Rob Huff returns with Lestrup Racing Team

Reigning STCC TCR Scandinavia champion Rob Huff will remain with Lestrup Racing Team for the 2021 season as the team expands its line-up.

“I’m very excited to return to the STCC as champion after what was probably one of the most emotional seasons I have experienced in a long time,” said Rob Huff.

The Brit managed to claim the STCC title on his first season in the championship after fighting outgoing champion Robert Dahlgren and Audi driver Tobias Brink until the last race.

“It was very much going into the unknown last year and I feel much more prepared for 2021 as I have visited at least four of the circuits that we will go to,” said Rob Huff.

“That should definitely make life easier to dial in the car for each particular circuit, rather than having to learn everything from scratch.

“I’m hugely thankful to Lestrup Racing Team for what they delivered last year and I’m very much looking forward to getting started again. I’m expecting a very tough championship this year, probably even tougher than last year, and we will do everything we can to rise to the challenge.”

Lestrup Racing Team managed to claim both the drivers’ and teams’ title last year, the first-ever for the team.

“Last year was an awesome milestone for us all in the team and we are delighted to continue our successful cooperation with Rob,” said Fredrik Lestrup, co-owner of Lestrup Racing Team.

“We had high expectations ahead of our first season together that he surpassed, and then some. Rob shares our passion for motorsport in just the right way and we have an unchanged team around him that will be a key factor in our title defence this year.”

Lestrup Racing Team has confirmed three cars for the 2021 season so far, with Huff joining already confirmed team-mates Oliver Söderström and Robin Knutsson.
