Steffen Madsen (real-life and simracing)


If I could choose a daily driver:
Well, I'm a bit wild about the Alfa Romeo 166 3.0 24V with Sportronic and everything in electric gadgets

If my lottery ticket came out: I would buy a Ferrari - don't know which model though. I could also develop a weakness for an Aston Martin DB9

The best drive: I have driven a lot of awsome cars, but the best must be a Lamborghini Diablo

All-time classic: Well, that's a tough question! There are so many that I refuse to answer!

Place(s) I would like to drive: All the way to McDonald's and back again!

Best car experience: I can list some of the cars that I have driven .. : Ferraris; 246 dino, 308 in different versions, 365 V12, 400 V12, 348TS, different Mondials, 355, Testarossa and others; Maseratis; 2.22 racing, different 4.24s, Ghibli, Shamal, different Quattroportes, Indy 4.7 and 4.9, Merak, Bora and others; Porsche; different versions of the 911, 944, 928, GT3; Lotus; Elan, Esprit, Seven; Jaguar; E-types, XJ6, XJ12, XJS, S-type V8, XK120, XK140 and others; Lamborghini; Diablo, Islero, and others; Aston Martin; DB5 and others; Alfa Romeo; well almost everything except the very old types. This was a pick of the cars I've been so lucky to try out - and in some cases give a good beating !! :-)

Right now I am looking forward to: ... One of the things I can hardly wait for is summer and my Beach Buggy!!

The best GPL-track: Spa is awsome ... but in general I like all tracks, when you get it right!

GPL is cool because: When I find the balance, and all the good vibes this "game" creates ;-)

We were there from the start

Scuderia Into The Red showed up at the 1967 Italian Grand Prix with the Fiat 128 Coupe of Steffen Madsen.

He diced with the rest of the elite over some 20 laps and was able to hold the competition behind the Fiat until he got stuck in the gravel at Parabolica when he almost collided with John Surtees in the Honda.

When the yellow car re-entered the race it was discovered that the engine had swallowed some sand at the car was retired.

Another race lost. But then again -
almost won as well ...
