The Classic was a professional snooker tournament.

The tournament started life as the Wilsons Classic in 1980. A change in sponsor in 1982 meant a name change to Lada Classic. Two years later, the tournament was made a ranking tournament. Mercantile Credit took over the sponsorship for the 1984/85 season. The tournament ran until 1992.

The Lada 2109 hatchback was rebadged as Lada 2114, and Lada 21099 sedan was rebadged as the Lada 2115.
Though the original Lada, and as of the early part of the new millennium the Samara, have now been withdrawn from Europe, the Lada 110 and the Niva are still sold on the European market, as are the more modern models.
In 1982 Lada became the sponsors of the Classic snooker tournament and offered any player who made a 147 break a Lada; Steve Davis (who achieved it) later commented that the players had joked that the prize for nearly doing so but missing the final fl was two Ladas.

The recognition of of LADA was facilitated by the development of robust islet autoantibody assays, in particular for glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (GAD Ab) (2).
LADA is associated with serological evidence of islet autoimmunity in the setting of reduced and declining insulin secretion.
The diagnosis of LADA, hereafter called ADA, is currently based on three criteria: adult age at onset of diabetes, the presence of circulating islet autoantibodies and lack of a requirement for insulin for at least 6 months after diagnosis.
