Volvo pulling out of V8 Supercars

Supercars CEO James Warburton has made the following statement in response to an announcement by Polestar about its future in the sport beyond 2016.

“It is a disappointing decision by Polestar especially given the positive discussions being held locally about Volvo’s continued involvement in the series. However we understand that ultimately this was a global decision.

"We have really enjoyed the association with Volvo and the success they have enjoyed in Supercars. Garry Rogers Motorsport has indicated that it is committed to race Volvos in the 2016 and 2017 seasons and we will continue to have discussions with Volvo Car Australia about its ongoing involvement in the sport."
