High Class Racing has announced the final pieces of their Le Mans puzzle.
The Danish team will enter two cars for the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2021, with their extra entry having Anders Fjordbach, plus Kevin and Jan Magnussen as the drivers. That has been a long time Magnussen family goal, plus a big dream for many of their fans.
The team does, however, still have their regular FIA World Endurance Championship car #20 in the race. Dennis Andersen will be the only full season driver remaining in that one. But he will be joined by two very capable drivers.
Marco Sørensen will be the second Dane in #20, which will be his LMP2 debut. The Dane has previously been a part of the Aston Martin Racing team in the GTE Pro category, where he won the title in both 2016 and 2019/20. He was a test driver for the Lotus Formula 1 Team from Enstone, and race-winning driver in the Renault World Series prior to that. But it will be something new for him to race in LMP2 material. He has primarily been doing GT3 racing this year for AMR, so it will go quite a bit faster for him than until now in 2021.
Third and final driver on the car will be Ricky Taylor. The American has a lot of prototype experience, having raced both Daytona Prototypes, and now the DPi cars in the IMSA series in the USA. He is the defending IMSA Champion in the DPi category, and has 6 previous Le Mans starts. Two of those times has been onboard a Corvette GTE car, while the other times have been onboard LMP2 cars.
High Class Racing will race this weekend at the FIA World Endurance Championship round at Monza in Italy. That is the final race preparation for the team, where Magnussen, Fjordbach and Andersen will share car #20, as they have done twice this year – at Spa Francorchamps and Portimao.
