World News – GB – Emotional Thiim, praises the « magical » world title victory


. .

Nikki Tim responded to winning the GTE Pro Drivers World Championship in 8 hours from Bahrain on Saturday, saying it was like’ living in a dream ‘.

Tim and his assistant Marco Sorensen finished fifth in GTE Pro in Bahrain on Saturday, but with title competitor Maxime Martin only one place in fourth place, it was enough for the Danish duo to clinch their second title after winning their first one in 2016..

After the race, Tim made it clear how important winning the title was to him personally after the 2020 Roller Coaster.

“It sounds good, right?” He said “It’s magic, I don’t know where to start”. Not only on the field, but also off the field. With this thing happening all over the world it’s insane, but standing here, becoming a dad for the first time in 2020 and now here, world champion again..

“Very happy for the team, the crew of the 95, the whole crew basically won Le Mans, with everything. I’m so happy now, feelings are everywhere now.

“This is what you dreamed of when you were a little kid, and now I stand here as a world champ. We all deserve it and I’m happy and proud to be a part of this story.

Sorensen and Thiim were the beaten duo throughout the season, with more race wins than any other pair in GTE Pro. The duo scored their first win of the season at Fuji in October 2019, followed by wins in Bahrain and Austin.

In addition, the podium at six hours at Spa Francorchamps and 24 hours in Le Mans was enough to give them a decisive advantage before the last tour in Bahrain..

“What can I say? It’s magic, you stand here with your best friends as a hero of the world, it’s just a dream,” Tim continues.. “What can I say? We have been very consistent this year and are putting it in place.

« You compete against the best in the field, and proud to compete against brands like Porsche and Ferrari, and again, standing here with my best friends to celebrate the World Championship is something you’ll sit down and laugh at when you’re 80 years old. ».
