There are current 100+ TCR cars, with more being built every year. I think we have enough to do already!
on the super touring front the 1993 South African series is missing from the register

races are on youtube and entry list is

- 2 Toyota Chaser, story with this cars is they were BTCC Carina bought from Rouse Engineering and reshelled into Toyota Chaser because the 1993 rules stated that cars must be locally build , they even used same livery

this rule didn't apply to privateers but only works cars

- 2 Nissan Sentra

- 2 BMW 318 (E36)

- 2 Opel Astra

-2 BMW M3, one was ex 1992 Matt Neal and apperead at just one round , the other one was privtter Farouk Dangour

Are you sure they were Chasers? Chasers are large rear wheel drive sedans - I seem to remember they were reshelled into a car smaller than a Carina/Corona, something like a Corolla or Sprinter

My experience of TV coverage is that they rarely show a full season entry list. If you are lucky you might get a partial grid and results from each race, but usual without race numbers and team names. It means I'll need to watch every race, pausing multiple times to try to make out numbers or text on grainy YouTube footage and making notes - that's something I simply don't have time for right now.

Looking back at some old BTCC season reviews and despite the videos being 2 or 3 hours long there are times when some drivers/cars are never mentioned and only ever seen in the back of shot. So even after spending all that time watching old footage I would have no guarantee that the list would be complete.

I'm not saying that I won't add that series, just that it's not top of my list of things to do.

Thanks for filling in the thread with irrelevant super touring stuff......

Interesting to see two BTC-T cars out at Donington in the HSCC series. I wonder if we'll see more come out of storage?

I hope so. I'd love to see cars like the 406 coupé on track again, and there must be a few Astras around.

I'd like to see some S2000 BMWs. I loved the E46 and E90, however I am aware that the E90 probably isn't eligible.

Cut-off date is 2005, so E90s wouldn't be eligible. Part of the reason is that BMW continued to produce updates for many years later, and most teams continued to buy those parts. So even the earliest 2006-built E90 would be running as 2011 spec (aside from the turbo engine).

The Integra won't now be out this weekend. Hopefully will be out later in the year. Looking forward to seeing the MG again, which has barely turned a wheel since the end of 2008.

Totally due to my curiosity, but are there any MGs left running the original V6 engine? In fact, are there any V6 MG BTCC engines lying around? They sounded fantastic.

Thanks for the info Nigel. Are there any more late additions or no shows for the supertourers. I noticed there were a few absentees from the "usual crowd".
