Ohlsson And Rudholm Give Xlander A 1-2 In Race 2

Xlander Racing scored a 1-2 finish in the second Porsche Carrera Cup Scandinavia race at Jyllandsringen in Denmark, with Linus Ohlsson beating teammate Robin Rudholm to the win.

“It was a great race, I took the start and was leading all the way,” said Ohlsson. “The tyres started to get overheated and Rudholm got closer, but it was so nice to see the finish flag.”

Rudholm said: “I could not match Linus, he drove really well and I am pleased to have such a fast team mate. However, I am not pleased with two second places while the points haul is good.”

Johan Kristoffersson added to his Race 1 win by coming out on top of a close battle for third place, ahead of Oscar Palm and Mattias Stalknapp.

“I am pleased with the first two races, I scored a lot of points and I drove consistently,” Kristoffersson said. “The team did a great work and I am looking forward to the next race.”

Roar Lindland finished sixth, ahead of Lars-Bertil Rantzow, Jan West and Philip Forsman. Carl Philip Bernadotte crossed the line in tenth, but was subsequently handed a 30 second penalty for illegal blocking against Daniel Haglof. This dropped Bernadotte down to 16th and moved Niclas Olsson into tenth place.

Rudholm and Kristoffersson jointly lead the standings after the first round. The next round will be at Knutstorp in two weeks time.
