Porsche RS Spyder 9R6 709

Team Essex, a Danish team owned by Peter Halvorsen, provides the next in our series of Porsche RS Spyder reviews – this time we have chassis 9R6-709.  Team Essex had a history of running in the Danish Touring Car championship with periodic entries in prototype sportscar running.  For the 2008 season, Essex joined other privateer teams like Van Merksteijn and Horag/Lienhard to purchase and campaign Porsche RS Spyders.

The new Team Essex car was unveiled in December 2007 in blue livery.  It ran in 2008 in the blue color before changing to green in 2009 (more on that later).

Dane John Nielsen took his LeMans experience to join the squad to join Caspar Elgaard.  Nielsen had significant and successful prototype experience, notably with the Jaguar factory prototype teams and the West McLaren F1-GTR in the FIA-GT series.  Nielsen shared a few prototypes with Caspar Elgaard over the years.  Elgaard made his name as the five time champion of the Danish Touring Car Championship, but also ran at LeMans in various cars for several years with a third in class in 2007 in an Aston Martin with Larbe.
