As a Works team, they always have 3 cars--2 "main" cars and a backup. I don't think the backup is ever used unless something happens to the main cars. As a result, I wonder if the backup car has any bugs that were worked out in the "main" cars? I can only assume the STCC team got the backup?

I don´t know if the car is a "backup"-car.

But the STW-Honda have only been used at one race by Tarquini

Two more independ. team will drive the STCC:

Jens Edman ,who drived in the Volvo-works team last year, will drive a Volvo S40 -98 in an independent-team.

Jan Lindblom will drive a Ford Mondeo-97b (Tomas Johansson raced the car last year in the Ford Works-team)

I wonder how did Jens get that Volvo? On loan or did he buy it for a cheap price? I thought Volvo never sold their cars to Privateers. They kept all the cars as Works entries only? OTOH, I think they were "forced" to sell a S40 to one SEATCZC team due to sponsor pressure?

I don´t know if he borrow the car or if he have bought it.

Mattias Ekström drived a Volvo 850 in the STCC 1997 in a privateer-team (but I think that they borrowed the car). I have not heard anything about other privateers who have drived Volvos.

Kmchow, a big Finnish company own two Volvo S40 -98. One car was drived by Nilsson last year and the second car is from Australia. A Finnish driver will mayby drive the second Volvo later in the season.

Does the finnish company's name start with an "E"? The SEATCZC Volvo is owned by a company that starts with "E"?

Yeah, it would be sad to lose track and control of the cars though,say the 850.

I believe that you mean Ericsson?

Ericsson is Swedish, but there is a big Finnish company that starts with "N".

Now wouldn't it be interesting if the SEATCZC based Swedish Ericsson Volvo takes on the STCC based Finnish NOKIA Volvo?? =) Hmm, this is unusual that a sponsor would end up buying the car?

Has this occurred ever before? I wonder how much it cost them?

I´m not 100% sure that it is Nokia who have bough the cars yet. But there is only one BIG company in Finnland and it is Nokia.
