This week, a Swedish Touring Cars special.

On last week’s show Autosport Editor in Chief Andy van de Burgt - the most respected motor sport journalist in the world and one of the key taste makers in the 2 billion pound British motor sport industry - didn’t actually go to the most important event on the UK motor sport calendar - the British Grand Prix.

Instead, he was waiting for a taxi to take him to the airport for a flight to Sweden to watch Swedish Touring Cars hare round the streets of Gothenburg.

So this week Matthew talks to the man who won that race - the man who leads theSwedish Touring Car Championship - Volvo Polestar Racing’s Thed Bj√∂rk.

Andy himself gives us his opinion on the Formula 1 tyre debacle.
