Thed Björk, Fredrik Ekblom and Robert Dahlgren have assumed the entire weight of the development of the Volvo S60 Polestar TC1, vehicle with which the Swedish brand will enter the WTCC in 2016. Although the three have collaborated in a very active way, the firm made clear that his arrival in the World of Cars was going to be done with two drives of the Volvo S60, which left one of them out of the equation. it Seems that the chosen to stay away is Robert Dahlgren, every time that the Swedish has been confirmed by Polestar Cyan Racing to compete in the STCC.
Robert Dahlgren played the Scandinavian Touring car in 2016 with the Swedish firm, which in turn will rule out almost definitively as a candidate to compete in the WTCC next season, time and calendar. Despite being the rider with the most international experience of the three, since she was the one chosen for the frequent incursions of Volvo in the WTCC and also played a season in the V8 Supercars, it seems that he must fight at ‘home’. In fact, up to three appointments of the STCC coincide with the evidence of the World of Cars at the Nürburgring, Motegi and Shanghai.
Unless major surprise, there is a way for Thed Björk and Fredrik Ekblom are the official drivers of Volvo in the WTCC during 2016. A team that has shown great speed since Björk is four times champion of the STCC, the same number of titles he has accumulated Ekblom, although his last crown dating back to 2012. Despite this, the gallons purchased in the Championship Scandinavian seem to be enough to be the chosen partner for the World’s passenger Cars, while Robert Dahlgren will be in tandem with the Prince Charles Philip of Sweden in the STCC.
