His Volvo C30 Drive car has been accepted by the Touring Car Committee according to article 10 b) of the Sporting Regulations, and on the basis of the homologation papers issued by Sweden’s National Sporting Authority SBF.

The relevant article regulates the participation of cars complying with the technical regulations of national championships, preventing them scoring points and imposing a 20-kilo ballast.

This means that Björk and his Volvo will not be awarded points and will not be eligible to take part in the Q2 Qualifying.
