Allan Simonsen

The Automobile Club de l’Ouest brings word of a foundation which has been set up by the Danish Automobile Sports Union in honour of Allan Simonsen, who was killed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans last month:

A fund was established on the 26th of June following the many expressions of sympathy from fans of motor sport in Denmark and around the world. Donations can be made on the following account number in the Danish bank, Jyske Bank A/S: IBAN DK1350780001117416, SWIFT (BIC-address): JYBADKKK. Donations can be made until 31 December 2013. DASU will hand over the donated amounts to Allan Simonsen’s fiancée Carina Lundbye Hansen at a ceremony in Copenhagen held on 22 January 2014.

The DASU added: “It is with great honor that DASU supports the memory of Allan Simonsen. We have closely followed his career all the way back from the karting years and we are convinced that Allan had the talent to even greater successes.”

I’m saddened to read this tragedy. I notice on his helmet that Cooper’s has sponsored him. Next time I have myself a Cooper’s Pale Ale I’ll be paying my respects.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. As you know he did a lot of racing in Australia, so I expect that helmet is from one of his V8SC drives, or perhaps the Bathurst 12 Hour.

Coopers did sponsor a bright green Ferrari 575 GT that he raced in Australia and overseas in what became the GT3 category overseas back in the mid 2000s, it might not necessarily be from an Australian drive.
