I don't know where this idea that it is 1/3rd of the cost comes from. And in any case, the BTCC does not need to be cheap at the moment. Capacity grids for almost a decade now, and whilst you can argue some of the drivers on the grid aren't good enough, show me a series anywhere in the world where that isn't the case.

Good to see more entries, especially one from a couple of major BTCC teams.

Last time i heard a BTCC car was c £300k to build new whereas a TCR car is c. £100k to buy new....think that is about right....a third of the cost....

Buying the car isn't the only part of running a car for multiple seasons though.

6 is more than I was expecting. This year they run as a combined race with the VW Racing Cup, so 17 cars on the grid in total.

Not actually a bad solution. The VW racing cup is a close enough spec to run with IMHO. And we’ve seen a bit of variety in that series too, remember the SEAT.

The conditons weren't really conducive to good racing. There was some nice action amongst the VWs & Civics though.

The production quality of the stream was abysmal, however. Disregarding the technical issues, there weren't enough cameras, the audio levels were all over the place, the direction & camerawork were poor, and the graphics looked like they were designed in Microsoft Paint. A group of media studies students could have probably done a better job.
