A pair of TOP-5 finishes for LADA SPORT ROSNEFT in 2016 WTCC opener

Spirits are high at LADA SPORT ROSNEFT at the conclusion of the opening round of the 2016 FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) at Circuit Paul Ricard, as the Russian team was able to demonstrate that it is now more than a match for its rivals with solid points finishes for Nick Catsburg and Hugo Valente (Sunday 3 April).  

In the Opening Race, Valente found himself third on the initial run to Turn 1, while Catsburg and Gabriele Tarquini emerged from a frenetic opening-lap tussle in sixth and tenth respectively. 

Valente latched to the rear of Mehdi Bennani’s Citroen C-Elysee during the first half of the 16-lapper and he did a valiant job of attacking while playing a rear-guard action against the advancing Hondas of Norbert Michelisz and Tiago Monteiro. Sadly, the young Frenchman’s pace started to drop off as tyre wear became an issue and an opportunistic lunge by Michelisz was enough to relieve the LADA driver of third position and also allow Monteiro through. 

Thereafter, Valente turned his attention to the fast-approaching Citroen of Jose-Maria Lopez; the reigning World Champion did his best to force a mistake with some bold moves, but Valente kept a cool head under pressure and fended off the Argentinian brilliantly to collect ten well-deserved championship points for fifth position.  

Catsburg, who previously claimed to need training from teammate and touring car veteran, Tarquini, when it comes to door handle-to-door handle racing, showed great skill and judgement while embroiled in several high-intensity tussles on Sunday morning. 

The Dutch racer traded places with Tom Coronel on lap one and, after locking horns with Monteiro, spent most of the race in pursuit of the Chevrolet driver. Catsburg clearly had more pace, but bided his time. A fair, yet robust passing manoeuvre on the final approach to Turn 1 opened the door to Volvo’s Thed Bjork, but the dispute for eighth place went right down to the flag, with Catsburg coming out on top. 

Tarquini, meanwhile, was doing his utmost to hold back the Citroen of Gregoire Demoustier and the Volvo of Bjork while carefully managing tyre wear by keeping his distance to those ahead of him. However, on his eighth tour of the Southern French circuit, the Italian received a huge, race-ending biff from the wayward Demoustier that destroyed his right-rear suspension, and the Italian’s misfortune would continue on Sunday afternoon, as a collision resulted front-end damage and another retirement. 

His teammates fared a little better on the French Riviera, as a delighted Catsburg kept the top four honest while driving to a solid fifth place and Valente finished seventh following an incredibly busy race against the Citroens of Bennani and Tom Chilton. 

1934649_861966220580238_9215358172124731435_n.jpg

Catsburg said: “I am really happy, because last year the Race of France for us wasn’t very good and now we have come away with some fantastic results and a good haul of points. We couldn’t have dreamt of keeping up with the Citroens in 2015 and today we were right there with them. I still need to work on my starts and my racecraft – in race one I lost some positions while fighting, while in race two was much cleaner and I was able to get into a rhythm – but we can all be very thankful to the LADA team for what they have done over the winter. The drivers all share ideas openly and I think that is helping us move forward. I’m really excited about the next round!”

12472702_861965073913686_3792719496924888894_n.jpg

Valente said: “I’m very happy with how the opening round has panned out. I was disappointed with the outcome of race one; I can’t pretend to be happy with fifth after starting from the front, but I can’t complain too much because we weren’t originally on the reversed grid pole and we came away with solid points. I never got to drive last year’s Vesta, but it’s clear that the team has taken a big step over the winter. I have to step up my game because Nicky (Catsburg) was very fast today, but that’s a good challenge. I have been able to adapt my driving to the LADA Vesta as the weekend has progressed and that has helped in a lot of ways, so I’m encouraged for the rest of the season.”

12924613_861963810580479_1519814697569055562_n.jpg

Tarquini said: “It hasn’t been a good day in terms of the results for me personally, but it has been incredibly positive for LADA SPORT ROSNEFT as a whole. The car was very good and I was very happy with the balance. Nicky (Catsburg) is able to judge the improvements over the winter, because he drove the LADA Vesta at Circuit Paul Ricard last year. We really aren’t very far away from the Hondas and the Citroens and two or three tenths will make a big difference.”

World championship points for Polestar Cyan Racing in WTCC debut

 

2016-04-03

Thed Björk and Fredrik Ekblom scored world championship points in the first ever FIA World Touring Car Championship race weekend of the all-new programme of Polestar Cyan Racing.

 

Thed Björk provided the best show of the weekend in the first race where he climbed from last position on the grid to finish seventh, passing nine cars.

 

”I am really pleased with the weekend. We have got a receipt that we are on pace. We had some issues but that is to be expected and the team has done an amazing work with the car. I can’t wait to get to the next race in Slovakia,” said Björk.

 

Team mate Fredrik Ekblom was next to score world championship points in the second race, crossing the line in tenth position after a tough fight with, among others, former world champion Rob Huff.

 

”We have had a good first race and I am delighted leave Paul Ricard with points. The car is fast and I am longing for us to sink our teeth in all the data we have gathered in order to sharpen our knives even further ahead of the rest of the season,” said Ekblom.

 

Some technical issued came with the debut weekend, with a broken rear suspension for Ekblom in race one after an incident and an electrical issue for Björk in race two.

 

The total results of the season start are above expectation for the team, most importantly showing competitive pace with an all new car and programme of Polestar Cyan Racing.

 

”We can conclude that our setup with a Swedish car, Swedish drivers and an all-Swedish crew is working. Our mission for the first race was to gather data. We have done more than that with Thed giving us a great show in the first race and both drivers scoring world championship points,” said Alexander Murdzevski Schedvin, Head of Motorsport at Polestar.

 

The next WTCC race will be held in two weeks at the Slovakiaring, April 16-17th.

These days LADA SPORT ROSNEFT drivers Gabriele Tarquini, Nick Catsburg and Hugo Valente take part in the tests of LADA Vesta at Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal

The Russian WTCC squad spent three days (6-8 March) at Autódromo Internacional do Algarve in Portugal, conducting tests of the updated LADA Vesta TC1 ahead of the FIA WTCC 2016 season. Team drivers Gabriele Tarquini, Nick Catsburg and Hugo Valente extracted the maximum from the dry warm weather lapping consistently over the three days, gaining a better understanding of a renewed version of the Vesta TC1

Positive results for LADA SPORT ROSNEFT after Portugal pre-season testing
 

The Russian WTCC squad spent three days (6-8 March) at Algarve International Circuit in Portugal, conducting tests of the updated LADA Vesta TC1 ahead of the FIA WTCC 2016 season. Team drivers Gabriele Tarquini, Nick Catsburg and Hugo Valente extracted the maximum from the dry warm weather lapping consistently over the three days, gaining a better understanding of a renewed version of the Vesta TC1. 

Gabriele Tarquini: «I drove the car the first day of the session. We were lucky with the weather; it was completely dry day, though the only problem was the strong wind. I did fifty laps without any mechanical problems. We tested different configuration and geometry on the front and rear suspension. For me it was a great opportunity to discover the car as I only drove the Vesta in rainy Magny-Cours where the temperatures have been very low. In parallel we continued to improve the engine performance and torque delivery. I'm happy to see that the car is sensitive to the changes we made. I also followed the test with Nick and Hugo because I wanted to share with them the feelings of the car and the development plan for the first race».

Nick Catsburg: «I was very happy to be back at the wheel of the LADA Vesta. The team have worked effectively on the updates, the car feels really good. We put a lot of focus and made big progress in terms of standing starts, which was our weak point last year and often made the races more difficult for us as we could not capitalize on the cars qualifying speed. The new engine management system has been seriously upgraded, and this year we will be more effective at the start of the race for sure. Also the traction is much better now and the general power delivery has been improved. In general, thanks to the major changes in the engine and suspension, the Vesta looks really promising ahead of the WTCC 2016 season. It is also nice to see Gabriele's experience apready having an influence in a very positive way."

Hugo Valente: «I'm happy with how the testing went so far. I had limited dry running in the car so far so it was very important for me to do some dry testing and do a lot of laps. It was very useful in terms of both getting the knowledge of the car and regaining the confidence of driving the race car again as since the final WTCC race in Qatar  last year I had not got my hands on a proper steering wheel. The updates brought by Lada Sport and Oreca seem to be working nicely. I had no experience of the 2015 car so it's hard for me to compare, but the feedback from Gabriele and Nicky is positive on both engine and suspension so hopefully that Vesta will show a better pace and improvement in terms of reliability and consistency on the long runs. I am very much looking forward to beginning of the season, it will be the first time we will be racing with the other cars so we will get a better idea of where we are in terms of performance».

The team will have one more test session in mid-March at Magny-Cours Circuit before the the season kicks off at Paul Ricard Circuit in France (1-3 April).

Lada Sport Rosneft driver line-up confirmed for WTCC 2016

Lada Sport Rosneft driver line-up confirmed for WTCC 2016

LADA SPORT ROSNEFT is pleased to announce a refreshed driver line-up for the 2016 FIA World Touring Car Championship, featuring the exciting and emerging Dutchman Nick Catsburg, the highly experienced Italian Gabriele Tarquini and former privateer, Hugo Valente.

 

Catsburg first joined LADA SPORT midway through the 2015 season, just prior to the Russian manufacturer squad’s home round in Moscow after forging a highly successful career in GT and endurance racing.

 

The Dutch racer showed great potential, taking his new-for-2015 LADA Vesta to two fourth-places and several top ten results and shining in qualifying trim by breaking through into the top-five shootout on three occasions.

 

Tarquini has the 2009 FIA World, 2003 European and 1994 British Touring Car Championship titles to his name and, while he has a background in Formula 1, the Italian ace stands as one of the most experienced touring car drivers in the world, having amassed 20 race wins and numerous podium finishes since the WTCC’s inception.

 

Valente, meanwhile, has already proven to be one of the most promising WTCC drivers, as, despite his young age, the Frenchman has visited the winners’ rostrum several times during his three seasons at the pinnacle of international touring car racing.

 

First impressions of the LADA Vesta from Gabriele and Hugo have been positive and they have fitted in quickly with the team.

 

Of course, LADA SPORT ROSNEFT would like to thank Rob Huff for his two-year cooperation that brought brilliant wins, podium finishes for the LADA brand, and the team wishes him success in his future endeavors.

 

LADA SPORT is currently conducting a thorough winter testing programme at its technical base in Magny-Cours and other European racetracks, and its engineers will bring significant updates to the LADA Vesta TC1 for the first round of the 2016 WTCC season, including a host of new suspension, chassis and steering components and a new evolution of the car’s 380bhp turbocharged engine.

Vila Real welcomes FIA WTCC for inaugural event marking European finale

 This weekend the FIA World Touring Car Championship arrives for the first time in the historic city of Vila Real, Portugal.

Inaugurated in 1931, history has witnessed plenty of racing action through the winding streets over the years including legendary names such as Sir Stirling Moss, however this will be the first time the venue has staged an FIA world championship – making it a complete unknown for the touring car icons, including local favourite, Tiago Monteiro. 

Located in northern Portugal, East of Porto [Monteiro’s hometown], Vila Real – translated as Royal Town – provides a 4.7km temporary track with a sure-to-be close concoction of over twenty turns of varying speeds and elevation changes. On first impression this unknown high-speed city track,which Monteiro labels a ‘mix of Macau and Nurburgring-Nordschleife’, may seem a daunting proposition, but with a blank sheet of paper yet to hold the WTCC records, the race to be the Portuguese victor is well and truly on. 

11218974_1096641763698564_3352057807363989917_n.jp

Also marking the finale of the WTCC’s European journey as the series prepares for a summer break following this weekend before commencing fly-away races in Asia, the picturesque city provides the perfect backdrop from which to draw a climactic season to a pause.

Tiago Monteiro: “I know very little about this track. I came to watch some races when I was 8 or 9 years old but like everyone else, I’ve never raced here. This track is very high-speed, but unlike some of the other street tracks we’ve been to, it is very flowing. There are a lot of direction changes in sweeping corners which makes it quite unusual for a street race, so I am really looking forward to getting out on track.

 “Being my home event there is extra pressure and a more demanding schedule, but it’s positive. It means a lot to have local support so I will be focusing 100% and hoping to put on an exciting, successful performance for them.”

 

Gabriele Tarquini: “I have no experience of this track. Preparation wise, I’ve watched a few on-board cameras from other races so it will be interesting to see how we run here. It’s difficult to predict results, but I think we have to remain cautious. It’s a fast track with long corners, not tight and twisty as we come to expect with other city circuits, but I am really looking forward to racing here – I like city tracks and it is good to know that everyone starts from zero. It’s going to be a real challenge for us all, not just once we’re on track competing but also in finding the right set up – the track walk with my engineers will be really important.
