Seat cars are ten kilos lighter

The Seat León cars will be ten kilos lighter for the next event in Russia, compared to the weight they were given at the Salzburgring.

 

.Following the fifth event that took place in Austria, the Chevrolet Cruze and Honda Civic cars will be allocated the maximum compensation weight of 40 kilos; the Chevrolet remains the reference car, but the Honda is given the same weight because it is only three tenths of a second slower according to the calculation based on the lap times set in Slovak Republic, Hungary and Austria.
 
Seat cars will run with only 10 extra kilos on board, while – just like in the previous event at the Salzburgring – the BMW 320 TC will not be laden by extra weight and the Lada Granta will benefit from a 20-kg reduction of its minimum weight.
 
Compensation weight Moscow:
+ 40 kg Chevrolet Cruze 1.6T, Honda Civic S2000
+ 10 kg SEAT León WTCC
± 0 kg BMW 320 TC
- 20 kg LADA Granta
