  • Well that you also need some “change” for something like that is also clear.
    Of course, such a violently riot-ridden car as they are in the STCC is not in it, but if you bother it with a slightly older 900 II or 9-3 I, that should be financially viable.

    Maybe there are SAAB fans who have some “change” and would support such a project 🙂

  • The 900R is at a collector who wants to rebuild it. What the current status is - I have no idea. Of course it would be nice to see a Saab on a German race track again. I like such (unreasonable) ideas 😉 Only it takes more than our idealism and the heart for the brand ...

  • Hello Tom

    Where we are already here on the subject SAAB in motorsport.
    What about the 900 R out of the 24 hour race Nürburgring 1995?

    The SAAB in the STCC are already top, but I would have much better if even at the Nürburgring again a SAAB would appear.
    The last one (SAAB 9-3) was 10 years ago.

    We could with the 900 R a SAABBLOG Racing Team reasons

  • So, I see two more points worthy of improvement:

    1. Own SAAB engine, according to specifications
    2. The KIA and especially the Dacia must be beaten.

  • In recent years, it has always been Nissan engines.

  • Presumably the Swedish TV will contribute (svt.se). If there's a live stream somewhere, I'll write about it

  • Are they just like last year pure silhouettes racing cars like in former times in the V8 Star series?

  • I could not find it out exactly, but it looks like it. In any case, SAAB would not have its own engine for it.

  • Can you follow the races somewhere ???

  • Hope the information keeps coming and videos about the races!
