11-08-13 - Important points in Karlskoga

Rickard Rydell finished fifth an fourth in the STCC races in Karlskoga. The Chevrolet driver is still second in the championship, five points behind Fredrik Ekblom.

Fifth in race one and fourth in race two were the results for Rickard Rydell in Karlskoga. Reining champion Richard Göransson dominated the weekend with two wins.
”The first corner is quite difficult here in Karlskoga but I had no problems in race one and could keep my position. It did not happen much at the front during the race and there were no overtaking among the first five”, said Rickard Rydell.
”I started fourth in race two and was third for a while before Richard Göransson, the fastest man out there today, passed me. This circuit has many slow corners and while the front wheel drive cars are fast in qualifying, the BMWs are much faster in the races."
Chevrolet driver Rydell is still second in the championship behind Fredrik Ekblom, the latter extending his lead by tree points this weekend.
”It is very close in the championship. I am now five points behind Ekblom and Göransson scored 50 points here … Ahead of the coming races as Jyllandsringen and Knutstorp we have to find as much speed in the car as possible to be able to catch the leader.”
The STCC resumes in two weeks at Jyllandsringen in Denmark.
