LADA Sport LUKOIL tested new solutions for LADA Granta-2014
Jul 27, 2013, 7:44 AM

The FIA World Touring Car Championship team is looking toward the 2014 season.

LADA Sport LUKOIL team completed one-day test at Magny-Cours. James Thompson hit the French track at the wheel of LADA Granta fitted with new features complying with 2014 WTCC technical requirements. Magny-Cours is the location of LADA Sport LUKOIL technical base and it hosts most of the team’s tests during the season.

Victor Shapovalov: “We are already working on the evolution of the LADA Granta in view of the 2014 WTCC season. This car will have a more racing look, more power, more stability and drivability. After the first half of the season, we have a clear understanding how to improve the car. During the races we tested the car on various types of circuits, now we know all the strengths and weak points of LADA Granta and are able to work out the program of its development”.

The 2014 WTCC season is to start later than usual, in the mid-April (though the official calendar is not confirmed yet). Thus, the teams will get extra time to prepare cars to meet new technical requirements of the Championship.

At the moment two LADA Granta cars are on their way to Argentina, which will host a first overseas WTCC round on 3-4 August.
