Very interesting read. Slower, cheaper, customer cars for use as a BTCC feeder series. If it's on the BritishGT support list, all 26 track-side fans will have fun.

I prefer touring cars that roll. V8 Supercars look cooler than Super TC2000 for that reason.

Agreed, I like to see drivers being challenged by a car. I know all cars are challenging to drive on the edge, but it's difficult to get a sense of that with a car that is seemingly stuck to the road.

Can't say I like ABS on the TCR cars either. But that's what customer drivers want/need.

Would be nice, however, to see a non-driver aid and more power variant of TCR for the upper echelons of the class.

TCR cars don't have ABS. Only Endurance version have it.

I saw the TCR cars at Silverstone for the 24H. They were pretty impressive and to be honest, looked about as fast as a NGTC car.

They are reasonably close. Over a 1 minute lap TCR is 1.5-2 seconds slower. NGTC have about 20bhp more so that's probably why

Having seen Morrison's Seat, and Crocker's Honda racing at Knockhill, big grid of TCRs would be great to see.

I can't see TCR UK beating BTCC. Let's start with the grid capacity and quality. I'm under no illusions that TCR will look worse in both aspects. I see TCR UK rather as a 'BTCC Development Series' and don't suspect that this will change soon

Hopefully the driving standards in TCR UK will be significantly better than the British Touring Car Crashfest (BTCC).

Quality?

I see current BTCC has quantity and thrills and spills. On that front it does very well.

Apart from a handful of drivers, there are no names involved anymore.

Neither series are really 'touring cars'.

TCR themselves say they will be competing against Clip Cup, Mini challenge etc and only see themselves as a feeder series into BTCC.
