Townsville Street Race Next Up For Volvo Polestar Racing


Volvo Polestar Racing and drivers Scott McLaughlin and Robert Dahlgren are heading to the Townsville 500 this weekend for a challenging street race.

"I am looking forward to Townsville," said Dahlgren. "It's a street race combined with a permanent race track - I think it will suit the car pretty nicely."

The race weekend features a hectic schedule with three qualifying sessions and three races: two 125 kilometres races on Saturday and one 250km on Sunday.

"It is an awesome event and very tough on the body," said McLaughlin. "I'm looking forward to racing on a street track to really experience the limits."

Townsville marks the second Super Street race format of the year, the first being the season opener in Adelaide where McLaughlin scored Volvo's first podium after a spectacular last lap battle with reigning champion Jamie Whincup.

"Our car is very good on street tracks," said McLaughlin. "It was really good on hard tyres at Adelaide earlier this year, and I have had some good results on this track in the past, so I'm looking forward to having a strong race weekend."

McLaughlin is seventh in the drivers' championship on 1045 points with Shane Van Gisbergen closest to him in sixth position, 66 points ahead.
