The WTCC has completed his european season after competing in Vila Real, and therefore has entered fully into the summer break. The effort in terms of logistics to bring the cars and all the material to Argentina and then to the rounds of the asian championship leads the teams from the World Touring car more than a month ‘free’ competition. And we say this in quotation marks because it tends to be a period of the year in the teams and manufacturers usually complete days of test in order to make the finishing touches on their cars for the second half of the year.
The first to undertake these test summer has been the team Lada Sport. Given its association with Oreca, the Russian team has chosen the path of Magny Cours to perform these tests with the Lada Vesta TC1, once the headquarters of Oreca is a few metres and all development of this car has been in the path of the French. However, in this session of a test is not all the ingredients were accurate with respect to the final tests undertaken in this track, as the steering wheel of the Lada Vesta has been an old acquaintance of the team as it is Jaap Van Lagen.
it should Be remembered that Jaap Van Lagen was the official driver of Lada in the WTCC in 2015, competing in the five rounds prior to the summer break. Although scored in five of the ten races demonstrating a level more than acceptable for a pilot who is not competing in the World Touring car for six years, was finally a substitute for Nicolas Lapierre, well-connected with Oreca. However, the good work has been award as Van Lagen you can climb the Vesta TC1 in this test to cover the lower of Nicky Catsburg, overwhelmed by their commitments in other categories.
