21 cars entered for Jyllandsringen TCR Denmark season opener
21 cars have been entered for the 2023 TCR Denmark series season opener at Jyllandsringen this weekend, an increase by two cars compared to last year.
Among the notable entries is the four-car squad of Swedish team Auto Lounge Racing which has recruited former F1 driver Jan Magnussen who returns after a one-year absence from the series.
Reigning triple champion Kasper Jensen continues with GMB Motorsport alongside team-mate Gustav Birch in a pair of Honda Civic Type R TCR FK7s.
JAS Motorsport Driver Development Programme Philip Lindberg will drive a new generation Honda Civic Type R FL5 for PL Racing, having raced a Hyundai last year to finish eighth overall.
Last year’s runner-up Mike Halder is back with Swedish outfit TPR Motorsport which will run a total of four cars in 2023.
Halder will race an Audi alongside Anton Bergström while sibling Michelle Halder will race a Honda (FK7) with Kevin Brandsborg.
Didrik Esbjug is another entry from the now defunct TCR Scandinavia championship who has joined TCR Denmark and the Norwegian driver will continue racing a Honda for his family team Esbjug Motorsport.
The season opener starts with qualifying at 14:43 CEST on Saturday, followed by three races on Sunday at 11:45, 14:35 and 15:25.
