Chevrolet Motorsport Danmark -Let’s get them!
Michael Outzen is a very popular driver
In motorsport as well as other sports, preparation has a great effect to the results. Chevrolet Motorsport Denmark is aware of this. That is why the foundation for the next season already is made.
The two cars driven by Henrik Lundgaard and Pontus Mörth are for sale, and the team has bought two of this year’s WTCC-Chevrolets, which will be delivered after the Macau race. Henrik Lundgaard recently extended his contract and now, Chevrolet Motorsport Denmark is ready to present the second driver for next year.
The girls adore him, the competitors fear him, and words like "perfectionist", "talent" and "charmer" fits him like a glove. Michael Outzen drives the second Chevrolet Lacetti in the Danish Touringcar Championship in 2008!
–Michael Outzen has the taste for victory
- I had no doubts, Michael Outzen explains, and he continues: This year, the Chevrolet team showed that they had the best cars, the best crew and an extraordinary teamwork when they are under heavy pressure. The dialogue with Kent Bo Steffensen was also very positive.
Despite the fact that the 25-year-old talent has never raced a front wheel driven race car before, he is certain that he can handle the challenge:
- Once upon a time, a wise man said "A real race driver can go fast in both front- and rear wheel driven cars", and I consider myself a real race driver, so that won’t be a problem! Michael laughs.
This helmet will be in a blue Chevrolet Lacetti next year
Team owner Michael Klostermann is satisfied with the driver line up: We are incredibly lucky with our 2008 line up. Henrik Lundgaard is a perfectionist who can communicate with the engineers and mechanics.
Michael Outzen is a young talent, who has proven himself to be an extremely competent driver both on a fast lap as well as in a battle for positions. I am confident that we are guaranteed a good starting point for an improved result in 2008.
By tradition the Silly Season starts late summer and goes on almost until the first race but maybe this year is even more productive for rumours since the number of teams and drivers for the next season is hard to figure out.
On that background Chevrolet Motorsport Denmark is very proud to announce that Henrik Lundgaard has signed the contract for 2008.
