Victor Conrad Jensen
Date of Birth: 27th of May 2001
Started Racing in: 2011
A young Victor got his first taste of Motorsport when riding ATVs and Junior Motocross bikes on the family farm in Denmark. His first racing experience came when he was 11 years old when he got behind the wheel of his first Go-Kart, and from that day forward the young Viking was hooked on racing…..
The following two years Victor raced Go-Karts for fun in both Denmark and Thailand while travelling with his father who has business interests in both countries. Even though he was racing for fun his father and other onlookers could see a real raw talent emerging, so the decision was made to enter Victor into the professional Karting leagues.
His racing career began in the Rotax Junior Class and after only a handful of races then name Jensen became a familiar sight in the top finishing positions. Victors birthday is May 27th which also happens to be right in the middle of the Karting season, this allowed him to race in the Rotax Senior Class with a more powerful 125cc Kart.
The jump in class made no difference as he soon echoed his previous success in the Junior ranks taking two Rotax Denmark Cup titles after a string of finishes in the top 3. Such was the commitment from his father for Victor to succeed who took on the roles within a Karting Team this included being the chief mechanic, Race engineer, mentor, dietician and teacher etc. the fledgling team of two traveled around Denmark in a converted van which also served as their home as they visited the many tracks throughout the country to contest in Race Cups and gain some experience.
When Victor was 15 he moved with his Father to live full time in the Thai capital of Bangkok, this move would prove permanent and would give the upcoming driver a base to push his racing career forward and follow his dream.
Although he loved the Go-Karts his thirst for speed would lead him to competing in the Toyota One Make Race and at the relatively young age of 15 he took control of a Toyota Vios and finished an incredible 3rd out of 28 other senior drivers. He was also the youngest driver to ever compete in the race.
He followed up his sensational debut with his first win at the Chang international Circuit in Buriram, again in the Vios for the One Make Series. When the series was over the young Viking found himself in 3rd class overall a fantastic achievement for someone so young.
In 2017 his father approached well known Danish driver and Team Owner of TR-Motorsport Thomas Raldorf about helping in Victor’s career. After a few initial meetings and testing sessions, it was agreed that Victor would join TR-Motorsport for the 2018 season racing the Honda Jazz in the Super Production Class of the Thailand Super Series.
