Nicki Thiim is a new driver at GMB Motorsport, once the team enters the European Le Mans Series 2023.
The Danish team has grabbed the Aston Martin works driver for their brand new Aston Martin Vantage GTE car, which will compete in both the ELMS and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which they won an entry for, thanks to their Michelin Le Mans Cup Championship win in 2022.
Thiim will however only be competing for the team at the ELMS races, since he already has an FIA WEC commitment with Northwest AMR #98 at Le Mans, which is part of the FIA WEC. The Le Mans replacement driver for GMB Motorsport hasn’t been announced yet.
Thiim will be sharing the car with Gustav Birch and Jens Møller, who was part of the Michelin Le Mans Cup with a Honda NSX GT3 in 2022. That combination results in a Platinum, Silver and Bronze-ranked driver lineup.
But that leaves no space for the Championship-winning Kasper H. Jensen. He will instead be focusing on the TCR Denmark Championship for the team.
The European Le Mans Series starts on 23 April 2023, with several days of testing leading into that weekend at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
