Baselining The Volvo S60R Autocross Performance Reveals Huge Potential (Nowhere To Go But Up!)

We have to start somewhere!

The journey to motoring greatness starts here. The sole reason for buying the 2005 Volvo S60R was to turn it into a racecar, and what better way to baseline its performance by comparing it against others at a good old fashioned autocross.

After looking at the results, there’s no where else to go but UP! Using my existing winter tires didn’t exactly do the S60R justice, as I begged for grip throughout this entire autocross session. However, I did manage to learn that the S60R has a HUGE amount of potential
