No news and no cars from the MG side. I wonder if the raising number of Hyundai is caused by the lack of the MG cars for the ETCR 2021

The MG project was never official announced. Correct me if I am wrong.

I think as official as it got was Xavier Gavory quoted as saying: "Officially registered we have Cupra, who were the first manufacturer to come onboard with Mattias Eskstrom and Jordi Gene at the wheel of their impressive eRacer. They have made a lot of communication around this and the car is very beautiful and very aggressive. Then we have Alfa Romeo and MG, who have built ETCR spec cars. Both have announced the production of the cars, and we expect to have their registration very soon. Obviously Hyundai has the Veloster that is eligible and it is another extremely nice and aggressive car in terms of its looks, and they have done a lot of testing already with the car. They will hopefully register officially very soon."

JAS/Honda supposedly had a car in the works, too.

Luca Filippi is the second driver in the Romeo Ferraris team.

He has struggled until now in Touring Car. A very bad TCR Europe campaign in 2019 and only a top10 finish last season in WTCR. He was a great formula driver so I hope he will find a better feeling in these RWD ETCR cars

I've not been following the build up to this, but did manage to catch the first race this morning, or should that be "battle 1" as I believe they are calling it. It wasn't terrible, but also wasn't what I would call entertaining. The whole idea of splitting the field into separate 'battle groups' to hide the lack of cars is hideously contrived

I watched the short video on their YouTube channel to explain the groups and grid and I'm more confused that I was before. Grid positions are determined by a random draw, except when a driver can pick his own grid position? Then there was something about a Willy Wonka golden ticket, two-eyed jacks are wild and roll a six to start. And people complain that the BTCC has too many gimmicks.

It has potential, there were some very good flashes of excitement... but

Not with such poor organization. Sound problmes, technical problems with gates, poor scheduling, audio stream instead of the livestream etc.

They need to fix these issues if they want the championship to succeed in the future

Maybe "Pure" is meant to be an ironic name?
