STM at Anderstorp

The weekend just past saw Swede Team Motor racing once again, this time at Anderstorp Raceway. There’s no race report in as yet, but I think I’ve managed to accurately navigate the SLC Cup website and acquire the results from races held on Sunday, May 20.

The race meetings for the SLC Cup are a little different in that there’s two races going on in one race event. The full day comprises eight hours of racing, but teams are clocked at the three-hour mark and the results at that point comprise the results of the first race.

In the three-hour race at the weekend, STM placed fourth in their class and 13th over all. Their class was won by the Type R Racing Team, whom Anders from STM had noted in his last report possessed a very fast car.

In the longer endurace race, STM managed to lift one place higher. Once again, reliability proved to be the Type R’s undoing and the Diesel 9-3’s strong point. In fact, the Type R team only managed another 15 laps after the three hour event before having to retire. In a testimony to the Diesel 9-3’s longevity and STM’s preparation, they raced the full eight hours, completing 206 laps in all.

I’ll post any more info about the event as it comes to hand.

    In the GT3 class there are cars like Porsche 911, Lotus Europa, Viper GTS-R and a Saab 9-3 (AWR).
