22nd July 2019 •

With two rounds still remaining of the Scandinavian Ginetta GT5 Challenge, last year´s champion Hampus Rydman has already clinched the title. By winning both races at Falkenberg he continued to dominate the grid securing 8 wins so far.

Teenager Daniel Andersson finished second in the Saturday race and holds joint runner-up position with veteran Anders Gustavsson.  Amalie Wichmand from Denmark, had a strong weekend with a fighting drive from ninth to fourth. On Sunday she made even more progress and took the last place on the podium behind Rydman and Andreas Lundin - the first top-3 result for the youngster.

 In the Junior Swedish Championship Daniel Andersson holds a commanding lead ahead of Amalie Wichmand and Linus Ahlström. Daniel also secured best rookie overall.

 Scandinavian Ginetta GT5 continues to grow with more than 20 competitors fighting it out at every race.

"There´s more to come and we expect even bigger grids in 2020”, says Scandinavian Ginetta promotor Leif Lindström. During the autumn we will organize tests for new drivers, starting with the Prince Carl Philip Racing Pokal on October 8.
