Exiting

The next race taking place the upcoming weekend at Ring Djursland is going to be thrilling to Henrik Lundgaard and Michael Outzen. For Henrik the track is an absolute favourite where he feels comfortable. The hilly and twisted layout is challenging to the drivers.

- I wish I had had the opportunity to drive it as a special stage in my rally days it simply has everything you could wish for.

Michael Outzen too is familiar with the track from previous years but it will be his first race in FWD on the circuit. His first attempts took place last Saturday when most teams took the opportunity to test setups since the last race for DTC on Djursland was two years ago.

- Getting dragged around and not pushed was another experience but after a few laps to get tires into working conditions and make sure that the surface was clean my lap times came down close to Henriks.

The day went on without any problems and focused on final adjustments to setups. Both drivers hope that the difference between FWD and RWD will be less significant on this track and the lap times seems to confirm it. During all four test runs Henrik was the fastest driver with Michael only fractions of a second behind. It seems as everything is ready for the race but over the last couple of days the weather forecast has been unpredictable.

- We have only had one race in rain with the Lacetti and that was Padborg Park last year. When we were at Ring Djursland last time it was raining cats and dogs and we could have been using dinghys for the race, tells Kent Bo Steffensen from Perfection Racing.
