Double podiums for Volvo Polestar at Jyllandsringen


- The Volvo team gains ground in the championship with two races to go

 

The seventh round in this year's STCC took place this weekend at Jyllandsringen in Denmark. The track, one of the shortest and tightest in the series, is well known for punishing front wheel drive cars with excessive tire wear.  

 

Consequently, Volvo Polestar arrived to this away game with a strategy set on not losing too much ground but could leave with results and more points than projected.

 

Robert Dahlgren took pole position again and two podiums. He finished second in the first heat and third in the second. Tommy Rustad claimed a third and a fourth place. Richard Göransson in a BMW won the first heat and Thed Björk, also in a BMW, won the second one.

 

100 points left to fight for and wide open

 

With two rounds to go, Robert Dahlgren is trailing Richard Göransson with 17 points. A heat win is worth 25 points and the points of both drivers are combined in the team championship.  

 

Next round takes place at Ring Knutstorp on September 18. It is followed by the Grande Finale at Mantorp Park on October 2, where Volvo Polestar secured both the driver and team title in 2009. The Volvo team is determined to claim gold again and the chase is on.
