Audi driver Morbidelli wins Championship

Superstars: With his fifth consecutive victory, Audi driver Gianni Morbidelli has prematurely clinched the title in the Italian Superstars Touring Car Series. Starting from pole position at Vallelunga, the former Formula 1 driver celebrated a commading lights-to-flag victory with his Audi RS 4. Team-mate Giorgio Sanna also started from the front row but could not finish the race after damaging the oil cooler of his Audi RS 4 in a collision.

Second place for Frank Stippler in Sweden

STCC: In the second last round of the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC), Audi driver Frank Stippler was defeated only by the new Champion Fredrik Ekblom. Following an "off" in the "Super Pole" qualifying session, Stippler had to be content with eighth position on the starting grid. Nevertheless the German equalled his best STCC result in the race thanks to fast lap-times and a good strategy. He also took advantage form the bad luck that struck his team-mate Thed Bjork who was running second before he retired due to a transmission problem shortly before the end of the race.
