See How Polestar Cyan Racing Benefits Volvo

What they don’t mention in this video is that racing is also fun. Don’t tell the boss.

Though Volvo has just announced that Polestar is coming into its own and will be dropping the Volvo logo from its own Polestar-branded cars, it looks like Volvo Cars will still benefit from its close family connection to Polestar Cyan Racing.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Cyan Racing team, we’d like to introduce you.

Cyan Racing is the team in charge of the Polestar (and therefore Volvo) factory race efforts. Currently embroiled in battles for the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship and the FIA World Touring Car Championship, Cyan Racing is performing well this season. To put it in a nutshell, touring car racing involves racing tuned-up, modified production cars, with some regulations to level the playing field.

In the STCC series, Carl Philip Bernadotte (Prince of Sweden, Duke of Värmland, and fourth in line to the throne after his older sister Crown Princess Victoria) leads the driver standings with 43 points. Teammate Thed Björk is currently in seventh.

In the WTCC series, Volvo leads the manufacturer standings. Thed Björk, running both series, is a very close second in the driver standings with 160 points to Tiago Monteiro’s 164. Björk’s teammate Nicky Catsburg is just behind in third position at the moment, with 154 points, and Néstor Girolami is in ninth place so far.

The next WTCC race is in Argentina on July 14-16. It will be the sixth of 10 races in the 2017 season, and we hope that the Polestar Cyan Racing team keeps up its momentum!
