Volvo - Swedish Touring Car Championship

Polestar Racing, Volvo’s official works team, is a relatively new team by motorsport standards, but they’ve certainly had their fair share of success. Tommy Rustad won the STCC Drivers’ title in 2009, and the outfit went on to clinch the Teams’ championship in 2010. Polestar won the Manufacturers’, Teams’, and Drivers’ titles in the 2012 TTA Elite Racing League – the new STCC. In 2013, Polestar repeated the incredible feat winning all three titles and winning the Manufacturers’ title by a margin of more than 200 points!
