Four Saab 9-3s to race Swedish TTA championship this year

News concerning the Saab bankruptcy are few and far between at the moment. So instead let's take a look at some exciting Saab racing news!

This year Saab will race Volvo, BMW and Citroën in the new Swedish racing series TTA. The Saab presence is a co-operation between Flash Engineering and Team Tidö and will be called tribute2saab. They will enter with four Saab 9-3s. Among others, Saab Automobile Parts will support the team.

"We think this is a fantastic effort and it's great to see Flash Engineering and Team Tidö highlight Saab as a car with this tribute. It also gives us a good opportunity to show that we are alive and that we are still taking care of Saab cars in 160 workshops around the country," said Thomas Sundström, Director of the Swedish aftermarket at Saab Parts.

Also Saab rally legend Erik Carlsson is excited:

"It warms my heart that Saab will live on at the racing tracks this year. With so many wonderful memories that I have with Saab and so much Saab has been and still is part of the Swedish people, it makes me so happy to see that there are enthusiasts who feel this strong for dear Saab," said Erik Carlsson "On the roof".
