Emil Persson set for STCC debut with Kågered Racing

The reigning V8 Thunder Cars Sweden champion Emil Persson is set to join the STCC TCR Scandinavia grid for the 2020 season with Kågered Racing.

Persson took part in the STCC test day at Karlskoga late last year, testing the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR of Kågered Racing.

The 29-year-old has claimed the 2019 and 2018 V8 Thunder Cars Sweden titles for Bryntesson Motorsport, as well as the 2015 Legends Cup Sweden title.

Kågered Racing is expected to make an official announcement later this week in connection with the Swedish automotive show Automässan in Gothenburg, starting on Wednesday, where Persson will be present at the stand of his main sponsor Nederman.
