The first round of the South Swedish Indoor Cup for electric touring cars was this time held in Vaxjo. The track is small to medium sized, but with a quite open layout with a high flow with good traction. In the practice rounds Markus Hellquist put up the fastest lap ahead of Daniel Carlsson and Jonas Andersson. After 3 rounds of qualifying with the best round to count the order kept the same, with Hellquist being 7 seconds ahead of Daniel Carlsson, and 10 seconds ahead of Jonas Andersson.
In the first final Markus made an early mistake flipping the car over and fell way back in the field, leaving Jonas and Daniel to fight for the lead for the time being. But coming into the last minute Markus managed to catch up and pass Daniel on the straight for second place. However, three cars very close led to some race incidents and Daniel managed to win the first final, ahead of Markus in second and Jonas in third. The fight for the win was on in the last two finals, but these times around Markus made no mistakes and was able to cruise away to a safe overall victory in leg 2 and 3. Daniel Carlsson finished overall second and Jonas Andersson was to wrap up the podium with his third spot.
