Changes of plans for Golden Motors

22.08.2008: Changes of plans for Golden Motors

The Russian team Golden Motors have changed their plan to join the championship again in Oschersleben, Imola and Monza.

Due to sponsor-related reasons, the two Honda Accord cars of Andrey Smetsky and Alexander Lvov will finish the season in the Finnish Super Touring Championship (in which Lvov is currently third) before taking part in the FIA European Touring Car Cup at Salzburg.
