Pattaya based TR Motorsport has a proud history of nurturing young driving talent and has developed the careers of several drivers over the years helping them to realise their motorsport dreams, not only in Thailand but also throughout the world. Recent success stories from the TR Motorsport development program are Sandy Stuvik and Jack Lemvard, who have both now become professional racing drivers.
The latest addition to the TRM family is Danish protégé Victor Conrad Spliid Jensen, a 16-year-old who has already proven himself on the track in both karts & cars, being well ahead of other drivers in the same age bracket and showing a real thirst to learn.
TRM had been studying Victor’s progress throughout 2017 and it soon became apparent that the young Dane had real potential, and under the guidance of TRM racing coach Jack Lemvard he continued to improve.
The 2018 season promises to be a very demanding one for Victor, as he will be entered in several championships. He will drive in the ‘ALTIS’ Class of the Toyota One Make Race Series and Class-C of the Super Production Championship in the Thailand Super Series.
Victor will also be racing in the 3K Toyo Championship and the Super Turbo Series; both these Championships will be used as practice, allowing him to hone his skills further. If all this wasn’t enough, he will also be competing in the DD2 Karting Championship, racing Shifter Karts. All these events will play a major role in his development.
“I am very happy to have the chance of working with Thomas Raldorf and TR Motorsport,” said Victor. “I was impressed to see how they work with data analysis to help set up the car and develop their drivers. They have built a new car for me that I will use for the Super Production Class of the Thailand Super Series. I have already completed over 200 laps around Bira Circuit in Pattaya to get a feel for the car and by the end of the first day my lap times were already competitive, so I know this is the best way forward for me regarding my career.”
The program will see Victor racing a minimum of 20 weekends throughout 2018, with the potential for more races being added to the calendar as the year progresses.
