SAAB 9-3 STCC Team Tidö

Yesterday, the test days for the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC) ended on the Knutstorp Ring. During the NEVS-supported Saab 9-3 STCC with Emma Kimiläinen as in the previous days on the 7. Place landed, drove another Saab team further forward.

The four-time STCC champion Richard Göransson on the Saab 9-3 STCC from Team Tidö took 4th place, only 16 hundredths of a second behind Philip Forsman from the BMW dealer team. Göransson thus achieved the best result for the brand from Trollhättan on the last of the 3 test days. The potential for more seems to be there, let's be surprised. Göransson is driving in both the STCC and RallyX series this year.

A short clip of Richard Göransson, in which also the Saab of Team Tidö can be seen on the racetrack, has been put online by the STCC.

Exciting and serious for the teams will be the 9. and 10. May. Then, at Knutstorp Ring, near Helsingborg, the season starts with the first rounds.

  • Somehow the “SAABs” of the STCC don't mean much to me ...

    Although, of course, it's impressive what you can hang behind a SAAB grille. Everything is possible. Also container ships or moon rockets.

  • That does not sound too bad !! And the clip!
