Daytona 24hrs – Danish Participation

I live in Denmark, and mostly race with and against Danish drivers. Therefore I will be keeping a keen eye out for Danish teams, or teams with Danish participation. I have tried to make a list of the ones that i know will participate, but if I have missed out on a few, please let me know, and I will add them to the list!

The list is only sorted in the sequence that i got replies from the teams with info about themselves, so no particular order other than how fast they happened to reply!

This list is currently being updated with more info, logos, images, links etc as I receive them from the participants

SiCo Simracing Cooperative

Our own car, is of course the one that I will personally be spending the most time on. This might be one of the best prepared for endurance races that i have ever joined, mainly due to a 12 hours race on the same track, the week before! Although I won’t stream this on my stream, the whole race will be streamed from Benjamin Langsteds twitch. We are 4 Danish drivers, who will run the SiCo Corvette GTE.

  • Benjamin Langsted
  • Peter Mortensen
  • William Lindahl
  • Stefanos Jensen

SiCo is as such not a team but more a group of drivers trying to make each other better by contributing with what we’re good at. Even teams can be part of SICO, as long as they are willing to contribute with whatever they enjoy doing. You can join the discord here and maybe get a new logo, a custom livery, a new Twitch overlay or a promo video if you can help others with what you like doing


Hyperion Racing

Hyperion Racing will sign up with 3 cars. They will run 2 LMP2 cars, and one BMW M4 GT3. Its their GT3 that I will be particularly keeping an eye on, because of their two Danish drivers, Daniel Lindholdt and Nikolaj Lanman. You will be able to follow them on these streams:

Team Slowpace

Team Slow pace are friends! They have been improving their racing since they started, and although they are a small team, they are very active, dedicated and committed!

I have helped them with a logo, as well as a car livery for this race that turned out pretty nice!

I am happy to know these guys who most likelly will be streaming the whole race through Jonas’ stream. They will race the Porsche GTE with 3 drivers

Northside Sim Racing

Northside Sim Racing is one of the largest and most welcoming Danish teams. They will run 5 cars for this Daytona 24Hrs race.

They have long been a team that welcomes everyone but they have recently vamped up their expectations for the team, by producing a PRO branch that they hope will be among the top 5 sim racing teams in Denmark.

  • NSR Yellow: Kirkelund & Simon & Thomas (GTE)

Although it’s always interesting to watch the results that NSR achieve, I will personally be keeping a close eye on NSR Red that features the Danish star-streamer Kurt Haue Jensen.

  • Chris Bouchard – USA

Mountain Trout Racing Concerns

Although they are a new team, They alreay are 2020 Majors Series World 600 winners and Back-to-back Club Scandinavia Oval League Champions.

The reason why I’l be keeping an eye on them is their driver Louie Stockfleth who will join them in a GTE Ferrari 488 efford. Only 3 days before race, his previous team had to bail out, so he was lucky to find a seat with Fors eSports, for this race.

This is one of the good things to come out of the Covid-19 period. Send-IT was formed during the lockdown, when a few drivers who decided they wanted to try the 24hrs Le Mans race. Sine then they have grown larger and more serious.
