Big troubles for Comini and Morbidelli.
Agree with everything

Not bad Race 2.
But look like BOP is too light for Alfa and too hard for Audi and Opel
I mean we have 15 Audi's in TCR Germany with 45kg, and Comini can't fight with others. Maybe it's Comtoyou is new team but i think that Files will dominate it once again.

In Oschersleben at the test the Audi was - with BoP - superquick!

First time actually watching a race. The racing is good, but man do the cars sound horrendous. The current turbo-4 era of touring cars is dreadful from a sound standpoint. The tone is bad, but they don't even sound like they're going fast, if that makes sense?

Great racing last weekend.

The Alfa quick but seems not the easiest car under braking.

So far WestCoast is disappointing.

They're about the same from a sound standpoint on television.

The BTCC commentators can't shut their mouth for a second so the engine noise is less.

Is it just me or were the Bahrain races more exciting than usual.

Georgia was ok, but the first Bahrain race especially was action packed

Listening to a YouTube video from Donington from one of the posters in the Donington thread and I have to say they sound well, not too dissimilar to the Super Touring car

Comparing to 5-cylinder and V6 Super Tourers is a bit disingenious (of course they sound better!), but I do agree that Super Tourers sound better than modern touring cars.

BTCC seem to sound fairly ok for a 4-cylinder turbo, maybe because they are a bit more tuned. The more stock motors of TCR, don't sound too good at all.

What you can't portray in video, or is difficult to, is just how LOUD the BTCC cars are trackside for the spectators. Side exit exhausts are pretty cool too.
