Danish sports car ace Christina Nielsen has been immortalized in Lego!
Scuderia Corsa and LEGO are partnering to bring the No.63Ferrari 488 GT3 that won the 2015, 2016 and 2017 IMSA Sports Car Championship into LEGO bricks. The set includes a mini racing driver in the likeness of two-time champion Christina Nielsen that can be placed inside the car through the removable windshield, a trophy and authentic design details including racing colors and race-graphic stickers.
When asked for comment, the 26-year-old racer commented ““Havde aldrig troet, jeg skulle sige det her … MEN JEG ER NU EN LEGO-FIGUR!!! Den udkommer om et par uger. AARRHHHHH!” which unfortunately is in Danish and therefore cannot be understood by 99.9% of the known universe.
The irony for Nielsen is that after winning back to back championships in her Ferrari, she was dropped by Scuderia Corsa for 2018, making the immortalization in Lego a bittersweet moment for the Danish driver.
