Volvo V60 Polestar Leads the Pack as WTCC Safety Car

It just seems inevitable that a Volvo will end up as a safety car somewhere, in this case the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) which starts in the season-opening Race of France at Circuit Paul Ricard on April 1-3rd. The chosen model is a V60 Polestar.

The vehicle is equipped with a roll cage, rescue and communication equipment in order to meet the rigorous technical and safety requirements set by the FIA and WTCC promoter Eurosport Events.

“Last October we welcomed Polestar’s long-term commitment to the WTCC as a manufacturer. Now we welcome Polestar as the new Official Safety Car partner of the WTCC, an exclusive opportunity which will allow them to promote their extremely safe and high-performing V60 Polestar flagship model around the world,” said François Ribeiro, Head of Eurosport Events.
