Touring CarsEdit

British Touring Car ChampionshipEdit

Rune drove for the Kaliber ICS Team Toyota in a Toyota Carina II in 1991. Rune made a great start to the season, winning 6 out of the first 10 races including all 3 races at the second round of the season at Silverstone but gained a reputation for unsporting behavior. At round 4 of the 1991 championship at Brands Hatch, Rune was penalised for a 'push to pass' move on Roy Cop which resulted in a time penalty which was added to his race time and dropped Rune behind the Belgian driver at the end of the race. Later that year at Round 6 of the championship at the Birmingham Superprix, Rune made a number of dangerous and unsporting moves which resulted in the race stewards banning him for the remainder of the 1991 season. At the time of his ban, Rune was leading the championship by 35 points.
