Rob Huff: “This is just crazy! What a day, what a win!”

Rob Huff became the first non-Scandinavian driver since 2002 to claim the STCC TCR Scandinavia title and the Brit hailed Lestrup Racing Team.

“This is just crazy! What a day, what a win! Huge thanks to Lestrup Racing Team, without these boys and girls it could not have been done,” said Huff.

The 2012 WTCC champion claimed maiden his STCC win in the opening race of the season finale weekend at Knutstorp, followed up by second place in the second race and a second win in the final race.

“I got myself in a good position in the final race and stayed there. I was able to control the race and claim my second win of the weekend. It’s been a tough year and this is such a great reward for everyone in the team,” said Huff.

Lestrup Racing Team celebrated two titles, the drivers’ and teams’, and team co-owner Fredrik Lestrup was over the moon as the dust settled after the final race.

“I am incredibly proud over everyone in the team. We managed to secure the STCC titles for drivers and team in only our second season in the STCC,” said Lestrup, co-owner of Lestrup Racing Team.

“We have fought through a lot of problems this year and when it really mattered, everyone has delivered to 110%. Rob drove amazingly well today and throughout the entire season, he is definitely a worthy champion. The plan is to be back next year to defend our titles.”

Huff claimed the drivers’ title by seven points over last year’s champion Robert Dahlgren.
