He comments: “I am proud to represent Denmark in the Formula 4. All my life I have seen different national teams in the red and white colours, so it feels great to have the opportunity to do it as a racing driver. I will do my best to bring the Danish flag to the top!”
In Karting Sprint Senior, 15-year-old Valdemar Aggerholm will be on the starting grid. Valdemar is a former Swedish champion in the OK Junior class and has taken a total of 75 podium positions in Danish and international karting over the years.

Reigning Porsche Esports Carrera Cup Denmark champion Mikkel Gade will take on the Fanatec Esports Cup. The official Danish Esports champion, who also races in the Skip Barber Formula Series in the USA, says: ‘I never imagined that esports would give me a place on the national team, so I was very surprised when I got the message. I am proud that DASU sees me as their best card for the FIA Motorsport Games and I hope to reward them with a good result in the Fanatec Esports Cup.”
