Johan Kristoffersson is the new Scandinavian Touring Car Championship (STCC) Champion. The 23-year old driver from Volkswagen Team Biogas sensationally took the championship title in a heart-stopping finale at Solvalla. In the first race the Swede, at the wheel of the Volkswagen Scirocco CNG, presented the Wolfsburg based brand a one-two-three victory together with his brand teammates Johan Stureson and Patrik Olsson. He also finished the final race as winner in front of second place finisher Stureson and, in doing so, eased ahead of defending Champion Rickard Rydell (Chevrolet) in the championship standings to take the spoils by a mere six points.
