Teenager gets two stints for Buriram challenge in the LMP2 category
Buriram, Thailand, Sunday, 23 February 2020 – After getting reacquainted with the Chang Buriram International Circuit in Thailand with the practice and qualifying sessions on Saturday, Singapore’s Danial Nielsen Frost made his second race appearance at the Asian Le Mans Series (ALMS) on Sunday when he took on the responsibility as the starting driver for the ALMS’ season finale 4Hours of Buriram race.
The youngster drove two stints in the Inter Europol Competition team’s #33 LMP2 car and had an impressive outing when he managed to climb up the field at the start. After gaining a couple of positions on track, Frost was able to maintain a consistent pace to keep up with the experienced endurance racing specialists in the leading cars.
After driving for nearly 90 minutes for his double shift, Frost would later hand over the reigns of the #33 car to his fellow teammates (John Corbett and Nathan Kumar) for the remainder of the 4-hour long race. The team’s #33 car would eventually finish the race in sixth position overall.
“It was an incredibly intense race for me, physically with the tough conditions thanks to the heat! Overall though, I am quite happy with the job I did during my stint as I gave it my all. I was able to make a couple of passes and remain consistent throughout my stint.”
“After two rounds, I can say that I had a really good time! It was fun being in a different type of racing car than what I am used to. The car has a different and complex system of aerodynamics compared to the single-seater racecars I am used to driver. I am grateful for this valuable experience, as it is another type of racing experience for me. I would like to thank the Inter Europol Competition team, my fellow co-drivers, the engineers and mechanics for everything they have done to help me this past two weekends. In particular, I have to thank both my parents for their unconditional support throughout.”

With this experience under his belt, Frost now heads back to the United States of America and to single-seater racing as the Singaporean prepares for the 2020 Indy Lights season with Andretti Autosport this March.
