Colin Turkington climbed to sixth in the first race of the weekend at Knutstorp.
”It was a good race, I gained on place which gives me a strong position on the grid for race two,” said Turkington.

Jan ”Flash” Nilsson was once again taken off in the first corner as a number of cars collided behind him.
”The stewards say that Roger Eriksson crashed in to Göransson and Andersson. I just got hit all of a sudden in the first corner and I spun, the race was over there for me,” said ”Flash”.

Turkington had a hard fight with Johan Kristoffersson for the majority of the race, but was unable to get past for fifth.
”It is hard racing against the Volkswagens as their cars are so fast in a straight line. But we had a really strong car in the race, promising for a good second race,” said Turkington.

The second race starts at 15.35 CET where Turkington is going to start third and ”Flash” 15th.
