Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rydell on track
During the last edition of the Mugello Motor Fest has made its
appearance this beautiful and ex Rickard Rydell official Volvo 850 R BTCC.
A rarity and an unexpected surprise to see run the car in the racing cars
time sessions. In the hands of Rydell the Volvo 850 R won the English
Touring car championship in 1998 and in 1995 the driver made 13 pole
position in 24 races!
Strangely, the season of the 850 series began in collaboration with TWR in
1994 using the station-wagon variant that behaved fairly well. Since 1995,
it passed to employ a sedan with good results until it reaches the BTCC
title in 1998. The car is equipped with a 5-cylinder 2000 CC with more than
290 hp and 6-speed sequential gearbox. As you can see extensive use of
carbon fiber inside and pneumatic system for lifting.
Durante l'ultima edizione del Mugello motor Fest ha fatto la sua comparsa
questa splendida Volvo 850 R BTCC ex Rickard Rydell, una vera rarità ed
un'inaspettata sorpresa vederla girare nei turni dedicate alle auto da
corsa. Auto ex ufficiale, in mano a Rydell la Volvo 850 R ha vinto nel 1998
il campionato inglese turismo e nella stagione 1995 partì dalla pole su 24
gare! Stranamente la stagione agonistica della serie 850 iniziò grazie
alla collaborazione con la TWR nel 1994 utilizzando la variante
station-wagon che si comportò discretamente bene. Dal 1995 si passò ad
impiegare la versione berlina con buoni risultati fino al raggiungimento
titolo BTCC appunto nel 1998. L'auto è dotata del 5 cilindri di 2.000 CC
portato ad oltre 290 CV e cambio sequenziale a 6 marce. Come potete vedere

PCV System Check: 5 to 15 minutes. (Positive Crankcase Ventalation System)
The Volvo PCV system is one of the most neglected maintenance items on the
I5 cars. Failing to maintain this system can cause major oil leaks. I blew
one of my cam seals one evening and lost 2-1/2 quarts of oil in just 2
miles. If you do not know when it was serviced last, replace the system
Volvo 850 Wagon -vs- 69 Camero
Sure looks like the Camero is going to win...but things are not often what
they seem. The Volvo catches and passes the camero to take the win.

MY VOLVO 850 BTCC 1/18 By AUTOart -THE BEAST-
In 1995 the rules of the cars design were changed. Since the 1995-season it
was allowed to have front- and rear wings but those wings weren't allowed
to pass the rear bumper or be higher than the roofline. These new
regulations only allowed Volvo to use a 850 saloon instead of the 850
Estate. When Volvo should appear with the Estate (including a rear wing) at
the starting grid it could be banned.
Because the saloon with rear wing had a much better downforce than the
Estate without rear spoiler the choice for the 1995 season was easy: Volvo
was going to race with the 850 saloon. In 1995 there were also some other
changes (besides the front and rear wings): a catalytic converter was now a
mandatory. Because Jan Lammers didn't want to race another season at the
BTCC Tim Harvey (England) took over Lammers' place at Volvo.
The 1995 BTCC season was much better than 1994 for Volvo: Rydell took
several pole positions and won four races! Rydell was a title contender
that year but unfortunately didn't win the title. Harvey also had a good
season with 2 wins and several podium finishes. It was a very good season.
1996: even more success for Volvo!
In 1996 the team name was changed from Volvo 850 Racing to TWR/Volvo 850
Racing. Tim Harvey left the team and signed at Peugeot, who entered the
BTCC with the brand new 406. The young talented driver and Formula 3
champion Kelvin Burt (England) replaced Harvey. Besides the new driver and
slightly changed team name there were some other small changes: Michelin
was the new supplier of tires and OZ Wheels was replaced by BBS (the size
went from 18-inch to 19-inch). The front brakes (discs and calipers) were
changed from Brembo to AP. The steering system was changed to a new version
made by TWR.
That year was better than 1995: Rickard Rydell took 5 pole positions and
won 4 races, which delivered him a thirth place in the final standings (194
points). Burt finished 11th in the final standings (66 points) and won one
race. TWR/Volvo 850 Racing managed to finish third in the Constructors
1996 was the final year for the 850 Racing car. It was replaced by the
Volvo S40 (S40R) in 1997. One of the 850s that was used in the 1996
BTCC-season was used in the STCC (Swedish Touring Car Championship) in
1997. After that season the car was moved to the Volvo Museum in Sweden.
