Hartmann Honda Racing has a single entry at Jyllandsringen

Hartmann Honda Racing will only be fielding one car driven by Tomas Engstrom, when the Scandinavian Touring Car Cup kicks off at Jyllandsringen in Denmark this weekend. Earlier in the week Hartmann Honda Racing split from its driver for the last two seasons, James Thompson, and he engineer, Marco Calavolo.

"We are very sad and disappointed about, what has happened," team owner Hans Hartmann says.

"In the time running up to the first race in Denmark I was met by new demands from the engineer and his staff, which were not reasonable to honour. For the last week we have tried to establish a different technical set-up around James Thompson's car, but as James Thompson does not want to take part without his engineer, we had no other option but to stop the cooperation."

Due to the limited time it has not been possible for Hartmann Honda Racing to find another candidate who could drive for the remaining part of the season, and thus it will be concentrating its efforts this weekend around Tomas Engstrom.
