VOLVO S60 T5 Track Car
We purchased this car from Steve Collet at ST Motorsports back in 2014. ST Motorsports have extensive experience of supporting track teams and building and preparing track cars, and when we got the car it was prepared and ready to go.
The guys at Armston Vehicle Services in Cosby – Doug, Kev and Stu – then got to work on it, replacing the wheels and hubs, shifting the battery and modifying the starter to a simpler push button.
Bryd-Ayd Controls – Terry and the gang – then donated and fitted a new electronic throttle control system, that makes the throttel more responsive and easier to use.
