Robert Dahlgren shines in wet afternoon session at Knutstorp

2019 STCC TCR Scandinavia champion Robert Dahlgren topped a very wet afternoon test session at Knutstorp, lapping the Ring Knutstorp circuit in 1:10.437.

The PWR Racing driver beat team-mate Mikaela Åhlin-Kottulinsky by 0.562 seconds, with Lynk & Co 03 TCR driver Mattias Andersson third, 0.606 seconds from Dahlgren.

Andreas Ahlberg was fastest of the Volkswagen drivers in fourth for Kågered Racing ahead of team-mate Hugo Nerman, 0.915 and 0.946 seconds behind respectively.

Oliver Söderström, who topped the dry session yesterday, was sixth fastest ahead of Brink Motorsport’s Lukas Sundahl in seventh, 1.250 seconds from the top.

Lestrup Racing Team driver Robin Knutsson rounded off the top eight ahead of Tobias Brink and Rob Huff.

The session ran without any major incident, bar a full-course yellow as Andersson spun at the exit of the hairpin.

The STCC field heads to Ljungbyhed Park tomorrow for a further two days of official pre-season testing.
