Radical Clubman’s Cup race winner Oskar Krüger has been crowned the Sunoco 200 Challenge winner and will be turning out at Daytona in January.

The championship went down to the final weekend of the F3 Cup as that series’ champion, Toby Sowery, still had a mathematical chance of overhauling Krüger but unfortunately he couldn’t make the Snetterton round and thus forfeited his chance of travelling stateside.

For the Swede, he will now have a little time to get ready before he heads to Florida and the Continental Tire SportsCar BMW Performance 200 in which he will race a Chevrolet Camaro around the famed banking.

He said: “Since mid season, when I realised that I had a good chance to win the Sunoco 200 Challenge, I’ve been focusing on setting fastest laps and trying to get as many pole positions as possible as they give 20 points towards my average points. My closest rival in the Challenge has, I guess, been Toby Sowery in F3 Cup who has been on top form all season, so it is great to have beaten him to the Camaro prize drive in Daytona.

“I must admit that the two last race meetings were quite stressful as I was constantly thinking about the Challenge, so I’m really relieved that it worked out. In preparation for the prize drive I tested a Swedish Camaro Cup car at Mantorp Park in Sweden last week and it’s a world apart from the Radical PR6.”

Krüger is now the fourth winner of the challenge, joining Lewis Plato, Lawrence Davey and Aaron Steele in competing in the season opening round of the Continental Tire Series.

The next stop for the Swede is the ROAR before the 24 in early January.
