How difficult it is to break a record, but it is even more beat him and say nothing. The less is curious reaction Volvo Polestar after beating the record of the cathedral engine, and I keep quiet for about a year.
In 2016, when the WTCC visited Nurburgring, Volvo Polestar WTCC team stayed behind to make private test runs, and they managed to beat the lap record with the S60 Polestar street stopping the clock in 7:51.1 in the category of road vehicles 4 doors.
A very remarkable fact that has been secret until this year when a few days before the races in the Green Hell has been revealed. No doubt both the Volvo WTCC team as the Swedish automaker engineers have learned a lot with this record and apply it to their models as soon as possible.
For us, the record is spectacular, but saved for them is still haberselo. Maybe it's a good strategy that lets you see the evolution of your competitors and then give them in the face when you see that go in the right direction, but you're better.
