Poul Rasmussen was born in Karlebo, in March 1914 and became a multiple champion in his native Denmark.

He also won at Skive in August and was forth in the Lilla Indianapolis, Sweden to become Danish Champion.

Two further wins in October still left him behind Gunnar.
1958 saw wins at Kostbrob in May, Fargelbarn and Hobro in June, followed by three victories at Roskildering to retake the championship
The 1959 Roskildering victories were in April, May and October plus a second in June, third in the Copenhagen Cup and a fourth in September to retain his championship. He also returned to Sweden to win at Falkenberg in July.
