Colin Turkington gained two positions in the first STCC race of the weekend at Knutstorp to finish sixth.
”It was a tough race and I am pretty pleased. We managed to gain two positions, something that gives me a good position for the second race,” said Turkington.

Jan ”Flash” Nilsson crossed the line tenth after a race long fight with Roger Eriksson.
”I got stuck behind Roger Eriksson, I was a lot faster than him. He shut the door on me everywhere and we lost about a second per lap on the guys ahead of us,” said ”Flash”.

With the grid for the second race being decided from reversing top eight of the first race, Turkington is going to start third and is going to have the inside line for the first corner.
”It is all about having the inside line for the first corner on this track. We have improved the car from the qualifying and if we can find a bit more for the second race, we should be in for a good one,” said Turkington
