David Thompson, better known as “SVEN” (a name that he’s carried for years based on his Scandinavian look) is no stranger to the race track or Radical Sportscars.
Sven founded the Nielsen racing team back in 2011 after spending years as race engineer for Marks Electrical. Nielsen Racing Team operated in the Radical series until 2017 where they stepped away from the Radical Paddock and into the LMP series of racing where they remain today.
Sven is no stranger to race-winning success and good team management.
Wanting to get a richer understanding of a driver’s experience (as well as having some fun!) Sven decided to compete in an SR1 when his existing LMP race commitments allowed.
Sven has joined us for a small handful of races so far, but we look forward to supporting him this season.
