Johan Kristoffersson did it again and claimed a second victory in TCR Scandinavia’s Norwegian trip that was plagued by changeable weather conditions.
After he won Race 1 under a torrential rain, Kristoffersson recovered from fifth on the grid to take the lead from Andreas Wernersson with two laps to go. This also meant that the KMS driver was able to stretch his leadership in the standings to 14 points over PWR Racing’s reigning champion Robert Dahlgren.
At the start, Mattias Andersson sprinted from the pole position in his Honda Civic, leading from Wernersson, Fredrik Ekblom and Kristoffersson. During the opening lap Wernersson overtook Andersson and pulled away, while Kristoffersson moved to third after passing Ekblom.
On lap 3, Kristoffersson stole second place from Andersson who then lost more positions and eventually finished sixth.
The track was drying and Kristoffersson began chasing Wernersson; behind the leading duo, PWR Racing’s teammates Dahlgren, Philip Morin and Daniel Haglöf were comfortably keeping the positions from third to fifth.
With three laps to go, the rain intensified again and so did the battle between Wernersson and Kristoffersson. They ran abreast for several turns, until Kristoffersson managed to take the lead and went to claim his third victory of the season.
The championship will come to an end on October 21/22 at Mantorp Park.
