THE NEW VOLVO S60 GETS NAUGHTY ON THE RACING TRACKS, WHILE VOLVO POLESTAR REMAINS IN STCC-LEAD

THIS VOLVO S60 HAS GREAT POTENTIAL

On the track of Dijon, in France, Vincent Radermecker and Eric van de Poele had their first taste of champagne for their 2010 campaign. At the Belgian Touring Cars Series Championship, Volvo S60 Racing finished on the podium in both races. A promising result for the rest of the season.

 


Eric van de Poele and Vincent Radermecker were obviously right when they stated, only a few moments after driving the Volvo S60 for the first time, that this car would lead them to great results. This Saturday the drivers of Volvo S60 Racing managed a double podium finish on the French track of Dijon.
"Before the start of the weekend, I would have signed with both hands for this result", Vincent Radermecker smiled.

 

 

 

 

 

"Our car still needs some improvements in the set-up", stated Eric van de Poele. "After all, it's only at the beginning of its racing career. But the fact that it marveled in the rain, and that we could lead for a long time in the wet, proves it has undeniable road holding qualities. Not bad for a car that has to compete in a championship in a country where it is known to rain once in a while."
"A perfect result", added team manager Thomas Neri. "

VOLVO POLESTAR AND DAHLGREN LEAD THE TEAM AND DRIVER'S CHAMPIONSHIPS

The season's first Swedish Touring Car Championship took place on a track that is very winding and narrow, and therefore favors rear-wheel drive cars. Despite this fact, the defending champions Volvo Polestar, Tommy Rustad and Robert Dahlgren respectively won the first and second heat. That puts Dahlgren in top of the driver's championship, and Volvo Polestar on top in the team championship.

 

The first round of the season is completed. Two wins and one pole position means Volvo has now claimed its fourth consecutive race win and twelfth consecutive pole position - Volvo Polestar has been quickest in all qualifying sessions in STCC from the second to last race of the 2008 season.

 

 

 

 

 

 With two second places in the second round, and another one in the third round, Volvo Polestar remains in the STCC Team and Driver lead.

 

"This season starts with three away games; three narrow twisty tracks in a row - Jyllandsringen, Knutstorp and Karlskoga. We are very satisfied with being in the lead at this stage of the season" says team manager Christian Dahl.

Next race is on June 5, and on Volvo Polestar's home turf - Gothenburg City Race Arena. Donít miss it!
