When the fourth of 24 races in the World Driving Championship were decided at Solvalla on Saturday, Dutch top driver Rick Ebbinge swept to victory with Svante Båths Deep Pockets.

Today’s WDC race was very undramatic as Rick Ebbinge sent Deep Pockets straight to the lead, and after that there was never any doubt about how it would end. After keeping a good pace in the lead, he was the undeniable victor as he pulled over the homestretch.

At the top of the World Driving Championship we got a new leader today, when Mika Forss took over the lead after placing third with Mellby Fantom with a strong finish. Ulf Ohlsson, who was in the front in WDC following Fridays races, had a rough race and finished seventh with Zaragoza.

The top three are the same as after the first day, as James MacDonald finished fourth with Quite Special. Today’s winner Rick Ebbinge is just outside the top three with 36 points.

Top 3 after day 2
1. Mika Forss 42 points
2. Ulf Ohlsson 39.5
3. James MacDonald 37
