Johan Kristoffersson and co-driver Stig Rune Skjærmoen gave it all on the final day, and on the final stage of Rally Sweden, and secured a strong podium position. – It feels very good to finish the rally with a fastest stage time and 3rd O/A in the WRC3. This is our second consecutive podium at our home rally!

This year’s shortened version of Rally Sweden offered only one stage of competition on the Sunday. Johan and Stig Rune were in a close battle with Oliver Solberg going into the final day, with Solberg just a second ahead. Johan closed the gap already on the first split-section, however Solberg suffered a puncture later and dropped down on the board.
- I am very happy with our performance this weekend and it’s been a great rally. We didn’t take any risks on the opening day, pushed a little bit more on the Saturday, and finished the final stage with being the fastest R5-car. Our car worked brilliantly over the weekend, big thanks to our team. And also to Stig Rune who’s been awesome.
Johan also ended as the best placed Swede in the competition.
