Eurolamp WRT (commonly known as just Eurolamp) is a Ukrainian rally team, currently competing in the World Rally Championship-2. Originally named Ascania Racing, the team was established in 2009 by Valeriy Gorban, who entered a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX in the 2009 Rally Poland. The team expanded to include a second car during the 2010 season for Oleksandr Saliuk, Jr., and a third car for Oleksiy Kikireshko in 2011, and contesting the World Rally Championship for Group N Production Cars. The team returned in 2012, with Gorban placing third overall in the Production championship, scoring a class victory at the Acropolis Rally and podium finishes at the Rally Argentina and Rally d'Italia. The team's best result overall to date was eighth place at the 2011 Rally Australia, achieved by Saliuk, who left the team at the end of the season.
