The new training camp Speed1Future, in March at Vojens Speedway Center, will be with Danish drivers, after cancellation from the German motor union DMSJ. It is Covid-19 that sets the stage for German participation this year.

The interesting aspects of a Danish-German talent collaboration will be resumed in 2023
- The responsibility for children and young people is even greater at this time than before the pandemic, and we as a youth association must live up to that. We also have a role model that we have to live up to. Attending this weekend at a time when most events are canceled or held online where possible is not the right signal, regrets the director of DMSJ René Schäfer.
- Even though the restrictions have been lifted in Denmark, we can well understand that the situation in Germany is different. We also feel the responsibility towards the young athletes and everyone else involved in such a project, says Jacob Olsen from Vojens Speedway Center.
The weekend of training at the national Danish speedway arena, garnished with sports psychology, dietary guidance, and technical inputs, is for young drivers.
- We will carry out the first Speed1Future in the planned weekend, 19-20 March, with Danish drivers, and then work towards 2023, where our German colleagues can hopefully participate, says Jacob Olsen.
