2 more Ferrari races for Jensen

Mikkel Jensen will do to more Ferrari races during the 2021 season.

The Dane will be racing for the Japanese team, which he has raced for in the Asian Le Mans Series in the past.

Jensen will be competing in the 8 Hours of Portimao FIA World Endurance Championship race, and the big highlight of the year – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Racing a GTE car will be a first for Jensen, having raced both BMW and Ferrari GT3 cars in the past. The Ferrari 488 GTE has much more aerodynamic, but no ABS brakes.

This will be the third 24 Hours of Le Mans for the Car Guy team. They qualified for the 2019 edition by winning the 2018/19 Asian Le Mans Series. They replaced the other Japanese team, MR Racing, who chose to pull out due to the COVID-19 situation. But the 2020 race was run under the MR Racing banner, but with the car painted in the yellow Car Guy livery.

Jensen will be sharing the car with Scott Andrews and team owner Takeshi Kimura. Kimura has done the race twice before. Jensen made his Le Mans debut in 2020, racing for G-Drive Racing in LMP2, while Andrews will have his debut in the 2021 edition. Andrews has a broad knowledge of LMP3 and GT racing, all over the world.

Car Guy has made a deal with Kessel Racing, who will run the car for the two races, just like they did in the Asian Le Mans Series 2020/21. They previously worked together with AF Corse. Kessel Racing has a big knowledge of running both GT3 and GTE cars.

The 8 Hours of Portimao will run on 13 June, which will be the FIA WEC race debut for Mikkel Jensen. He will be doing the full season in 2021 for Peugeot Sport, being named one of the drivers in their new Hypercar programme.
