The WTCC Chevrolet Cruze team is fine tuning their Cruze race cars to hopefully win this last round of the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) in Macau. They have three drivers qualifying for the big race on sunday: Yvan Muller, Robert Huff, Alain Menu. From today's qualification round Yvan Muller & Robert Huff take the lead in 1st and 2nd with Alain Menu in 3rd.

Check out this video with all three drivers from the WTCC Chevy Cruze team with their say on the race.

...GREAT!

...however, that WTCC has about the same 'roots' to a street Cruze as a NASCAR Chevy does to a street Chevy.

they actually use the same subframe as the cruze lolz
about all it shares in common i think :/

completely different engine, tires/wheels, suspension setup, etc.

i agree with 70AAR, they're completely different cars for the most part and besides publicity it really does us no good :/

WTCC Cruze Assembly Video

So true, the WTCC Cruze team cars are along ways out from our street Cruzes but it is interesting how popular this racing is overseas. Here is an interesting time lapse construction of a WTCC modified Cruze. Enjoy.:)
