Lestrup Racing plans “minimum” two cars for 2022 STCC with new facilities

Lestrup Racing Team has confirmed plans for “a minimum of two cars” in the 2022 STCC TCR Scandinavia season, as the team has moved into new facilities in the Swedish capital Stockholm.

“Our goal for 2022 is firmly set on bringing the STCC titles back to where they belong at Lestrup Racing Team and a key part to this is our new facilities in Stockholm,” said Fredrik Lestrup, co-owner of Lestrup Racing Team.

“We plan to run a minimum of two cars in the 2022 STCC season.”

The team fielded three Volkswagen Golf GTI TCRs this season for Oliver Söderström, Mikael Karlsson and Robin Knutsson.

Söderström finished fourth overall and claimed the junior title while the team finished second overall in the teams’ standings.

“While we did not achieve our main target of defending our drivers’ and teams’ titles, we had a good year with competitive pace and the focus for 2022 is to put all pieces together,” said Fredrik Lestrup.

“We have absolutely no doubt on that we have what it takes to challenge for the 2022 titles and we will reveal more information about our drivers for the coming season in due course.”
