Daniel Roos is going to drive Flash Engineering’s third BMW 320si at the STCC finale at Mantorp Park next weekend.
”It is going to be great to take a step up and drive the STCC finale for Flash Engineering,” said Roos.

The 22-year-old has previously raced single seaters and GT, with titles in both Formula Ford and Formula Renault. Roos was also one of the drivers in Bräck Talent Development [BTD].
”I have followed Daniel’s development for a good while and he was the driver alongside Marcus Ericsson who performed best in BTD. Daniel has shown in both single seaters and GT cars that he is a promising and talented driver. We are looking forward to have him in our team and we are looking positive at further plans for 2012,” said Jan ”Flash” Nilsson.

Roos is going to drive a test at Karlskoga in next week as a preparation for his STCC debut.
”The BMW is completely new for me and the test is going to be very useful. But I am a fast learner and I was in the very top of Camaro Cup despite that I only had a short test before the races at Jyllandsringen,” said Roos.

The young Swede is going to face tough opposition in a field with close to 25 cars at Mantorp Park.
”It is going to be very interesting to see where I am compared to drivers like ”Flash”, Göransson and Rydell. I have never before faced a greater challenge,” said Roos.

Other than Flash Engineering, Bohlin Racing is also a part of the programme for Roos in the STCC finale.
”I am really glad over the chance I have gotten together with Flash Engineering and Bohlin Racing, without them it would not have been possible,” said Roos.

Roos is keeping his ambitions modest ahead of the upcoming finale at Mantorp Park on the 24th of September.
”I have no specific expectations result wise. I know that I am fast and it feels incredibly inspiring to face the very elite of Swedish racing, all of them with vast experience of these cars. I am going to do my best and try to get in to the top,” said Roos.
