Volvo Polestar Racing Aiming To Bounce Back In Queensland


The last V8 Supercars round in Townsville was a testing weekend for Volvo Polestar Racing drivers Scott McLaughlin and Robert Dahlgren. But the team and drivers are aiming to bounce back this weekend at Queensland Raceway, with changes made to the Volvo S60 race cars.

"We won here last year and we have a faster car now than last year. So I am pretty confident ahead of this weekend," said McLaughlin.

Swedish driver Dahlgren makes his debut at Queensland Raceway and is hoping to score his best result of the year so far.

"It looks like a nice track with quite a few overtaking opportunities. I am really looking forward to it and can't wait to race there," said Dahlgren.

While McLaughlin was competitive in qualifying in the last race the speed for a top three position wasn't there, something the Kiwi hopes to have changed during the three-week break.

"Our qualifying average is still good and that is very important," McLaughlin said. "We are losing a little bit over a race distance, but not much. The team has made a solid amount of changes during the break, and hopefully it will be enough to be on par with the top runners. Our aim is still for the top five and to keep the points coming through."
