A Mecca for classic Volvos
Quite a few enthusiasts started the meet already Friday, driving the full range of new Volvo models on the track of Volvo Cars Demo Center. That experience was combined with a factory tour, seeing the all-new Volvo XC90 being built.
Saturday was rally day, 150 cars drove 120 km on beautiful country roads answering tricky questions along the way. The day finished with a barbecue followed by a lecture about Volvo´s motor sport history by Per Olof Jondelius, one of the most knowledgeable Volvo historians around.
The highlight, however, was of course the big meet on the Sunday. A number of anniversaries were acknowledged: PV36 “Carioca” 80 years, Volvo 66 40 years and Volvo 780 30 years.
The fact that Volvo in 1985 won the European touring car championship - as well as the German DTM - with the 240 Turbo was highlighted with a parade of “Group A” cars.
