Volvo will enter its Swedish Touring Car Championship team Polestar at Anderstorp on July 28-29 to support WTCC´s green agenda.

Since environmental concern is a core value of Volvo, WTCC really hit their sweet-spot by giving a green light to alternative fuels.
Volvo name is now written in history books as being the first automaker who opened the road in using alternative fuels.The Swedish automaker managed to reach an understanding with STCC and the Swedish Motorsport Authority that would allow teams to use alternative fuels in the STCC, also a FIA Super 2000 regulations championship.
