02/05/2010 - Double podium finish for the Volvo S60

Podium BTCS Volvo S60 Dijon Mai 2010

Eric van de Poele and Vincent Radermecker were obviously right when they stated, only a few

moment 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. “We finished third in race one, but honestly, we could not have done better.

In race two we were beaten by a team who took a risky tyre choice, but it worked out for them in

the end. Hats off to them.

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 marvelled 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. “Just in time to boost moral in our team,

only a couple of weeks before the highlight of the BTCS championship, the 12 Hours of Spa at the

beginning of June.
