Rob Huff is stepping up preparations for a debut appearance in the 2020 STCC TCR Scandinavia.

The Cambridge-based driver will be competing for the Lestrup Racing Team, which will field two Volkswagen Golf GTI TCRs in the truncated championship that will get under way at the Gelleråsen Arena.

Ahead of the official pre-season test, the livery for the cars was unveiled at Volkswagen Smista in Stockholm, a long-standing partner of the team.

“It’s a striking design and it reminds me of my championship winning car from 2012,” said Huff.

“I’ve been in Sweden with the team for five days preparing for the test and I’m impressed so far with what I’ve seen.

“I’m looking forward to getting back into a race car after a few months at home and eager to get going.”

Fredrik Lestrup, co-owner of Lestrup Racing Team, said: “We are really pleased with the new design.

“Unveiling the new look is always a sign that the season is getting closer and it feels especially great after the unusually long break.

“The design is an interpretation and combination of our previous STCC design and the one we had on our endurance race car last year.”
