Kozlovskiy to miss WTCC season-opener

Mikhail Kozlovskiy will miss the 2015 WTCC season-opener in Argentina after delays on his LADA Vesta TC1 race car

Mikhail Kozlovskiy is set to miss the 2015 FIA World Touring Car Championship season-opener in Argentina this weekend due to delays on his LADA Vesta TC1 race car.

The Russian driver is currently out in Argentina at the Autodromo Termas de Rio Hondo circuit with the LADA team but will have to watch on from the pits. The 25-year-old will make his season debut at the second round in Morocco.

"Mikhail Kozlovskiy will start his season from the second round in Morocco," a statement from the team read. "Due to some delays with parts and a very tight schedule before the early start of the season, the third Vesta is still undergoing a manufacturing process. However, Mikhail will fly to Argentina to take part in promo events ahead of the WTCC season-opener in Termas de R?o Hondo."

Kozlovskiy's team-mates British duo Rob Huff and James Thompson will compete in Argentina in the all-new LADA Vesta TC1.
