Olli Kangas returns for a second year in the STCC with LMS Racing

Finnish driver Olli Kangas will be back for another full year in the 2018 Scandinavian Touring Car Championship, returning with LMS Racing in a Cupra TCR.

Kangas scored two seventh-place finishes as his best results in the 2017 STCC on his way to 16th in the drivers’ standings, taking those results at his home race at Alastaro and also at the season finale at Mantorp Park.

The Finn’s pre-season preparation has included taking part in the Silverstone 24 Hours in a Cupra TCR DSG with team principal Antti Buri and fellow Finn Kari-Pekka Laaksonen, and also again at the UK circuit in the opening round of the TCR UK series, where he finished fifth in the final race of the day.
