Kiwi V8 Supercars star Scott McLaughlin will contest a round of the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship in Sweden this weekend.

McLaughlin, who won both races at the latest V8 Supercar round at Phillip Island, will drive a Polestar Cyan Racing Volvo at the Skövde Airport Race - the opening round of the series.

McLaughlin is off contract at the end of the season and is already in hot demand with Holden Racing Team and DJR Team Penske in the running to acquire his services along with his existing Volvo team.
