From left ro right cars belongs to:  Lars Harrysson, Lasse Åberg, Martin Nilsson, Michel Lorin, Torgny Nordgren, Mikael Palmqvist, Michael Landrud.

The track is fast which both causes a lot of tire wear and some collision. During the latter stages some drivers changes tires and lost some laps initially but then went fast again and some saved time not changing tires but struggled to keep up the pace.
At the end it was a trio that has SSC as home track that took the top three places.
