Danish ace Niels-Kristian Iversen admitted “I have the luxury of going out and enjoying” his racing as the SGP 2020 star heads to his homeland for the Danish SGP sponsored by ECCO tonight.

The Esbjerg-born ace lines up in Vojens a week after finishing fourth at the AZTORIN German SGP in Teterow last Saturday.

To make one step up and reach the podium would be great. Vojens is my home Grand Prix and I’m looking forward to it.

Niels-Kristian Iversen

His second final appearance of 2019 moved Iversen up to ninth place in the World Championship – four points off Artem Laguta in eighth.

And NKI is keen to maintain that momentum in front of his home fans. He said: “Three more double figure hauls would be great. I don’t have any pressure on myself and I have the luxury of going out and enjoying it.

“To make one step up and reach the podium would be great. Vojens is my home Grand Prix and I’m looking forward to it.

“The atmosphere was good in Teterow, plenty of Danes came out to support me – and there will be more this time.”

Iversen was delighted with a 13-point tally in Teterow – his best performance since scoring 14 at the opening round in Warsaw.

He said: “It was a good haul of points for me and the racing was good. It’s just a shame I finished last in the final. It’s always very disappointing when that happens. But my performance was good, and I should be happy. It’s bitter-sweet for me.

“I’m happy because of my points haul, and the fact that things have been a struggle for me since Warsaw. I felt good on the bike and was on the pace all night, so I shouldn’t complain.”
