Robert Dahlgren will return to Volvo Polestar Cyan Racing for the final round of the World Touring Car Championship season at Qatar next week.
The Swede, who finished second in the 2016 STCC standings, raced for the team in Portugal and Argentina before resuming testing in between races.
”To put the work into use from the development programme by racing in the season finale feels really rewarding for me and I can’t wait for it to begin,” said Dahlgren.
Dahlgren will join teammate Thed Bjork in Qatar, who secured his first WTCC win at the previous round at Shanghai.
Polestar Cyan Racing has confirmed three cars for 2017, but has yet to announce its line-up.
