On Saturday run number 3 and 4 start in the Gothenburg City Arena. In a press release of the STCC, the on a Saab 9-3 STCC of the PWR Racing Teams starting driver from Finland optimistic. A podium finish is the goal and should be possible in their opinion.

Which would not be such a small sensation. Because she has never been on the course in Gothenburg before. "We're working on it" and "I'm learning fast," Kimiläinen said. After all, she was already able to score 1 points in runs 2 and 10, her premiere in the STCC.

However, the best-placed Saab does not come out of the factory-supported PWR Racing Team, but from Team Tidö. Richard Göransson is very close to third place in the drivers' standings. Regardless of whether Team Tidö or PWR Racing Team. It's nice to see a Saab on the racetrack and it would be even nicer to see a Saab driver on a podium at the weekend.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed!
    2 SAAB among the first 10 best vehicles — wonderful! But how do KIA and Dacia make it into the top 10 ??? Somehow impossible ... and yet impressive! However, my focus remains on the SAAB ... .. ;-)
    Sunny Whitsun to all saab bloggers ……… ..
