Swedish Touring Car Championship
GTI times three – Historic treble for Kristoffersson

First in the Polo GTI, now in the Golf: #johankristoffersson (S) backed up his first win of the season in the FIA World #rallycross Championship (WRX) with a historic treble in the Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR in the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC). His team-mate at Kristoffersson Motorsport, Fredrik Ekblom, also enjoyed a successful weekend at the Alastaro Circuit in Finland: the Swede has finished on the podium in all six races so far this season, and the resulting haul of points sees him lead the Drivers’ Championship, ahead of Robert Dahlgren (S, SEAT). Fredrik Blomsted (S) also continued his promising start to the season, claiming two podium finishes in Finland. “Historically, that is the best weekend we have ever had,” said team principal Tommy Kristoffersson (S). “The whole team did an outstanding job, and showed the great potential it has for the rest of the season.” Kristoffersson’s outfit is currently top of the team standings with 228 points, ahead of PWR #racing SEAT (172). The third round of the season will take place on 17 June.
