What's up?

It's summer, and Thor-Christian Ebbesvik is busy planning his future as a racing driver.

-I'm working so hard to find a ride for the rest of the season. This has not been my year with a lot of trouble with both sponsors and teams. But I'm not giving up, Thor-Christian Ebbesvik says.

The 27 year old Norwegian drove the first race of this years Le Mans Series, but haven't race since. But he had a good test with the LMP1 car of Guess Racing at Spa, and now he hopes to drive some races this fall.

-Some races this year and a full season next year is the goal.

There have been some good news in the sportscar world lately too. In 2012 the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup will get World Championship status with races like Sebring, Le Mans, Petit Le Mans and more.

Porsche will also come back to the LMP1 class in 2014 and compete with Audi, Peugeot, Aston Martin and the others.
