Lestrup Racing Team enters crucial stage of STCC season at Mantorp Park

Lestrup Racing Team is entering a crucial stage of the 2020 STCC TCR Scandinavia season with the penultimate round at Mantorp Park this weekend.

Team-mates Rob Huff and Oliver Söderström are both within reach of the championship lead, just 12 and 16 points behind respectively.

“I’m very excited to be back in Sweden for the final STCC races and I’m obviously staying here until the end of the season. I’m pleased to have completed a test here and at Knutstorp, that gives me confidence going into the last two rounds. I’ve been treading the water carefully so far this season to understand the rules and other drivers. Now it’s very much time for me to make my move and forge to the front of the championship,” said Rob Huff.

“We had a good test at Mantorp Park earlier this summer and we found solutions to problems that we’ve had. I want to head from this weekend as the best scoring driver. I know that it’s not in anyway easy, but I’ve done it before this year,” said Oliver Söderström.

Lestrup Racing Team heads the team championship by 31 points and the junior championship by 14 points with Oliver Söderström.

The team is on its way to Mantorp Park strengthened by a productive mid-season test.

“The entire team is in a season end sprint mode now and our goal is to leave Mantorp Park with the best possible conditions for the season finale. We had a good mid-season test and we have a lot of valuable new data. I have no doubt that this going to be a very tough weekend and we will make our utmost to make it rewarding,” said Fredrik Lestrup, team co-owner.

The action at Mantorp Park starts on Friday with testing and qualifying, followed by three races on Saturday.
