12/04/2010 - Volvo S60's First Two Races: First Satisfaction!

2010 - Volvo's team mates

After qualifying respectively 5th and 6th, the results we achieved in our two races appear decent, although we aren't entirely satisfied with the performance. From the beginning of the weekend, our car's engine had been feeling a bit down on power and we only managed to cure the problem in the first race, which evidently cost us a lot of time.

In the end, we identified some dust in the injectors which had been hampering the engine's output.

After the problem was cured, the car's performance increased dramatically, so we were able to show its real potential in the second race. We finished 4th in the S1 category after a good start, and I even managed to put the new Volvo up into second position for a couple of laps at one point. Unfortunately, a little misunderstanding with another car sent me in the gravel trap and that deprived us of any hope of a podium finish. Vincent nevertheless did a tremendous job in the later part of the race, bringing the car home in 9th position overall and 4th in its class.

I reckon we will soon be very competitive and the Volvo - Rader - VDP combination will definitely be one to watch !

We are certainly looking forward to the next race at Dijon, where we will do our best to achieve the best possible result in order to thank all the team's partners for providing us with such a great racing program !
