ipd teams up with K-Pax Racing

2010-03-09 - ipd staff

We are pleased to announce our sponsorship of the K-Pax racing team. We are excited to have this relationship with this decorated group and we look forward to their success. We will be posting regular updates on our website so look forward to that.

"For the 2009 season, 2008 GT Driver Champion Randy Pobst and 2005 GT Driver Champion Andy Pilgrim, will team up in newly built 2.5L Turbo 2009 Volvo S60 AWD to make a run for the Manufacterer Championship. With support from Volvo North America, 3R Racing has built a competitive new platform from the chassis up. Designing, machining and assembling most of the car in house, with the motors being built by Mahle, and transmissions by Weismann.

"We here at 3R are very excited at the opportunity we have been given to engineer and build all-new cars and bring a new manufacturer back to the series"; 3R Racing owner Bob Raub said. We know that this is not an easy task or one that will not be without its share of problems and failings, but through those problems and failings we will work hard to have success for Jim, Volvo, Randy and Andy."

The above excerpt from our webpage has since changed. It should be noted that after many problems with the Weismann transmissions last season (we removed and rebuilt them 14 times) the gears and internal components are now being provided by Emco. Thus far they are working superbly! We are pleased to welcome IPD to our list of sponsors and hope to do them proud. Regards, Michael Wong, Partner Relations, K-PAX Racing

I am pleased with this announcement. K-PAX is a great team, and fun to watch and follow. I hope the ipd/K-PAX deal will result in some performance tips for us S60R owners, too.

How much for the vented hood? It finishes out the body kit nicely. Ditto on the performance upgrades for us S60R owners...

After seeing these cars and their success it makes me want to get back into racing Volvos! I like the body work! If it was available and I could convince my wife to let me put it on her S60 it would look really cool!
