Sorenson to join GMB Motorsport AMR team at Le Mans and Thiim for the ELMS

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

The three-time defending FIA World Endurance GT Champion and Aston Martin Racing works driver Marco Sørensen, who won Le Mans for the first time last year, will be joining GMB Motorsport in the pursuit of ultimate success in this summer’s edition of the legendary 24 hour race.

GMB Motorsport has secured a massive enforcement ahead of this summer’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, where the team will be participating for the very first time. The winner from last year’s GTE Am class, Danish Marco Sørensen, will be defending his victory wearing a GMB driving suit. The three-times World Champion and Aston Martin Racing Factory Driver will be sharing the seat of our brand-new Aston Martin Vantage GTE with Gustav Birch and Jens Reno Møller, when this year’s 24H Le Mans commences.

This of course creates a lot of excitement for the head of sporting at GMB Motorsport, Henrik Lundgaard. Henrik is looking forward to a successful collaboration between GMB and the driver from Aston Martin Racing:

– Marco is one the fastest Aston Martin drivers and has shown his class in endurance racing for years through victories in some of the grandest 24-hour races and of course three world titles. When the possibility of a collaboration arose, we did not hesitate for a second. It’s not every day you get the opportunity to make an agreement with a defending Le Mans-champion. We are looking forward to seeing,what this alliance can amount to at the race this summer. We are very excited.

The agreement with Aston Martin Racing and Marco Sørensen only covers this one race, which means it will be a while before you see Marco in a red GMB-race car. The 2023 version of Le Mans will be raced between the 10th and the 11th of June.

Having already helped the team set up their new car, todays news also sees Nikki Thiim joining the team for their European Le Mans Series adventures alongside both Birch and Moller.
