Scuderia Nordica’s Ralf Aron completed a sweep of the final Formula Renault 1.6 Nordic round at Mantorp Park.

Aron controlled the race from pole and survived a late safety car restart to pick up his fifth victory in the championship.

Front row starter Ilmari Korpivaara maintained second throughout the race and managed to keep it until the checkered flag, securing his second podium in the category.

Pontus Fredricsson overtook Kevin Aabol on the final lap to take third place. Aabol himself finished fourth, 0.005s ahead of newly-crowned series champion Joonas Lappalainen.

Robert Svensson took sixth ahead of Oliver Soderstrom and Paul Blomqvist, with Robin Fredriksson and Rasmus Ericsson completing the points-scoring top ten.
