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.
