Going for podium

Thor-Christian Ebbesvik and Team Bruichladdich are hoping for a podium position in the Le Mans Series race in Hungary this weekend.

-We finished second in Portugal, and can finish on the podium at Hungaroring as well. With a good result we can also fight for a top three in the LMP2-standings this season, the 26 year old Norwegian says.

Thor-Christian Ebbesvik drives a Ginetta-Zytek with a 3,4 liter engine with 500 BHP. The weight is 825 kg, and the car is nearly as fast as the LMP1-cars.

-The trafic will be a challenge in Hungary. It's difficult to overtake, and we are 40 cars. A lot of them are GT-cars that I need to pass, so the qualifying will be important.

Ebbesvik shares his car with Karim Ojjeh and Tim Greaves.

Sundays race starts at 16.00 and finishes at 22.00. You can see the last thirty minutes live on Eurosport!
