Motorsportstalentet Nicklas Nielsen has come through the eye of the needle.

The 22-year-old dane has thus signed a contract with Ferrari for the coming years and thus become fabrikskører for the Italian large groups.

It is he, for Ferrari GT-motorsportsteam, Competizioni GT, where he is the first dane on an ended contract. Thus he takes a further step in the Ferrari-journey that started back in 2017, when he came to the Danish Ferrari team, Formula Racing, and in the just-ended season, he was this year’s rookie in the european Le Mans series GTE-class, which he won together with Alessandro Pier Guidi and Fabien Lavergne-

– It is so huge that I still do not even have grasped it. My journey has been relatively short, but incredibly effective. I drove my first GT-race for Formula Racing in the fall of 2017, and my first full season came the year after, where I secured the european Challenge championship and verdenstitlen.

– this year has been absolutely amazing with a championship in the European Le Mans Series plus a participation in the World Endurance Championship, and to be able to finish the year with one of the most sought after kørerkontrakter in the hand, is simply great.

– A big thank you to all those who have been around me along the way, and especially for the Formula Racing, which put me in a Challenge-racer two years ago to see what I could, says Nicklas Nielsen in a press release.
