Excuse? Some convicts nicked our race cars.... and oh look they're in Australia.

Sorry good folks of Oz!


Given their is night and day in terms of performance and cost between Supercars and TCR I can imagine it could find a market. But here it's just a half baked broadly similar BTCC-a-like.

Easy to get 19 cars, when the series promotor owns most of them, and the drivers are on the payroll.

There is no reason why a TCR series can't work in the UK. The reason why this particular iteration isn't working starts at the top I think. I think it needs to come in at a substantially lower price point than BTCC to be successful and that is where the problem came in last season, and rather than do what they could to lower costs they made themselves a sub-class within another series which is even less notable than TCR UK was last season. The TCR cars themselves are very much less expensive than BTCC (several available in the 60k eur range on racecarsdirect for instance) and hired drives are significantly cheaper elsewhere as well. I'm not sure how or why it fell apart this off season but the field at the end of last season wasn't great, but it was a solid foundation.
