Autocirc – a market-leading company around climate-smart reuse in the auto parts industry – becomes the “Official Sustainability Partner” of the STCC ahead of the historic 2023 season when the national championship becomes the first in the world to be 100% electric.
Johan Livered, CEO of Autocirc, commented:
“STCC’s world-leading position in terms of climate-smart motorsport is exactly in line with Autocirc’s vision, and we look forward to strengthening our collaboration.” Livered added: “Autocirc strives to create a more sustainable aftermarket and a completely circular model in our part of the world. Our experience and knowledge will be an important part of STCC’s work on sustainability. In addition, STCC’s unique platform that unites elite sport, technology development and business is a key part of our collaboration in terms of meeting and building relationships for our continued expansion.”
The collaboration between STCC and Autocirc began already in 2021 with a strong focus on recycling and reduced environmental impact in everything from spare parts to the implementation of race weekends.
Micke Bern, CEO of STCC, said:
We look forward to strengthening our collaboration with Autocirc, which is more important than ever when we electrify STCC and create the conditions for climate-smart motorsport. Bern added: “Autocirc’s circular reuse concept becomes an important part in many parts of our business and also in the work to highlight the need to reduce the extraction of new, finite natural resources for the production of car and spare parts.”
The new era of STCC starts on July 8-9 with the West Coast Race at Falkenberg Motorbana.
STCC is Scandinavia’s leading racing championship that was founded in 1996. The championship competes with heavily modified standard cars in an explosive, short and adrenaline-filled competition format on the best racing tracks in Sweden. From 2023, the championship will be electrified with brand new racing cars of close to 550 horsepower, the most powerful cars in STCC history. STCC is broadcast LIVE via the streaming platform STCC+.
Autocirc works for a circular transition within the automotive industry. We make sure that used car parts get back on the roads again – or that materials and components can be useful in completely different products and contexts. By moving from new production to reuse, renovation, reuse and recycling of car parts, we are on the way to making the second-hand market the first choice. A sustainable choice for a smarter car industry and a better alternative not least for the next generation.
