The STCC, or Scandinavian Touring car Championship was formed in 2010 with a merger of the Swedish and Danish Touring car championships.

The Swedish touring car championship began in 1996, taking cues from the British Touring Car Championship that was very popular on Swedish television.

While racing obviously took part on swedish circuits, there were some rounds that took place in Norway.

The first season of the newly formed Scandinavian Championship was in 2011, and has just completed its fourth successful season.

Team Tido is a strong, highly focused, and dedicated close knit team, racing with 9-3 saloons.

It’s great to see a Saab presence out there on the track, continuing to compete in the tough world of motorsport.

Well done Team Tido.
