Thoughts on qualifying system?

Seems a bit convoluted to me, but then again, could be worse, anyone remember the STCC system a couple of seasons back...?!

Saturday's race a straight-forward 30 mins qualifying. No problem with that as that's normal for most series.

Sunday's 2 races use the old WTCC format - Q1 > Q2 > top 5 shootout, with the first race of the day with reversed top ten from Q2. I've never liked that idea. if you make a mistake or have a problem in qualifying and finish outside the top ten, then that's pretty much your entire weekend ruined.

Nah.. nice list, but teams, cars and drivers so far were ever shifting in TCR. Last year I made a similar list for 2017 and I think I only got Vernay at Leopard and Oriola at Bamboo right... out of 15+ predicted entrys.

Amazing. Can Volvo run a 5-cylinder?

Zengő Zoltán said they would like to run Audis if they get enough money.

Bári Dávid (M1RA) wrote today it's absolutely not sure they can enter in the WTCR, because it requires much more money and resource, so there is a high chance to stay in Europe, maybe in one of the local championship.

As I know Lada doesn"t have a TCR legal car just like Volvo (I know, they start to develope one).

Munnich-Honda, more probably.

Nash said weeks ago that he wants to come back in the BTCC.

Comini likely switching to the subaru. He said the Audi is past, Subaru is future

Would be a shame to not have Tassi in this championship.

They do indeed, the photo in this article is in fact of a TCR LADA in action in Russia:

Coronel has said he has four options for next year, and confirmed that ROAL is one of them. Boutsen-Gineon will likely be one of the others as well. And maybe Münnich could be one, as there were roumours he would join them anyway in 2017, and I think BRC racing could be an option, as he tested for them.

And if MIRA will me on the grid, it'll probably be with Michelisz, right? I can't imagine him driving for an other team than his own.

RC Motorsport is a French team, right? Then I think that a Peugeot is more likely than the Lada.

If Comini is going to drive a Subaru, than there will need to be a Subaru team on the grid. But who will take that chance, as it has not shown any potential so far.
