Eventful days

This winter has been unusually eventful for the Norwegian racing driver Thor-Christian Ebbesvik.

-A lot of things are happening, and it will be some news soon, the 27 year old Norwegian says.

The start of the season is closing in, and Ebbesvik admits that the work to find the funding has been tough this winter.

-It's not easy to be a racing driver in Norway, where sports car racing aren't "on the radar"; but I've had a lot of positive meetings as well.

The driving last year was also extremely positive. Thor-Christian Ebbesvik was usually among the fastest drivers in the LMP2 class og the Le Mans Series, and Daily Sportscar called his debut race an "emerging sensation".

-I'm very satisfied with my driving, and thinks my future lies in sports cars. This weekend I will follow a lot of my competitors at Sebring, and maybe I can drive the 12 hour race myself one day.
