Silverstone, UK -- The second race in Silverstone gave Volvo its first podium in the revived FIA European Touring Car Championship. The series is now heading for Brno, where the Volvo 240 Turbo won the 4-hours race in 1985 and 1986. Could Rydell claim another success for the Swedish manufacturer? <BR>“I would like to be able to do that, but for the moment I do not think we will be in a position to beat Alfa Romeo,” explained the Swedish driver, who led the Silverstone Race One for six laps. “It was a good result for me and the team, but we still have to find more on the engine side to cope with the Alfas. In Brno we will have some improvements, which will hopefully push us a little closer, but I think the gap is too big to be filled so quickly. Also, we have never been to Brno before, and this will delay our work on the set-up of the car. I would be happy to stay ahead of the BMW cars again.”
