Jessica Bäckman secured the second championship position in her debut season in the ADAC TCR Germany at the finale.

The Swede, who had started the year with Hyundai, had switched to Team Comtoyou Racing for the final four races. At the wheel of an Audi RS 3 LMS she has celebrated one third and two second places since the end of September.

At the finale at Hockenheim, she overtook the newly crowned champion Martin Andersen in the final sprint from grid position three.


The 25-year-old Scandinavian crossed the finish line half a second ahead of the Dane in second place after 18 laps. She thus relegated Szymon Ladniak to third place overall in the standings with a two-point lead.

In the 2022 ADAC TCR Germany Junior Challenge, Audi customer Max Gruhn finished the season in third position.
