Now a few days after the Le Mans stage of the Tour de France de l’Egalité between men and women, set in the theme of women in motorsport, good news has been announced: Christina Nielsen will take the start at this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans with a Porsche 911 RSR in the LMGTE Am class.
The Danish driver will be participating in her third 24 Hours of Le Mans. After two editions with Ferrari, she will now take the wheel of a Porsche 911 RSR, joining the driver line-up for the #90 fielded by the Italian team Ebimotors. The outfit won the GT class in the Michelin Le Mans Cup last year, earning an automatic invitation to the 24 Hours.
Christina Nielsen, two-time champion in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship in GTD (2016 and 2017), will join forces with a driver who is certainly no stranger to Le Mans, Fabio Babini. He has taken part in the legendary endurance race seven times, winning the GT class in 2001 (Seikel Motorsport's Porsche 911 GT3-RSR with Gabrio Rosa and Luca Drudi). The third driver has yet to be announced.
