WTCC season for the Vesta TC1
LADA President Bo Andersson commented on the new racing LADA Vesta TC1 cars, which have already arrived in Argentina to participate in the first round of FIA World Touring Car Championship (6-8 March).
“The new racing challenger, based on the Vesta model, looks really impressive and our drivers confirm its huge potential on the race track," said Mr.Andersson. "The interesting thing is that just a couple of days before the track debut of the Vesta TC1, we launched a pre-production series of the street version of the Vesta in Russia, where mass production of this model will start in September 2015.
"The Vesta is an all-Russian product, conceived, designed and built at our factory in Russia. As for the racing Vesta TC1, the design and the majority of the engineering was done by LADA and LADA SPORT, although we partly involved our long-term partner and Motorsport Consultants, Oreca. They assist us with some racing components in conjunction with our designers and engineers around a Russian-built Vesta chassis. Oreca is our engine supplier; their new 380bhp turbo engine was significantly improved in comparison with the unit used in the LADA Granta in 2014. Our French partners also assisted with aerodynamics, which are more efficient and now provide much higher straight line speed and better performance overall. However, the LADA Vesta racing car is a certainly a Russian endeavour. I wish our LADA SPORT ROSNEFT team a very successful season, and I believe we will gain more victories this year."
*LADA manufacturing facilities are located in Togliatti and Izhevsk.
LADA SPORT ROSNEFT is a racing team, participating in the World Touring Car Championship since 2015 with specially designed LADA Vesta WTCC cars.
