Helsingborg street event delayed to 2025

The planned STCC event on the streets of Helsingborg has been put back to 2025, and will be replaced with an additional round at Knutstorp.

Helsingborg was due to host the fifth meeting of the campaign but the event will no longer take place this year, with round five instead being run as part of a bumper weekend of competition at Knutstorp in September featuring no fewer than four STCC races over two days.

Due to the change, STCC will provide free transport from Helsingborg to Knutstorp – which can be booked via the official STCC website for those holding tickets to the event – whilst those who booked tickets for the city event can transfer them to Knutstorp or receive a refund.

“We are now gearing up together with Ring Knutstorp for an event where the audience will get to see twice as many races,” STCC CEO Micke Berne said. “We would like to thank the organisations at Ring Knutstorp and Helsingborg for making this solution possible.

“Unfortunately, we did not find a working solution in terms of planning and setup for this year’s race in Helsingborg, but we are happy to have continued strong co-operation with them for 2025 and 2026.

“When we can’t take the racing to central Helsingborg in 2024, we simply have to make the best of the situation and take people from Helsingborg to Knutstorp and back.

“Many partners and sponsors will provide accommodation and activation during this weekend in Helsingborg, so STCC will definitely be visible and active in the city.”

A new date for the 2025 event in Helsingborg will be revealed later this year.

The STCC organisation also states that it has got a dialogue with two “major Swedish cities” for 2025, with Uppsala having confirmed to be one of them.
