Rosenblad third Swede at Anderstorp

Carl Rosemblad was the third Swedish driver to enter in the FIA WTCC event at Anderstorp. Joining fellow countrymen Rickard Rydell, who will drive for Chevrolet, and Fredrik Ekblom, entered by BMW Team UK, Rosenblad will take part in his home race meeting at the wheel of a BMW 320si run by Elgh Motorsport.

“Missing our home race would be too bad. Our goal is winning the Independents’ class, though we hope to achieve even something better,” he said.

Rosenblad – 38-year old from Västervick – is not a new face for the FIA Touring Car Championship, as he was a regular competitor in the 2004 ETCC and the 2005 WTCC. During the current season he has taken part in the opening round of the Swedish Touring Car Championship and, more recently, in the Le Mans 24 Hours.
