LADA Sport Rosneft has officially confirmed it will run two Vesta TC1s during WTCC Race of Germany.

The Russian squad had been due to field a three-car line-up for rounds seven and eight of the FIA World Touring Car Championship.

However, Mikhail Kozlovskiy will be a non-starter after his Vesta was commandeered for former WTCC champion Rob Huff to use after the Briton inflicted considerable damage to his own car during a test in Hungary last week.

Meanwhile, Jaap van Lagen netted the ninth fastest time in testing this morning on his return to the LADA fold following a five-year absence. The Dutchman, ranked as a Nürburgring Nordschleife specialist, is replacing James Thompson for WTCC Race of Germany.

The 2017 FIA World Touring Car Championship season heads to Qatar next for a thrilling showdown with three prestigious titles still up for grabs.

Rob Huff joined fellow winners Edoardo Mortara and Daniel Ticktum in celebrating their respective triumphs in Macau this afternoon.

A faultless display on his Macau debut has ensured that Thed Björk tops the FIA World Touring Car Championship for Manufacturers’ heading to the season-closing double-header in Qatar later this month.

Rob Huff made history by winning for a record-breaking ninth time around the Guia street track as he dominated a wet Main Race at FIA WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau while Norbert Michelisz cut Thed Björk’s title lead to 6.5 points with two races left in Qatar next month.

Rob Huff claimed the TAG Heuer Best Lap Trophy to cap a successful FIA WTCC JVCKENWOOD Race of Macau weekend for the ALL-INKL.COM Münnich Motorsport driver.
