Lestrup Racing Team has moved into new facilities in Stockholm as part of its strengthened title assault for the 2022 STCC TCR Scandinavia season.
“Our goal for 2022 is firmly set on bringing the STCC titles back to where they belong at Lestrup Racing Team and a key part to this is our new facilities in Stockholm,” said Fredrik Lestrup, co-owner of Lestrup Racing Team.
“We plan to run a minimum of two cars in the 2022 STCC season.”
The team has moved into new 400m2 facilities in the Swedish capital that are dedicated to its STCC programme.
“The new facilities are like night and day for us regarding efficiency, performance and development of our STCC cars and everything connected to it,” said Fredrik Lestrup.
“We have space to maintain up to four cars and this is a vital part in our expansion for the future.”
Lestrup Racing Team finished second overall in the 2021 STCC teams’ standings, with Oliver Söderström clinching the junior title as well as fourth overall in the standings.
Team-mates Mikael Karlsson and Robin Knutsson claimed a victory each during the season, finishing seventh and ninth overall respectively.
“While we did not achieve our main target of defending our drivers’ and teams’ titles, we had a good year with competitive pace and the focus for 2022 is to put all pieces together,” said Fredrik Lestrup.
“We have absolutely no doubt on that we have what it takes to challenge for the 2022 titles and we will reveal more information about our drivers for the coming season in due course.”
