Re: FORD IS A PARTNER IN THE "RONDE DU VENTOUX" - VOLVO? (JRL)

So do you really care?

However, since you mentioned that you were involved in racing a few threads back and I'm a green horn in this field. Answer me this? Why has Volvo avoided this race? You don't have to answer no pressure here Jim - leave it to others if you want - don't want you stressed here. ROLF

Seems Volvo hasn't entered this race for some times.
122S (1960 � 1965)
122 (1963)
P1800 S (1965)
PV544 (1960 � 1965)

If they were to enter it would be interesting to see the rivalry. I'm sure Volvo could give anyone a good run for the money. If it was up to me I'd be in there like a dirty shirt as Volvo needs to be in peoples faces. It's just my opinion though and I'm green eh.

I haven't heard of it either. But, it seems to be an old race dating way back into 1900's. Volvo was a participant in the sixties which tweaked my interest.
Oh well guess it's best to leave sleeping dogs lay. Don't want to dig up any old bones... chuckle, chuckle.

Hillclimbs, especially in Europe, were really popular up to the late '60s/early '70s, with lots of factory teams. Unfortunately they then they went away due to problems similar to those with the real road races such as the Targa Florio.
