Why spend time developing a good car, when you can have a bad car and just be allowed to run with a rocket instead of an engine.

Both the Alfa and Opel run at higher outputs. We've seen also season long that the Opel was even struggling with the amount of power they were allowed to use, belching black smoke out of the back, punctures, accusations etc. and the Alfa bounces, skips and understeers around every corner.

Just one win all season of which was a reverse grid for a Seat tells the story...

In many ways I agree with you Bob - as a purist I would love to see the best car/driver combination on the day win . However I can remember the eighties and the way the BTCC and ETCC effectively ended with each class becoming dominated by one make and history has a habit of repeating itself .

B.O.P. isn't perfect but until something better comes along , I prefer TCR's solution to the BTCC where silhouette cars are not even necessarily powered by an engine from the manufacturer's range - an Alfa Romeo powered by a TOCA engine ! Whatever next ?

The BTCC is not a silhouette series. There's a distinct factual difference between a silhouette championship and one that has a range of common parts.

Secondly, the Alfa in TCR doesn't run an engine that you can get in the production model either.

Astra is only car that run on 95% of engine power.
And how do you mean Alfa doesn't run with engine from production model?
They use engine from Giulietta Quadrifoglio Verde.
And I think that SRO BoP would be perfect. Split tracks in three categories and run different Bop for different track.
Since now they frozen technical regulations this isn't hard to introduce.
Audi and Honda can't race with so much kg on short twisted tracks. Just look at STCC.

Race 1

Shame for Homola.
After the disastrous qualifying a good result for Borkovic.

The swap Michelisz - Tassi didn't really work. I think Michelisz waited to long, should have tried it earlier in the race.

For the rest it was a great race.

I did not yet see race 2.

Race 2 was also entertaining. Hopefully TCR returns to Thailand next season.
