Three Lada Priora at Oschersleben

The Lada team Russian Bears are going to complete their switch to the Priora model for the race at Oschersleben. So far James Thompson has been the only Lada driver with the new model. Jaap van Lagen and Kirill Ladygin will have one brand new Priora each.

But Thompson is not going to take part in the race at Oschersleben due to his commitments in the V8 Supercars series in Australia.

Team boss Viktor Shapovalov is going to take Thompsons place temporarily, but the Brit is going to be back at Imola in September.

Before the race at Oschersleben, Lada are going to test at Magny Cours, a test focused on engine development.
