That same year 1971 the Soviet pilots driving behind the wheel of the VAZ-2101 celebrated their first success becoming the gold cup holders in the most challenge rally “Tour d’Europe”. Rich history of the LADA Sport factory team is associated with prize finishes at many world, soviet, and later on, the Russian championships.
