Seems interesting.

"No balance of performance" is simply great.

Yeah, it's not needed with FWD-only spec. powertrains.

I guess these cars will be on roughly the same level as Clio Cup cars? It'll be good to have a multi-marque lower-level series in saloon car racing. TCS in Italy hasn't taken off.

Great stuff, usually these series with hot headed youngsters provide great racing.

Hmm... so this is not organized by Lotti's crew, but rather by "TCO - international Touring Car Organisation" from Bremen, Germany. Anybody ever heard about them? Any known names behind that organization?

Sounds interesting.

Could be a solution for TCR Benelux to bring grids to +20 cars. The Benelux series really needs a cheaper 2nd class.

Not sure that fills me with great confidence. The technical ruleset sounds interesting and I think that there is a need for a secondary category to TCR, especially for regions like Benelux and the Iberian Peninsula, but motorsport is all about momentum - people will only invest in a series if it has a certain "hipness" to it.

Having just failed to put together a sufficient grid for the last series he was involved in, Mayer definitely does not have that. Things would look much better if the ADAC and Engstler officially endorsed TC-Light as their junior category or even had a hand in promoting it.

What makes things worse is that there really isn't another place to run these cars in case the series is a failure, so teams might be stranded with 50k€ (just a guess) race cars and no place to race them.

Looks good, but no Mini on eligible cars list?

I'd prefer if the OEM road spec engines were kept and just beefed up / tuned.

That's what DTC tried to do with the S1600 category for the better part of a decade, and with not very much success. The spec power train is the only true USP for TC-Lights, so they really can't do without that.

Uruguayan Superturismo has spec Cosworth engines. It's been very succesful.
