We learned this morning of the passing of 26 year-old Dane Christian Bakkerud stemming from a car crash on Saturday evening in Wimbledon, UK.
His last major start came at the 2010 24 Hours of Le Mans with Privateer Team Kolles Audi racing the R10 TDI. Bakkerud had gotten his start with Audi the previous year in DTM before joining the Kolles team.
He had build up his racing career starting in Formula BMW, British Formula 3 and GP2 between 2002-2008.
He was a podium finisher in Formula BMW in Germany and the UK, and his career highlight was a British F3 win for Carlin at Mugello in 2006.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Family & Friends on this tragic occasion.
