The two Lada 110 2.0 WTCC were present at the WTCC event at Pau, France last weekend. However the russian cars failed again to pass the scrutineering because the intake and outlet ports of the cylinder head did not conform to the homologation form. With the agreement of all the other competitors, the Stewards decided to let them race as transparent cars in Pau and in the next meeting at Brno (14-15 June). The team has to introduce the needed changes so that their cars comply before Estoril (11-13 July) as no further derogations will be conceded.

(The Opel C2OXE motors of the Lada 110), which were prepared by English company Swindon (Racing Engines) for our cars according to neat samples and similitude of Chevrolet's mill team engines, were not correspond able to homologation map on one of the parameters. The point is Chevrolet uses slightly different variation of a power plant from that was installed on assembly line on Lada 1106. At "our" engine canals in cylinder head have slightly smaller cuts, Victor Shapovalov, the “Russian Bears” team owner, said after the Valencia event.

So, like in Valencia two weeks ago, the two Lada 110 cars of Victor Shapovalov and Jaap van Lagen were not eligible to score championship points in Pau.
