Michael Christensen may not yet be a household name among U.S. sports car fans, but the 23-year-old Dane fully intends on changing that this season with a full-time TUDOR United SportsCar Championship ride for Porsche North America. If Friday’s qualifying for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida is any indication, he’s not wasting any time, setting the fastest time in his No. 912 Porsche 911 RSR with a lap of one minute, 58.933 seconds (113.207 mph) in the always-competitive GT Le Mans (GTLM) class.
Saturday’s race serves as both the second round of the TUDOR Championship and the Tequila Patrón North American Endurance Cup. The event begins at 10:15 a.m. ET. Live FOX Sports 1 coverage runs from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., with the remainder of the event streamed live on www.imsa.com.
It was Christensen’s first qualifying attempt as a Porsche factory driver after being named to the manufacturer’s prestigious lineup in November.
