Watch: The Lynk & Co TCR Race Car’s On-Track Appearance

Cyan racing has just released the first video of its new Lynk & Co 03 touring car racer on track and looks good dancing across the curbs.

The 03 is Lynk & Co’s first sedan and its first race car. Based on Volvo’s CMA platform (the same one that underpins the XC40) Cyan racing reports that the first tests have been a success.

“The first tests have been promising and the car has shown a lot of potential already in the early stages of development,” said Thed Bjork, 2017’s WTCR Champion. “There is no rest though as the 2019 WTCR season looks like it will be one of the toughest in many years and we have a hectic schedule leading up to the season start in Morocco.”

A 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbo making 350 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, should move the 03’s 1265 kilograms of mass around fairly quickly.

Hoping to take on the 2019 World Touring Car Racing Championship, the 03 will kick off its racing career in Marrakech on April 7.
