Jan Magnussen claims Ring Djursland pole position

Former F1 driver Jan Magnussen claimed pole position for the TCR Denmark series races at Ring Djursland.

The LM Racing driver lapped the short Danish circuit in 50.240 and was 0.186 seconds faster than Hyundai driver Martin Andersen.

Insight Racing’s Jacob Mathiassen was third fastest behind the wheel of his Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, three tenths from Magnussen’s time.

Mathiassen was closely followed by Magnussen’s team-mate Nicolai Sylvest, with just four thousands of a second separating the two.

Michael Markussen was fifth fastest with his Peugeot 308TCR ahead of points leader Kasper H. Jensen. The duo was four and five tenths of a second from pole respectively.

TPR Motorsport driver Casper Elgaard was seventh fastest but received a four-place grid penalty for missing the drivers’ briefing.

The first race of the weekend starts at 15:30 CEST.
