I agree about the Ford and Subaru but it's too early to judge the Kia. IMO STARD should race one or two cars themself.

You forgot the Alfa and that Italian car is competative so it's possible.

Great looking car.
Subaru is hard car to tune if you never tuned it before.
Top Run always used cars built by other teams. And they have much more experience in RWD cars they do for Superstars Series.
I still have faith in them.

Well, this is true. It´s difficult to judge as the drivers who raced the Kia are mostly unproven and the teams probably weren't able to make use of the car´s full potential.

This is true as well, I forgot! The Alfa definitely has some potential and it has been able to win races. They only have to sort out the reliability issues.

Thanks for this insight, I didn't know about that...

From browsing the web, I found that CBL are selling Dan Lloyd's car. Could mean absolutely nothing though.

Correct. And it was on sale since July. I'm just speculating whether they're scaling back as the other cars aren't on sale or whether CBL are changing manufacturer.

I was thinking it might be the ex. 2016 Nash car, which was quite damaged last year in Thailand. They might just swab it out for a new one, once sold?

It's says 2017 spec but that indeed doesn't mean the car is from 2017.
In 2015 there were already 100 cars so I assume #131 is from 2016.

Is the TCR team based in UK? With TCR UK on it's way they try to sell it?

Also Racecarsdirect is full of TCR cars.
PWR is selling 2 Leons, Brink is selling 2 RS3, Target is selling 4 Audi's and 4 Honda's, Lappalainen is also selling an Audi.
Is it economically viable to sell car after only one season and then buy new car for next season?

Also I found this on Facebook Top Run page

Con un margen de entusiasmo muy grande, el equipo de Castiglione Olona, Top Run dispuso de la Subaru WRX STI TCR 00 para el talentoso piloto suizo, dos veces consecutivas monarca de la categoría en el plano internacional, Stefano Comini, quien realizó dos carreras muy buenas con el producto armado en Varese, de la firma nipona que tiene sede en Mitaka, Tokyo, STI. El vehemente pilotaje de Comini dio sus frutos ocupando los puestos de adelante en las competencias de fin de semana pasado en Imola, más concretamente en el circuito Enzo & Dino Ferrari, donde la máquina azul, estuvo entreverada entre el podio en la manga inicial, que tras un toque lo marginó de obtener un resultado brillante.
Con un cambio de piso rotundo en la segunda cronometrada del domingo, mojado, húmedo y con alguna llovizna, el trazado se hizo complicado y el fuerte movimiento de Comini empezó incrementarse en su velocidad sobre el bólido de la formación del norte en Italia, Top Run, que con la WRX STI TCR, "Oppa" remontó en forma increíble desde la ubicación 13, para llegar a un paso del tercer escalón de podio. Asombrando a propios y extraños, el fabuloso rendimiento del vehículo japonés en pista, cómo la aceptación mejorada de la transmisión hecha en Australia por los responsables técnicos de Modena Egineering y el excepcional trabajo de los amortiguadores hechos en Kanagawa by TEIN.
Que le han marcado un avance notorio al auto azul itálico, que tiene planes concretos para los meses sucesivos, según indicaba su Manager deportivo, Renato Russo, con la idea de estar en los siguientes citas de la TCR itálica en los reconocidos recorridos pisteros de Vallelunga & Monza respectivamente con Stefano Comini. Y factiblemente pensar en estar presente en Abu Dhabi, en el Yas Marina Circuit, con dos coches bajo la nueva especificación de la WRX STI TCR, número 00 y 001, que estarían evaluando que sean conducidas por el veterano Luca Rangoni, "Gigi" Ferrara o el jovencísimo Giacomo Altoë.
Observando con mucha atención el año próximo, ya que si se consiguen los buenos resultados, el conjunto ligado a Milano de los hermanos Agnello, tiene ensamblados para hacer ya cuatro carrocerías nuevas de la Subaru WRX STI TCR 018 y esperando el estudio total desde Japón, para ver si se obtiene el apoyo necesario oficial y financiero by Subaru Técnica International, para llevar a cabo un programa importante de fábrica en el 2018 con los colores azules y las estrellas amarillas clásicas de la compañía fabricante de automóviles japonesa.

If Google is right they will be at Abu Dhabi final with 2 Subaru's with Ferrara, Rangoni or Altoe.
Also look like that STI is evaluating option to give Top Run manufacturer support for next year.

Cars being for sale doesn't mean they have to be sold. Could also be a something like 'if we can sell them for a good price we can replace them and otherwise we'll keep on using them.'
