SRC: Hedström Swedish champion

Category: Miscellaneous, News Posted 11.09.12 11:43 by

Last Saturday the Finale of the Swedish Rallycross Championship was held at the Kinnekulle Ring near Götene and saw Peter Hedström claiming the 2012 SRC SuperCars title.

 

“The whole event was flawless for me. I set the fastest times in Timed Practice as well as in both the first two Qualifying Heats. Thereby I had already ensured myself of the Pole Position for the all decisive A final, but went out for a test drive in the third runs once more where “Stecka” [Stig-Olov Walfridsson] was the fastest. In the A final it was also perfect all the way from the pole to the chequered flag for me. Within no time I had a clear lead and sometimes even an advantage of up to 50 Meters against first “Rådis” [Thomas Rådström in the spare car of Peter Hedström, who dropped back to sixth place after half of the A final distance] and later “Stecka”, so it was really a great victory for me,” said Hedström after the event that was attended by almost 6,000 spectators.

The Kinnekulle SRC Finale saw also 14 times European champion Kenneth Hansen back behind the steering wheel, this time driving the Citroën DS3 SuperCar of ERC leader Timur Timerzyanov. “It took me a while to find the right feeling again,” said Kenneth. “But when it was back I really enjoyed the driving. However, I must admit that I had taken on this challenge for trying to win, so eventually I was a bit disappointed to become third.”

After Norwegian Hansen Motorsport youngster Alexander Hvaal had to withdraw his Kinnekulle entry due to illness it was Johan Larsson who was allowed to use the very HM DS3 that was driven by Sébastien Loeb to his X Games Gold Medal in Los Angeles some weeks ago. Larsson set one third fastest time in the qualifying runs and made it to the A final, but as being hampered by a puncture in the last race a place on the podium remained out of reach.
