Young Driver AMR confirms rapid driver trio for 2016 FIA WEC

Marco Sørensen, Nicki Thiim and Darren Turner team up for Young Driver AMR

19.02.2016 - GTE

„Danish Dynamite“ starts stronger then ever before in the FIA World Endurance Championship 2016 (FIA WEC). For its fourth season in the World Championship, Young Driver AMR attacks with its most competitive driver line up so far. The rapid Danes Marco Sørensen und Nicki Thiim will form a strong Danish combination in the #95 Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage GTE and are joined in all nine rounds of the 2016 FIA WEC by Darren Turner. For the second consecutive season, the Aston Martin Racing entered Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage GTE will compete in the GTE Pro-class, the premier class in international GT racing.
„Marco and Nicki are a very serious combination and with the addition of Darren, without any doubt one of the most competitive driver combinations in the FIA WEC“, says Young Driver AMR´s Jan Struve. „Marco and Nicki are appointed official Aston Martin works drivers this year and after their strong performances in the past, I’m really happy for them. Since Nicki joined our team, he was immediately one of the quickest GT drivers in the championship and Marco made a sensational debut in 2015, when he was one of the quickest drivers in class all season long. With a new manufacturer joining the championship this year, the competition in the GT class will be harder then ever before and for us it was a logical choice to combine these drivers. Nicki will be racing for us full season in the FIA WEC for the first time and I can’t think of a better combination then him sharing the car with Marco“.
Young Driver AMR will take on the world’s best GT teams and drivers with an upgraded version of the #95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE, developed to new technical regulations.
Marco Sørensen: “I’m really looking forward to the start of the season. Aston Martin did a great job with the upgraded Vantage GTE and with new competition joining our class, it will be an exciting season. The fight this season will be very close and I hope we can come out on top, especially at Le Mans, which is the most important race of the season. I’m really happy that Jan Struve of Young Driver put all this in place and makes this possible. To drive with Nicki and Darren all season is great, we really push ourselves forward.”
Nicki Thiim: “I’m happy to drive in the FIA WEC full season and of course, to be appointed as official Aston Martin driver. For me, this is a great chance and a good step forward. It’s a new challenge and for any GT driver, the FIA WEC is the place to be. The series is getting stronger and stronger each year and this season, I expect our GT class to be the most competitive and interesting class of this championship.”
Young Driver AMR first competed in the FIA WEC in 2013. In 2014, Young Driver AMR won the GTE Am class of the World Championship and took a class win at the 24 hours of Le Mans. At the beginning of the 2015 season, the team moved up to the GTE Pro class. Young Driver AMR is a partner team of Aston Martin Racing since 2010.
The 2016 FIA WEC season starts at April 17th in Silverstone, United Kingdom. The 24h hours of Le Mans will take place from 17 to 18 June in Le Mans/France. The 2016 season consists of nine races, one more then in previous years with the addition of a round in Mexico City.
