K-PAX Racing released the first image of their new Volvo race car for the 2011 World Challenge GT based on the S60 model. The car is a four-wheel-drive S60 tunred into a full-on racer with a massive aero kit and racing interior. Technical details of it are yet to be released.
The new all-wheel-drive Volvo S60s will be introduced at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, in late April for the fourth round of the World Challenge schedule.
World Challenge features cars from the world?s most popular manufacturers – race-prepped versions of the cars driven on the streets. Sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing, World Challenge races at North America?s premier road and temporary street courses. Look at it as the American BTCC!
“For the first three races, we?ll run the body style that took us to last year?s championships,” said Jim Haughey, Team Owner of K-PAX Racing. “Once fans see the new cars, I think they?ll be very impressed.”
The 2011 World Challenge season begins with two races in St. Petersburg, Fla., the weekend of March 25-27. The World Challenge is North America?s top production car-based racing series. Divided into three classes (World Challenge GT, World Challenge GTS, and World Challenge Touring Car), each race features a thrilling standing start, adrenaline-filled, door-to-door action and world-class drivers.
