STCC unveils new Head 2 Head circuit for Gothenburg premiere

The STCC organisation has unveiled a new Head 2 Head circuit which will be built in the centre of Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden, for the 2024 season opener.

“We have found a perfect place for our comeback right in the epicenter of Gothenburg together with Göteborg & Co and Got Event where we will be able to offer electrified racing at the highest level in a completely new and intense format,” said Micke Bern, CEO of STCC.

“Our expansion into the cities is a key part of our sustainable push where we will be able to bring the STCC to an audience that does not usually have the opportunity to see our races. Gothenburg is a city with a strong interest in sports where STCC has competed successfully in the past and we look forward to restarting our tradition here.”

The circuit will be 615 meters and will be run in a Race of Champion format which the STCC has named Head 2 Head, where two cars will race against each other in a number of different heats.

“We see how the flexible areas, Ullevi’s central location and well-known brand enables a type of event experience that we hope to see more of in the future. STCC is early to be a part of this development and we look forward to an exciting electric racing championship,” said Henrik Jutbring, event manager of Got Event.

The two city races of the calendar, Gothenburg and Helsingborg, will feature the Head 2 Head format while the remaining races will feature a traditional race format.

The last time the STCC raced in Gothenburg was 2015, held on a semi-permanent circuit in the harbor of the city.
