Game over for Dahlgren

HE came to help develop the S60 as a competitive race car, but now Volvo Polestar Racing’s Swedish export, Robert Dahlgren, will leave the V8 Supercars Championship following the final race of the season, the Sydney 500.

Dahlgren has been a key factor in the establishment of Volvo Polestar Racing in their successful debut V8 Supercars season, and his global motor sport experience will see him continue to play a critical role in a number of new assignments in Sweden with both Polestar and Volvo Car Group in 2015 and onward.

“To be involved in such a successful debut V8 Supercars season has been incredibly rewarding,” said Dahlgren. “I am proud to have played a key role in the development of the new car and engine,” he said.

“The entire GRM team – and the Australian motor sport fans – have all been incredibly welcoming to me and my family. The V8 Supercars Championship is without doubt one of the best in the world and I leave Australia with many happy memories.”

GRM owner Garry Rogers complimented the departing driver, saying the team would not be in the strong position it is today if it wasn’t for Dahlgren’s input.

“Robert has a very good engineering mind and his knowledge on the processes within both Volvo and Polestar have been extremely helpful with our transition to a factory Volvo Polestar team. I wish him, his wife Nina and young son and daughter all the best in their return to Sweden”.

Volvo Polestar Racing is yet to announce its driver line-up for next year, but rumours persist that current DJR pilot David Wall will follow new Volvo sponsor Wilson Security to the team in 2015.
