STCC TCR Scandinavia confirm postponed season start

The STCC TCR Scandinavia organisation has confirmed that the season start, scheduled for May 15-16 at Knutstorp, will be postponed due to the COVID19 pandemic.

“Our plan is to issue a revised calendar after Easter,” said Micke Bern, managing director of STCC, to TouringCarTimes.

“The wellbeing of everyone involved in the championship is our top priority and we are working hard on finding alternative dates to perform the season strongly when the conditions are there for it.”

While new dates are yet to be confirmed, the Knutstorp circuit owners have indicated a date move to the autumn.

“If we are going to move the race, I want it moved to the autumn,” said Magnus Öhrström, managing director of Kntustorp, to TT.

“This is like a horror movie. Who would have thought that the world would close down for three months?”

The Swedish authorities have currently got a limit set at a maximum of 50 persons for public gatherings.
