K-PAX Racing Volvo S60 Racer Introduced

The Volvo S60 has just received an overdose of madness, as the K-PAX Racing team announced that it will defend its World Challenge GT Manufacturers' and Drivers' 2010 titles this year using an S60-based race car, with two vehicles being entered in the competition.

"For the first three races, we'll run the body style that took us to last year's championships," said Jim Haughey, Team Owner of K-PAX Racing. "Once fans see the new cars, I think they'll be very impressed."

The World Challenge uses vehicles from the world’s most popular producers, with racing incarnation of the vehicles being driven on temporary street courses.

Of course, as soon as we found out about the new development, we wanted to find out what tech goodies the racer comes with. Unfortunately, the details are limited, with the only certainty being that the vehicle will use an all-wheel-drive system.

The S60 race machine will come with multiple aerodynamic tweaks, with the vehicle using elements such as an aggressive front apron, a new hood that uses a massive air intake and a generously-sized rear wing.

The 2011 World Challenge season begins with two races in St. Petersburg, Fla., the weekend of March 25-27. The World Challenge is North America's top production car-based racing series. Divided into three classes (World Challenge GT, World Challenge GTS, and World Challenge Touring Car), each race features a thrilling standing start, adrenaline-filled, door-to-door action and world-class drivers,” stated the press release.
