Last post from previous page:

The title went to one of the two right people. Had Rast secured the title then it would have been an utter travesty to Di Resta and Paffett. The mid-season rule change took Audi from being also-rans to the dominant manufacturer. Rast's 6 successive wins was impressive though.

We might have seen the last from Fredrik Ekblom, one of Sweden's all time greatest drivers.

A bit under the radar internationally for most of his career, he drove a few races in Indycar in the mid 90's, had a full-time contract with AJ Foyt for 1996 but was cancelled when Foyt committed to IRL and Ekblom didn't have enough oval experience. He did race with Walker Racing in the infamous 1996 US 500, but blew up soon after the race restarted, so never had the chance of making his mark over there. But 5 pole positions in 10 races with the might BMW M3 GTR in ALMS GT in 2001 was a real feat, and so was his stints in ETCC, WTCC and in sports car racing.
