Experience pays off.

The GRM and Kelly cars were woefully slow. Hardly surprising given their performances in Supercars.

At Sydney Motorsport Park today and the TCR race was pretty good. Bright really showed his experience. Cars are interesting and varied. Also many more people at the circuit for a Saturday compared to any other Shannon’s meeting I have attended. There is real interest in TCR, especially with the younger ones. A promising start

You and I were obviously watching different races today, as I am fairly sure the race I watched a GRM Alfa Romeo was very nearly on the podium.

Dont confuse the Teams with the cars, the Renault's need a lot of work, as does the Subaru and the Opel, and it will take some time to make these cars competitive.

Cheers,

Mark.

Hi Mark, I was there in attendance.

The Astra is a proven race and championship winner.

It was a good start.

Not exciting as the first Supertouring race at Eastern Creek all those years ago ��

With those cars being uncompetitive internationally, why not just give them local BOP adjustments? If they already have no ballast, then just add a bit more boost perhaps!

PS. I am little confused that TCR did not seem to follow on their plan to use BTCC type reverse grids and success ballast. I fear races 2 and 3 may be rather dull without these measures.

Heimgartner citing gear selection problems as to a contributor to his lack of race pace yesterday.

Hopefully the tail end Charlies can lean on the tyres a bit more today to close up the field.

The grid for race three is based on finishing positions, however there is also a reversed-grid element to the starting order. Numbers representing the cars that finished from sixth to 12th position in race two are put into a bowl, and one number is drawn at random. The corresponding car will start on pole.

Cars that are successful in the BTCC must carry ballast (additional weight) in their cars. Ballast is given to the top ten runners in the following allocations:

1st: 54kg, 2nd: 48kg 3rd: 42kg, 4th: 36kg, 5th: 30kg, 6th: 24kg, 7th: 18kg, 8th: 12kg, 9th: 6kg, 10th: 6kg

Between events, ballast is allocated according to championship positions and is carried in qualifying and race one
For races two and three, ballast is allocated according to the finishing positions in race one and two respectively
http://www.btcc.net/about/key-rules-and-regulations/

It works, it compresses the top cars/drivers and the tail end Charlies together -- they should do it IMO.

Not that the racing action was completely terrible as is, but the closer, the better.
