Volvo’s back in the FIA World Touring Car Championship, and they’re back with a bang. Is this new S60 Polestar TC1 race car the most badass-looking Volvo ever?
The inaugural, 1987 season of the World Touring Car Championship was - without any doubt - a disaster that put the series into sleep for 18 years and the first race had it all. This is its story.

More from the WTCC race yesterday. The first 60 seconds with driver interviews and ball busting is hilarious. Yeah, the whole NASCAR looking lineup on the track was frustrating, but the drivers thought they were within their rights to do so. Not surprised that FIA spanked them though. Looked shitty.
