When you think about it…Volvo’s should be used as Safety Cars in every motorsport discipline. They are after all known to be THE safest cars around, supposedly even becoming death proof in the next few years!

We love the V60 Polestar, it’s an epic bit of kit. Deservingly it is now the WTCC Safety Car of 2016.

The only alteration the car has undergone is the fitment of an FIA approved roll cage. Some safety and comms gear has also been thrown in the back too.

This new addition goes hand in glove with a pair of new Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 race cars that will be part of a multi year program in the WTCC.

You can see all three in action on April 1-3rd at Paul Ricard for the inaugural 2016 race.
