Lada Returning to WTCC in 2012

Lada Returning to WTCC in 2012

Sometimes it is fun to root for the underdog, even if it has no real chance of winning. That is why its fun to see that Russian automaker Lada is returning to the World Touring Car Championship next season with a Lada Granta. For now the car will compete in just two rounds of the series: May 6th at the Hungaroring and June 3rd at Estoril. 

The Lada Granta WTCC car will be based on the Granta produced for the car's one-make race series in Russia. That is the car pictured in the gallery above. If the two races are considered successful for Lada, it is considered competing in the entire series in 2013. 

Lada competed in the WTCC in 2008 and 2009 with Lada 110s and later Prioras. Its best results were at Imola with a sixth place finish.

I like the fact that Lada dares to come to WTCC. Germany seems quite a big market for them, and I think WTCC was a bit more reasonable than DTM ;-)
