Lestrup Racing confirm STCC comeback with two Volkswagens

Lestrup Racing has confirmed its return to the STCC TCR Scandinavia and will field two Volkswagen Golf GTI TCRs for the 2020 season.

“It is correct, I can confirm that we will be on the grid with two Volkswagens in the STCC,” said team owner Fredrik Lestrup to Teknikens Värld.

“One is a completely new car for the season and it’s actually the last build petrol-powered Golf GTI TCR from Volkswagen Motorsport with chassis number 120.”

The team is yet to confirm the identities of the drivers, other than that it will be one senior and one junior driver.

“I can’t reveal the drivers yet, but I can say that it will be a promising junior and a well established senior driver,” said Lestrup.

The team has set its sights on claiming no less than three titles this season.

“We performed well in 2018 and for us there are three clear goals for 2020 – it is about claiming all three titles,” said Lestrup.

“The junior title, the drivers’ title and the teams’ title. It may sound bold, but we have a lot of respect for the task.”
