The latest club to join the 2009 SuperLeague Formula grid has revealed its true racing colours. Last week FC Midtjylland became the first Danish team to enter the Superleague elite – the club’s racing car, though, remained a guarded secret until last night’s (Monday 27 April) home Superliga match against Sonderjyske.

“We wanted our fans to be the first to see the car and it was well worth the wait,” explained FC Midtjylland President Bo Olesen. “The reception we got when the racer was uncovered just before kick-off was very positive. It’s obvious the passion our fans have for the football team will be just as enthusiastic towards our exciting new venture into Superleague motor racing. The launch was a great success.”

Adding to the historic occasion club sponsors, VIPs and officials all were invited to see the red and black liveried car after the match in a specially constructed ‘racing pit’ situated within the FC Midtjylland headquarters where the club held a dinner for 1.400 guests.  Before the car unveiling, the Managing Director of Superleague Formula Robin Webb, the Race-Manager of the club, Karl-Age Jensen and the driver Kasper Andersen were introduced to the guests in the VIP area.

“Kasper is a great ambassador for our championship and his presence certainly provided an extra dimension to what was already a great evening,” reported Superleague Formula Managing Director Robin Webb at the SAS Arena. “As our first Scandinavian club, FC Midtjylland is a very significant and welcome addition to the 2009 line-up.”

Later, and just before a cloud of black and red ballons discovered the car, Bo Olensen gave an exclusive FCM shirt with Superleague Formula to Robin Webb. Olensen cut the string that held the ballons and Kasper together with the FC Midtjylland goalkeeper Lasse Heinze removed the black cloth to show the car.

The single-seater was moved to the main building where the team and Kasper spent two hours signing autographs to the fans in a total racing pit atmosphere,  taking pictures after the match and sharing impressions with guests and journalists. “Goosebumps on my arms- actually all over, was my reaction standing there in the middle. What a welcome, unbelievable!!!”, said Andersen excited.

Now officially launched to the fans, the FC Midtjylland entry will make its race debut against a grid of similar cars representing many of the world’s top soccer clubs when the 2009 Superleague Formula season kicks off at Magny Cours in France on 27/28 June.
