A biting cold, a frozen track in the morning in a blue sky: the weather had put his hand to give up on heroin Swedish Volvo S60 Racing Team but the fate, like the rules of the Belgian Touring Car Series, had decided otherwise.

Eric van de Poele and Vincent Radermecker were forced to throw down the gauntlet Saturday at the first race of this final meeting of the season, defeated by a strange failure than not ... from the 4th on the grid behind the wheel of the car of the heaviest Silhouette plateau, they lived happily debate.

"Once again, we had bad luck, sorry Thomas Neri, team manager of the Volvo S60 Racing Team.

Saturday, Eric had played his experience extends beyond the three cars on the grid in front of him then he had widened the gap and the team, in turn, had managed the best pit stop of all Silhouettes. We were successful in every point of view until the piece to 50 cents we loose at once, not Wednesday, during our test day, or the free practice, no: at full speed!
This is the harsh law of motorsport. The third picked up on Sunday proves the potential of our Volvo and our team when the curse is willing to forget it.
We closed the season with a third podium to add to our three victories gleaned in Dijon, and especially the 12 Hours of Spa.
