvikling, både som kører bag rattet og som person uden for banen, udtaler Thue forud for sæsonens første løb på Padborg Park.

The Series
The Danish Super GT-series derives from the French Mitjet-series, where you compete in cars designed by Mitjet and built by Ligier. The series has existed in Denmark since 2015 and is divided in two classes: GT and 2L with two distinct championships. The two cars er visually almost identical with the difference only appearing under the hood, where the Super GT is equipped with a powerful V6 engine, that produces 330 horsepower, while the Super 2L is built with a slightly smaller 2-litre engince, that generates 230 horsepower to pull the car’s meager 750 kg.

During the 2023 season 15 cars will participate in the GT-class and 14 in the 2L-class.

Simon is GMB Motorsports sole representative in the Super GT-class, where the 16-year-old starlet will be competing with a field of far more experienced race drivers. During last season the youngster proved his huge potential by winning the Yokohama SuperCup-series by a mile and was even honored as Talent of the Year by DASU, the main organization of Danish Racing. In 2023 Simon will also be competing in the international Le Mans Cup across Europe, which means the young man has a busy season ahead of him.

16-year-old Simon Seiersen represented GMB Motorsport in last year’s Yokohama SuperCup finishing third overall and winning the overall rookie-championship. This year Simon will be taking on the Super 2L-class.
