Joel took victory and established a new track record in the 2024 edition of tradition-steeped Swedish rental kart event KAK-Cupen on Sunday.
Organized annually by the Royal Swedish Automobile Club (KAK), this year’s event was held at Stockholm’s Järfälla karting center, with Joel going undefeated through all heats and then winning the finale ahead of 2023 Swedish Karting Champion (KZ2) Teodor Ödmark.
On his way to victory, Joel also set a new track record at the Järfälla venue.
“It’s been a fun day with KAK and all the participants, and of course it’s always nice to win,” says Joel. “KAK-Cupen is somewhat of a winter classic here in Sweden and it’s a good opportunity for all of us to meet and make new connections. I’d like to thank KAK for organizing a great event.”
Also partaking in the event was Joel’s younger brother Linus, who similarly won all his heats en route to the finale. Once there, he ran second to Joel on the opening lap when a rival driver tagged him into a spin, dropping him down the order to eventually finish fourth.
