Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Danish racing driver Caspar Elgaard today confirmed that he will he hanging up his race suit, boots and helmet at the end of this month as he steps back from competitive racing in favour of concentrating on his team managerial position at Massive Motorsport.

With an international racing career that dates back to beyond 2001 he has competed at the highest level including eight visits to the 24Hour of Le Mans between 2001 and 2011, where in 2009 he alongside Kristian Poulsen and Emmanuel Collard won the LMP2 class in a Team Essex Porsche RS Spyder.

Since then he has (and up till now still was) actively competing in both his domestic Danish Thundersport Championship and the International Endurance Series in cars prepared by his own Massive Motorsport team.

"It was a big decision, but also the right for myself and Massive Motorsport" he says in his announcement posted on the teams Facebook page.

He will see out his last race in the series that he has participated in over for the last thirteen years with commanding effect - the DTC on the 25th September. That position has been further reinforced by the withdrawal of the Massive Motorsport V12 Vantage GT3 from the International Endurance Series final event at Brno in mid October.
