A family affair

Volvo and Australian motorsport have a long and rich relationship, founded on a passion for competition and success.

Volvo has a strong history in Australian motorsport. With Robbie Francevic winning the 1986 Australian Touring Car Championship, Peter Brock mastering the Volvo 850, and legendary Jim Richards winning the Bathurst 1000 behind the wheel of a Volvo S40 in 1998.

After a hiatus, in 2014, Volvo and Polestar Racing joined forces with Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM) debuting the Volvo Polestar S60 in the Championship. It proved to be a very successful year, winning five races, taking 10 podiums, claiming 10 pole positions, and ending the year fifth in the Championship and being awarded the coveted Barry Sheene Medal. 2015 was a character building year for the team, filled with ups and down, so they are determined to come back faster and stronger in 2016.
