Brink Motorsport confirm two-car Audi assault in the 2018 STCC

Brink Motorsport have confirmed they will return to compete in the 2018 Scandinavian Touring Car Championship, again running a pair of Audi RS 3 LMSs for Tobias Brink and Micke Ohlsson.

The team had a strong run in their debut season in 2017, with two podium finishes for Tobias Brink at Knutstorp and Mantorp Park, with team-mate Ohlsson finishing in the top ten on nine occasions, helping the team to finish in third place in the teams’ championship, behind touring car powerhouses PWR Racing and Kristoffersson Motorsport.

“My fingers are itching to get going with the pre-season,” said Tobias Brink.

“We showed during 2017 that when we get everything in place, we are in the top fight, and I am convinced that we made strong steps in development during the last part of the season. If I can raise my level, the old foxes need to watch out.”

33-year-old team-mate Micke Ohlsson returns for his second season in the STCC, and is hoping for a step up after a promising first season.

“I’m really looking forward to 2018 and it feels really good to continue with the team,” he said.

“We have the same ambitions and the same thoughts on how to reach them. It’s no surprise that I want to be at the top of the 2018 STCC. I want the season to get started so we can continue to develop as we get closer to the season première at our home circuit at Ring Knutstorp on May 5th.”

In their second year in the championship, the Skåne-based team is hoping for even more success from its drivers and the Audi Sport customer racing-developed RS 3 LMS.

“We have competed in motorsport for a long time and we have managed to win many championship titles along the way,” said team manager Ted Brink. “In 2017 we took on a big challenge when we debuted in the STCC, but now our debut year is over, we are hungry to be at the top of the 2018 STCC.

“There are exciting things happening in the team and we’ve worked with our partners to come up with a really strong package for this year,” he added. “We will have every opportunity for the team to be taken seriously against the more established teams.”
