Welcome to Volvo Jo– THE Swedish car fansite. This is a new, personal “pet” project of mine that’s going to allow me to share my bizarre love for quirky Swedish machinery with the rest of the world. Or- more likely- the few friends and family members who found their way here by clicking a link on Facebook or Twitter, you know?
I’m hoping to start this new blog off strong with a few fun posts that are worth sharing, featuring great stories with high-quality pictures and videos. To that end, I’d like to share this video of Scott McLaughlin’s epic debut in the Australian V8 Supercars racing series behind the wheel of the Valvoline Volvo S60 during race 2 of the 2014 Clipsal 500.
McLaughlin puts in a stellar drive, battling to the very end against a series champion at the height of his powers. It’s an epic battle, and these guys take it to the very end and makes this one of the best races I’ve ever seen.
You can check out the race’s highlights for yourself, below, then let us know what you think about the video (and whether or not you think the world needs another Swedish car fan site, I guess) in the comments at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
