MAGNUSSON REPRESENTING RACING DRIVER RICKARD RYDELL

2012-02-02

RACING DRIVER RICKARD RYDELL BECOMES ONE OF MAGNUSSON'S CLIENTS

On September 24, 2011, Swedish racing driver Rickard Rydell won the 2011'S "Scandinavian Touring Car Championship" title at Mantorp Park. Rydell, competing for Chevrolet Motorsport Sweden, won the first race and wa fourth in the second race, which was just enough to beat Fredrik Ekblom (Team Biogas/Volkswagen) in the championship.

After the STCC final, Team Biogas and its driver Thed Björk filed a protest against Rickard Rydell for overtaking Björk under a yellow flag. The protest was rejected by the Stewards of the race, but the decision was appealed by Björk. The case has now finally been tried by the Swedish Automobile Sports Federations ("SBF") court of appeal, the Legal Committee, which also rejected Björks protest, thus confirming that Rydell is the STCC champion.

Rickard Rydell was represented by Peter Friis, Partner at Magnusson, during the proceedings before SBF:s Legal Committee.
