LM Racing confirm Louise Frost for 2021 season

LM Racing has confirmed that a deal has been struck that will see Louise Frost join the team for the 2021 TCR Denmark season.

The team had revealed prior to Christmas that it was working to try and get Frost into one of the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR cars that it fielded in the series last year – although it was dependent on funding being sourced.

Now however, the deal for the 26-year-old to join the team has been confirmed and she will line-up alongside Jan Magnussen and Nicolai Sylvest, both of whom will run in new Cupra León Competicións, in what it currently a three-car team.

“I am extremely happy to have had the opportunity to compete in what I would describe as the Danish royal class in motorsport,” she said. “Above all, I look forward to joining a large team of professional engineers and people who can help me take a new step in my racing career.

“LM Racing has clear ambitions to be the best, and with two such strong drivers as Jan Magnussen and Nicolai Sylvest on the team, there are almost no limits to what I can draw on in terms of resources.

“In terms of ambition, I imagine that 2021 will be a year of development. I’m up against the elite and just need to learn as much as possible. Motorsport, like everything else, is still characterizsd by the COVID-19 situation, and the season starts late this year, but that only means that I have even more time to prepare for the car in the simulator.”

Team boss Lars Mogensen was pleased to welcome Frost onboard and said plans were still being worked on to ensure a four-car programme this season using the other VW that was raced last year.

“It is really good news that Louise Frost will start in 2021,” he said. “The championship will have another ambitious driver on the track, and we will get an extra resource in the fight to defend the team championship in the new season.

“We have long wanted to expand the team with more drivers to utilise our capacity and create synergy on the team. That is why we are still in dialogue with others, and our goal is still to start with four drivers for the season opener.”
