Biography

If you can think of a motorsport series, then Tom Kristensen has probably tried his hand at it - except, funnily enough, Formula One. The Danish star is most well known for his Le Mans exploits, as he currently holds the record as the most successful driver in the endurance event. He's also raced in both International and Japanese F3000 championships, as well as British and German Touring Cars.

Tom's experience of F1 is limited, he has tested for Tyrrell and for tyre suppliers Michelin, but has not raced in the series. He has, however, won the 24 Hours of Le Mans eight times.
