Fredrik Ekblom, three times STCC champion, and Patrik Olsson are the two drivers when the energy company E.ON enters STCC with to Volkswagen Scirocco CNG. The idea is to show the potential of biogas – an environmentally friendly fuel which E.ON now will introduce more on the market.
There have been rumours for some time but now it´s official: E.ON will start in STCC 2009 together with its main partner Volkswagen!
The two cars which are going to race are Volkswagen Scirocco – a car which made its racing debut on 24 hours at Nürburgring in May 2008. The car was the winner of its class and also number 11 out of 219 cars in total. What is unique with the STCC version of Scirocco is that it is powered with a CNG engine.
