I can understand that view - but it is always worth remembering that part of BTCC's success is stability, not variety.

Alan Gow explains that he is reluctant to make changes: "Where do you take it in the future? Well you don’t; you build on what you’ve got. [Stability] is what it’s all about. There’s a reason why the championship is the success it is; it’s because we’ve got stability in the technical regulations. You’ve got investment in the cars and stability in the regulations. You’ve also got stability in the calendar, in the race formats, in the television and in the tyres. It’s something that the teams can invest in knowing what the BTCC will look like for the next five years. They’ve made major investments and it’s up to us to make sure that they can quantify their investment as much as possible over that time, so we provide them with the best and most stable platform that we can. Sometimes you tinker with the race formats a little bit, but at the moment the race formats are working really well. I’m never against change, but I’m always against wholesale change. You don’t do change for the sake of change."
