Post Saab victorious in inaugural Swedish Touring Car race

Filed under: Motorsports, Sedan, Videos, Saab, Racing



The sequel to Frankenstein is being written in Swedish, by Saab. The ostensibly former car company could teach the good doctor about life after death, having earned itself more good news by winning the inaugural race of the Swedish Touring Car series. Team Tidö's black 9-3 racer was on pole and carried that lead all the way to the checkered flag. Driving it was Linus Ohlsson, whose past triumphs include taking third in the 2011 Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia series.

Just to be clear, all the cars in the series are silhouette racers, with Saab, Volvo, BMW and Citroën bodies placed over a spec chassis. Still, it was the body with the Griffin badge that beat the rest, and we all know Saab's faithful could use something to cheer about these days. Scroll down for a video recap of the race; it's in Swedish, so hit the CC button for English subtitles if you need 'em.Continue reading Saab victorious in inaugural Swedish Touring Car race

Default Rules?

Is there a link in English to the rules? I remember seeing a pic of a tubular chassis (not much else), that looked like it was one fit all. How about the motor was that Saab or Saab based even, what print there was, was a bit on the vague side.

A few years late at any rate, I was so "PO'd" that I could not watch the "8" racing with the Beemers and Holdens for more than a few minutes, knowing we should have had at least a "limited" token entry (FIS used to be a 100 for sale), and Beemer whizzes away that much at their model introductory fandango parties.
