Lada Sport Rosneft 

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).

WTCC testes em Vallelunga - dia 2

WTCC testes em Vallelunga - dia 2


Honda Racing WTCC adicionou 4 fotos novas.

End of day two, which has been affected by rain at Vallelunga. Michelisz Norbert has ended up P6, but has amassed over 400km of useful running over the two days.





"Michelisz: No need for ultimate speed in WTCC testing

 03/03/2016 22:00

New factory Honda driver Norbert Michelisz has said rapid lap times weren’t the priority during official pre-season FIA World Touring Car Championship testing at Vallelunga this week.


Michelisz set the fifth best overall time yesterday and was sixth quickest outright today in his Honda Racing Team JAS Civic.


But by completing 96 laps of the 4.085-kilometre Rome track, Michelisz insists it was a case of mission accomplished. “It’s been a really good test for us,” said the reigning WTCC Trophy champion. “We didn’t come here to set a lap time; we came here to get everything in place to set fast lap times at every round.


“It’s a shame that the weather wasn’t great on the second day, which meant we had to change our plan a little bit, but the results look good and we’ve made some very positive steps forward with the suspension and balance. We have another few days planned over the next few weeks before the start of the season so we should be in a good shape for Paul Ricard at the season opener.”


Although they didn’t take to the track, Michelisz’s fellow factory Honda drivers Rob Huff and Tiago Monteiro were also present during the two-day tes."

Test report: López tops day two of WTCC testing



03/03/2016 18:30


WTCC title holder José María López has topped day two of official FIA World Touring Car Championship testing in Italy today.


Rain – even a freak hail storm – had dampened the Vallelunga circuit and appeared to have made the early running decisive in terms of the fastest lap times until the factory Citroën driver struck during the day’s fifth and final session with a best lap of 1m37.123s around the the 4.085-kilometre Rome track.


Team-mate Yvan Muller set the bar with a 1m37.730s in the opening dry session and was quickest again in the second session before handing over the C-Eylsée WTCC test car to López. But while López also set the pace in session four, the third session of the day was notable following Fredrik Ekblom’s pacesetting time in his Volvo S60 Polestar TC1.


The Swedish make’s performance brand is embarking on a long-term WTCC campaign from 2016 and the results of testing will give the factory Polestar squad plenty of cause for optimism, particularly after Ekblom’s team-mate, Thed Björk went second quickest in the dry first session to complete the day in third overall.


“We have had two extremely valuable test days,” said Björk. “While we can’t draw any real conclusions until the first race, it is satisfying to see that we straight out of the box are quite close to the top times.”


Mehdi Bennani, who was fastest of all on the dry opening day of testing on Wednesday, underlined his WTCC Trophy title credentials with fourth overall in his Sébastien Loeb Racing Citroën. Behind Ekblom in the overall standings, Nobert Michelisz was sixth in a works Honda Civic WTCC followed by Grégoire Demoustier, Tom Chilton and René Münnich.


The two-day official WTCC test was in preparation for the opening weekend of the 2016 season at Circuit Paul Ricard in France from 1-3 April when a number of drivers not in action at Vallelunga, including works LADA trio Nicky Catsburg, Gabriele Tarquini and Hugo Valente, plus Honda pair Rob Huff and Tiago Monteiro, will be on track.


WTCC Official Test day two, combined classification:

1 José María López (ARG) Citroën C-Elysée WTCC (1m37.123s);


2 Yvan Muller (FRA) Citroën C-Elysée WTCC (1m37.730s);


3 Thed Björk (SWE) Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 (1m38.527s);

"Polestar pair on track and on the pace in the WTCC

 03/03/2016 20:00

Polestar Cyan Racing put its factory Volvo S60 TC1s up against its FIA World Touring Car Championship rivals for the first time in Italy this week and more than held its own.


Thed Björk and Fredrik Ekblom impressed during two days of official testing at Vallelunga with Ekblom fastest of all in Thursday’s third test session.


“We have waited for a long time to get on track with the competitors of the championship,” said Ekblom. “We worked through a lot of vital issues during the days, providing us with a lot of answers. There is still plenty of work ahead of us all season but the feeling is good ahead of the first race.”


Team-mate Björk added: “We have had two extremely valuable test days. While we can’t draw any real conclusions until the first race, it is satisfying to see that we straight out of the box are quite close to the top times.”


Volvo, through its performance brand Polestar, has made a long-term commitment to the WTCC from 2016

Tom Coronel Chevrolet

Tom Coronel Chevrolet


HAPPY to be in the FIA WTCC again!  Yeaaah here we are, check my new livery! Do you like it???

Proud to announce I'll be racing for ROAL Motorsport and part of the WTCC family again. Many thanks and a very warm welcome to my (new) sponsors




Tom Coronel took to video to confirm his return to the FIA World Touring Car Championship at the WTCC Media Launch at Autodromo Vallelunga tonight.

Coronel, a WTCC racer since its revival in 2005, was unable to attend the media gathering in Italy due to a long-standing family holiday in Austria.

However, he delivered a message to confirm he will continue to race his DHL-branded ROAL Motorsport Chevrolet Cruze. Afterwards he issued this statement: “Never before did it take me so long before I was able to announce my plans in motorsport. It was uncertain until the very end and now, I feel privileged that I am able to announce a further season in the FIA WTCC. I have been racing in this series since it started and many people feel that the FIA WTCC without Tom Coronel is unthinkable.”

Coronel will be a contender for honours in the WTCC Trophy, the category for independent racers.
