AlessandroC should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Volvo S40 BTCC

Hi to everybody, I hope to write this post in the right section.

I'm looking for "technical" pictures about Volvo S40 BTCC. Engine, suspensions, chassis, ecc

Someone can help me?

Best regards

It was 20+ years ago - they don't exist. Society was different - most people didn't carry an early "brick" mobile phone, let alone one with an 8MP camera wherever they went.

It is a bit of a stretch looking for HD pictures of a 25yr old car though....

Why? Images were still saved on film in those days, and often provide far higher resolution when correctly digitalised than basic modern digital cameras. https://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/film-resolution.htm Film had a lot of disadvantages, but the possibility of HD images is not one of them.

Because there were a lot less HD images being captured and uploaded onto the web in HD format 25 yrs ago.
It may be possible to obtain them, but it will be a bigger challenge than trying to get HD inages of a car from 2 yrs ago.

The issue is not scanning film at high res, it's finding the negatives in the first place. Alessandro is looking for close-up shot of the chassis and engine, that's not something that a fan standing trackside would have been able to take, and at the time not something that most teams would be happy for media photographers to be focusing on.

Alessandro , just out of interest, why are you looking them?

Maybe a long shot, but have you tried to get in contact with Jason Minshaw of DeamTweaks as he was running a 99' ex Rydell S40 a year or 2 ago.

I have a whole host of images of the Volvo S40 supertourer for a project we are doing (suspension, floor area, engine bay, interior etc). I have some setup sheets and TWR technical info too.

PM me and I will get it over to you.

We also did two audio recordings of the car a few years back using a sound recorder and RODE Mics. These can be found below, also some of the images I mentioned are part of the slideshow...
