Oliver Söderström and Rob Huff tops first STCC test of 2021 at Knutstorp

Lestrup Racing Team drivers Oliver Söderström and Rob Huff topped the first of two official STCC TCR Scandinavia pre-season test days at Ring Knutstorp.

Reigning champion Huff topped the time sheets initially but was beaten by team-mate Söderström by three tenths of a second. And the duo were alone in setting sub-one minute times with their Volkswagen Golf GTI TCRs, 59.6 and 59.9 respectively.

Mattias Andersson, who has switched from Honda to Lynk & Co for 2021, was third fastest, 0.706 seconds from Söderström, with PWR Racing driver Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky fourth, 0.817 seconds from P1.

STCC returnee Hugo Nerman was fastest of the Kågered Racing drivers in fifth ahead Lestrup Racing’s Mikael Karlsson in sixth.

Andreas Ahlberg (Volkswagen) and Robert Dahlgren (Cupra) rounded off the top eight.

A total of 12 drivers took part in the test, with Tobias Brink driving both of Brink Motorsport’s Audis today. Testing continues tomorrow from 09 to 16 CEST.
