Vladimir Antonov to drive SUHRT #2 car at Midnight Sun Rally

I was going to wait a little longer to confirm, but it seems to be out there on the internets now……
The Saabs United Historic Rally Team is pleased to announce that Vladimir Antonov has accepted an invitation to drive our #2 car for the 2010 Midnight Sun Rally in Sweden!
vladimir_antonov_spyker.jpgAntonov is the former part-owner and board member of Spyker Cars NV who, in controversial circumstances, rescinded his ownership stake in order to facilitate the sale of Saab from General Motors to Spyker Cars.
Antonov is also the Chairman of the Snoras Bank supervisory board and the largest shareholder in Snoras Bank, who are big sponsors of the Spyker Squadron motorsport team.
Antonov is, of course, a very curious figure in the emerging Saab landscape with an obvious passion for the company. It’s going to be great to see him flying around the forests of Sweden in our white Saab 99 Turbo, based on Per Eklund’s early Saab Turbo rally cars.
That car is still under construction in Stockholm, but should be ready very soon.
