When not sure if you know but down under we have a unqiue form of tin top racing. V8 Supercars. Until recently it was only Holden vs Ford which got pretty boring hence they are allowing other manufacturers in. Now they also have Nissan, Mercedes AMG (unofficial team) and of course just started this year - Volvo Poledancing (oops Polestar) racing. One of the local teams run by a veteran changed over to run 2 S60's sponsored by Volvo and with assistance from Polestar. One drive is an ex Kiwi and the other a Swede. Well in the first race they qualified 2nd and then also finished 2nd - pretty good effort for their first race. The cars looks awesome in Rebel Blue and sound good to. They are using the old Yamaha 4.4 litre V8 from the XC90 bored out to five litres. You can check out all the action here.

We used to have a joke down under - "Not another bloody Volvo driver" as they has a bad reputation in the old 240's and 740's and 850's etc for driving slowly in the right hand lane. Not any more lol.

Hope the good results can continue!!
