Driving two sensible races in the TCR Russia finale at Fort Grozny, Dmitry Bragin wrapped up his third consecutive title by finishing sixth in Race 1; he then was second in Race 2.




In Race 1, LADA Sport Rosneft took a dominant 1-2-3, though Vladimir Sheshenin was later demoted from third to fourth for blocking Anton Badoev.



Mikhail Grachev took the lead followed by the sister car of Kirill Ladygin, Badoev’s Cupra and the third LADA Vesta of Sheshenin. Bragin was fifth, ahead of the Lukoil Racing duo of Ivan Lukashevich and Aleksey Dudukalo. Sheshenin overtook Badoev and completed the LADA trio at the front, Bragin followed him and moved up to fourth.



The LADA cars pulled away, while Bragin rejected Badoev’s assaults; Lukashevich overtook Dudukalo and joined the Bragin-Badoev fight. Nothing changed until the last lap, when Bragin, knowing he had secured the title, let Badoev and Lukashevich through; then Grachev handed victory to Ladygin who could still finish second in the championship.



Dudukalo took a lights-to-flag win in the Race 2, while Bragin kept Lukashevich and Sheshenin at bay to retain second place. Lukashevich and Sheshenin made contact and spun; the former rejoined in seventh while the LADA driver pitted.



This promoted Grachev to third and Roman Golikov to fourth, but the latter Golikov served a drive-through for jump-start and dropped at the back.



With Dudukalo in a comfortable lead, Bragin rejected Grachev’s assaults; Grachev was then joined by Badoev, Ladygin and Lukashevich in the fight for third. Two laps from the end Ladygin overtook Badoev for fourth and then the latter lost also fifth to Lukashevich.




Dudukalo finished as runner up to Bragin in the points, while Ladygin was classified third, beating Lukashevich by the number of victories (3-1), as they were equal on points.
