GM has announced that they started testing a new racing model based on the new Chevrolet Cruze, which will compete in next year’s World Touring Car Championship (WTCC). The car has been developed by the same team that took the previous WTCC Chevrolet car to a streak of twelve wins in world championship races and they hope that the car will be ready for the first stage, scheduled for Curitiba, Brazil.

“The new Cruze will be the next milestone in Chevrolet Europe’s motorsports history. So far, we have achieved every goal we set in 2005, step by step: challenge the competition, score points, prove we can win and then become regular frontrunners against competition with an established motorsports resume. With the Cruze, we will put the bar even higher and firmly aim at winning the World Championship. Chevrolet’s unique ‘trump card’ is having worked with the same team, engineers and drivers for the past four seasons, with the success we all know. To be able to do this again with the Cruze will only help to increase our chances of achieving our goals” said Eric Nève, Chevrolet Europe Motorsport Manager.
