Sweden - Opel finishes second in F2 rallying.

Opel Team Sweden finished the year second in the Swedish Rally Championship after Per Svan took the Opel Astra Kit Car to second F2 placing in the final round Reijmer Rally. An electrical problem plagued Svan early in the event and he was unable to regain lost ground over eventual winner Andreas Eriksson (Ford).

Svan's championship hopes all but disappeared last month, when he failed to finish the Sandviken Rally following engine troubles to the Astra, leaving Jonas Kruse (Renault) to move ahead in the points table.

<pre> Reijmer Rally:

1 Andreas Eriksson   Ford  1:06.44.5 
2 Per Svan   Opel  1:06.49.1 
3 Jonas Kruse   Renault 1:06.50.0 
4 Magnus Henrikkson  Renault 1:07.34.4 
5 Harry Joki    VW  1:08.40.8 

Swedish F2 Rally Championship - final after 6 rounds:

1 Jonas Kruse   Renault 65 points
2 Per Svan   Opel  60 
3 Andreas Eriksson  Ford  50
