WTCC 2016 - Moscow - InSide magazine
Opening for business in 2012, the Hermann Tilke-designed Moscow Raceway is one of the newest venues on the WTCC calendar. And with home manufacturer LADA – backed up by Rosneft, Russia’s petroleum industry leader – going from strength-to-strength in the championship, the WTCC’s fourth visit to Russia takes on added significance. The track’s layout, particularly the long penultimate straight, promotes great racing and plenty of overtaking: Rob Huff described the inaugural WTCC race in 2013 as the “best ever”. With two wins from a possible six and the qualifying lap record, Citroën factory driver Yvan Muller is currently the Moscow Raceway master.
