K-Pax Racing debuted its new bodystyle Volvo S60R GT race car at Mosport International Raceway this weekend, but the stunning new sheetmetal wasn’t accompanied by a similar performance.
Competing in the fifth and sixth rounds of the SCCA World Challenge series, the new bodystyle car was piloted by series rookie Alex Figge, who managed a 10th place finish in the GT Class in the first of two races on a doubleheader weekend. The No. 9 K-Pax racing Volvo then retired early from the second race of the weekend due to mechanical issues.
As for the P-Pax Volvo C30 entries in the TC Class, there were some ups and downs for the weekend with Aaron Povoledo taking 3rd in the first race, and landing his second straight podium. Povoledo seemed poised to improve on that finish on Sunday’s race, but was disqualified by race officials for jumping the start.
Rounds seven and eight of the World Challenge series take place August 5-7 at Mid Ohio.
