Lukoil Craft-Bamboo Racing will keep their long-standing partnership with Russian oil giant Lukoil and Spanish car manufacturer, SEAT Sport. Lukoil has titled sponsored the c’s and three SEAT Leon Cup Racer TCRs because the inaugural season began in 2015.
They have enjoyed much success together, taking 2nd within both the teams’ and drivers’ championship with their first season of competition. In 2016 Lukoil Craft-Bamboo Racing secured the teams’ title by a dominant 73 point margin and took second from the drivers’ championship, narrowly missing the top part spot by only 3.5 points but cementing themselves as the strongest contenders for 2017.
Lukoil and SEAT Sport join Craft-Bamboo Racing for the third consecutive TCR International Series season and are also devoted to building in their past success to have both drivers’ and teams’ titles. Lukoil Craft-Bamboo Racing was a constant front-runner in the championship over the past two seasons and you will be pushing themselves even harder to go on their string of top results, ensuring they can be while in the leading position come the very last round.
The team will once more run three cars, with all the trio displaying a current livery to the 2017 season. The 2017 livery is surely an evolution of Lukoil Craft-Bamboo Racing’s 2016 design but features more aggressive geometric patterns for the flank in the car. A revised design on the nose allows the SEAT a good sharper look, while white wheel arches at the front help define the wider with the Leon Cup Racer TCR. The livery is involved in a dominantly red back end contrasted with a blacked out rear valance to accomplish the 2017 package.
The exciting three driver lineup are going to be announced in a few days until the opening round kicks off on April 2nd in Georgia.
