There is only one change to the compensation weight list for the next event in Oschersleben: 20 kilos added to the Chevrolet Cruze cars compared to Brands Hatch.
The BMW 320si emerged as the fastest model during the British weekend, only 0.048 seconds faster than the Chevrolet and three tenths faster than the SEAT León TDI.
According to the calculation that took into account the lap times set in the three previous events (Brno, Porto and Brands Hatch) BMW and SEAT remain on the maximum compensation weight (+40kg), while the Chevrolet moves up to +30kg.
Like in Brands Hatch, Alessandro Zanardi’s BMW 320si (equipped with a sequential gearbox) will have no compensation weight on board, while the SEAT León TFSI and the both LADA models (110 and Priora) will have 20kg deducted from the minimum weight.

CLAIRET TO JOIN SUNRED IN OSCHERSLEBEN
Frenchman Jean-Marie Clairet is the SEAT Eurocup driver who won WTCC participation in the next event at Oschersleben.
The 42-year old from Paris emerged as the best scorer in last weekend’s Eurocup round at Brands Hatch, claiming victory in the second race and climbing to fifth in the series‘ classification.
"It’s a dream. The WTCC is another planet compared to the championships I have raced so far. My only goal will be to finish the races without damaging the car," said Clairet who has claimed European and national titles in the Citroën and Peugeot trophies during his racing career.
Clairet is the fourth SEAT Eurocup driver to qualify for a WTCC event, following Tim Coronel (Brno), Diego Puyo (Porto) and Norbert Michelisz (Brands Hatch).
