13 drivers took part in STCC test day at Gelleråsen Arena
The STCC TCR Scandinavia championship organisation held a test day for new drivers at Gelleråsen Arena earlier this week, attracting a total of 13 drivers.
“We had 13 skilled drivers on site for the test day and three of them are champions from the 2019 season,” said Micke Bern, CEO of MOM Events AB, the new promotor for the championship.
“This is an important part in our programme to secure the regrowth of the championship and take Scandinavian top level racing forward. The day felt very positive and I think there is a great possibility that we had one of the 2020 title contenders here.”
The champions of support classes Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia (Lukas Sundahl), Formula Nordic (Edward Woldseth) and V8 Thundercars (Emil Persson) took part in the test, driving PWR Racing’s Cupra TCR and Kågered Racing’s Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR.
“The TCR car was really fun to drive, especially interesting as I have only raced rear wheel-drive cars before. I think I got the grips of the car quickly, the feeling was good. I look positively at the future for STCC and I think it will be a great championship next year,” said Emil Persson.
Other drivers taking part in the test included Victor Bouveng, Alfred Nilsson, Thomas Faaras, Magnus Gustavsen, Sebastian Arenram, Kevin Engman, Erik Bertilsson, Isac Aronsson
and Anton Bergström.
