STCC: Audi driver Thed Bjork has made a big step towards winning the Swedish Touring Car Championship (STCC). Despite carrying 60 kilograms of handicap weight, Bjork finished the second last round of the season at Knutstorp in second place with his Audi A4. Before the finale at Mantorp Park, the Swede enjoys a nine-point lead over BMW driver Richard Goransson, the only other driver who could still clinch the title. At Knutstorp, Team KMS Motorsport showed the strongest team performance of the year: Former champion Fredrik Ekblom let Bjork past in the final laps, also taking a podium finish with his third place. Team owner Tommy Kristoffersson finished fourth with the team's third Audi A4 STCC.

Coming up the next two weeks
