«Tolyatti Ring», Tolyatti
The final stage of RRC and LADA Granta Cup started with a significant delay.
The official opening day saw the training program for the Lada and Super-Production groups. The other classes («Touring», «Touring Light» and «National») refused to participate due to their disagreement with the change of rules (for details see the KSC official journal).
The best time in Training #1 was achieved by the team Dmitry Bragin/ Maxim Simonov (#4, Syzran Racing Team), who made 1 lap of the Tolyatti-Ring circuit in 1:58.256. The second best time was showed by team #77 Mikhail Mityayev/Sergey Shalunov (1:59.911). The pair Albert Iliazov/Vladimir Sheshenin (#16) came 3 seconds later than the leader. Nikita Misyulya (#50), the leader of the competition table, was only on the 7th place with 2:06.230.
Sergey Ryabov and Vladimir Melnikov (#1) demonstrated the best result of 2:00.991 in the second training. Alexey Dudukalo/ Alexey Chaban team (#14) came 1 second (1.086) later. The young driver Pavel Aleshin (#63) took the third line of the protocol with the result of 2:03.194.
Tomorrow will be an eventful day for the racers: warm-up at 9:00, then qualifications and two races at 13:45 and 16:55. You can see the live broadcast on the VAZ TV Information Channel or on the website vaztv.ru.
