Fantastic race 2.
They only need to get Hyundai and Alfa BoP right and this would be fantastic championship.

The Hyundais are pegged back too much now indeed. The other cars seems to be balanced nicely, if they can get the Hyundais in there we're in for a stunning rest of the season. Race 2 was a blast, despite Zandvoort not being the best overtaking circuit.

Let's see why the Hyundai's are with the compensation weight being lowered.

Fully agree with Thed Bjork:
https://www.touringcars.net/2018/05/...eason-bop-test

In theory, why can't someone sandbag in winter and put some huge developments later in mid-season? I think second BoP session is must.

In general WSC and FIA should really sort this system in terms of organisation. I think we should just give them time because the concept is still young.

Agree, Hyundais were hit too much, but shouldn't change many things dramatically again, first of all because everyone will be on +60kg once again in Vila Real. Maybe -10mm of ride height would do.

Happy for Peugeot, finally the were in the mix.

Surprised by the weak pace of Cupra, to be honest

Where was the BoP hammer when Citroen was making an embarrassment of the WTCC?

Yeah, i think that -10 or -20mm will be OK for Hyundai.


And about Bjork comment, I think that there is rule that you can't develop cars during season.

I found it but this was for TCR International, no idea if they keep this rule.

This video is the best thing about the WTCR this weekend. Excellent trolling.

WTCR is a crap.

Hyundai has a good car + they paid for 4 top drivers.

In a single brand series all 4 Hyundai guys has to finish in the top8 every time.

And what they do with their BoP? They force these top drivers to the back of the field.

Driver skills doesn't matter, engeneering skills doesn't matter.

In the TC1 times they just froze the advantage of the Citroen by their stupid joker system. Like F1 did with Mercedes engines.

Back in the day Eurosport Events needed Citroen to keep WTCC alive. The BoP was "conditioned" by the humour of Mr Matton.

Even if you have a point I can't agree with this point. Hyundai drivers are not as good as some paint them here.
