12-05-05 - Double podium in STCC premiere

Rickard Rydell scored two second places in the STCC premiere at Mantorp Park. The Chevrolet driver was fast but did not manage to pass double winner Johan Kristoffersson.

Rickard Rydell started the STCC season with two second places at Mantorp Park. In both races the Chevrolet driver made almost identical, late braking passes on Volkswagen’s Johan Stureson. Johan Kristoffersson, Volkswagen, was a double winner at the STCC premiere, although Rydell almost passed him in race two.
”We have to be pleased with two second places because we gave all we had. I would have liked to win race two but Johan Kristoffersson drove very good and gave me no room where I was faster than him”, said Rickard Rydell.
”The championship will be close this season and the cars are strong on different circuits. Next race will be at Knutstorp and I aim to win there …”
In the standings Kristoffersson leads ahead of Rydell and Stureson.
