Nicki Thiim (born 17 April 1989 in Sønderborg, Denmark) is a professional Danish racecar driver currently racing for Aston Martin Racing as a factory driver in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

After competing in karting, Thiim won the 2006 Danish Formula Ford Championship. In 2007 he switched to touring car racing, where he finished 5th in the Seat León Supercopa Germany and raced a BMW 3 Series in the Danish Touring Car Championship.[1] The driver won the 2008 Seat León Supercopa Germany with 8 wins in 16 races.

Thiim advanced to the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany in 2009, finishing 5th. He also won the SP3T class at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring driving a works Volkswagen Scirocco.[2]

Thiim finished 4th in the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup Germany, collecting a win and four podiums.

In 2012, Thiim raced in the Porsche Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup Germany, finishing 3rd in both. He also got three podiums in the ADAC GT Masters driving a Porsche 911. He continued in both the Porsche Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup Germany in 2013 and became Porsche Supercup champion.

After the tragic crash at the 24 Heures du Mans that claimed the life of Aston Martin Racing Young Driver team driver Allan Simonsen, Thiim was the replacement driver for the #95 car for the next three races in the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship season and subsequently earned a full time drive for Aston Martin Racing starting in the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship season. He took the GT Championship with Aston Martin in 2016.
