SEBRING, Fla. – PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports has added Anders Fjordbach to the team’s LMP2 program for the second race of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season at Sebring Int’l Raceway.
Fjordbach joins PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports with extensive endurance racing experience. The Denmark native has won two 24 Hours of Dubai titles and finished on the podium two additional times.
He has raced in seven other 24-hour races, including the 24 Hours of Spa and Nürburgring. The 28-year-old will be a part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship for the first time after competing in the Blancpain GT Endurance Series, Asian Le Mans Series and European Le Mans Series.
Fjordbach will pilot the No. 52 ORECA 07 LMP2 alongside teammates drivers Matt McMurry and Gabriel Aubry for the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring.
“Sebring is one of the classics and one of the races I have watched for many years while racing in Europe and Asia,” said Fjordbach. “I am so happy to make my American racing debut at Sebring with PR1/Mathiasen Motorsports.
I believe we have a strong package and we can reach for the top step Saturday evening. I must thank Chris McMurry, my teammate in Asian Le Mans for giving me this chance. I can’t wait to be in Florida.”
