11/07/2010 - Pole and two victories for the Volvo S60

2010 - Francorchamps BTCS July

During qualifying Eric and Vincent Radermecker made it clear that the ambitions for the weekend were very high.

With the Volvo S60 he smashed the lap record for a BTCS-Silhouette car by setting a lap of 2.26.770, despite the high temperatures.

On Saturday came the confirmation: the Volvo S60 won both BTCS-races held during the 25 Hours Fun Cup-weekend.

Don't think this came easy”, Vincent Radermecker said after the first race. “Yes, we created a

gap, but we were afraid that a safety car intervention would wipe out our advantage. Fortunately,

that was not the case, so we could take the chequered flag. A ‘historic' first win, and I took all the

time to savour this special moment. Don't forget that this car made its debut on April 11th, and

immediately showed a lot of potential by fighting at the front. And now we score our first win.

Great stuff.

The early afternoon heat was no hindrance for a second win.

Pole position, two wins and two fastest race laps: this was a perfect weekend”, Eric van de Pole

said. “But we could only win thanks to the great work of the team. Like everybody else we feared

the heat, it was 34°C, but our Volvo ran faultlessly. Not only this a very competitive car, it proves

to be very reliable as well.

Our drivers drove perfectly, our strategy was the good one”, team manager Thomas Néri added.

This double win is great for the championship as well.

The next race for the Volvo S60 is on 18th and 19th September in Spa.
