WSR have had their engine boost pegged back:

Not quite full time.

'Harrison has rejoined BMR Racing for the majority of the rounds remaining on the 2019 calendar. [Harrison] has now been confirmed for Croft this weekend and the season's final three events at Knockhill, Silverstone and Brands Hatch.'

Interesting comments too about how he is not happy to see some people in the paddock, and they aren't happy to see him...

Absolute chaos, even by touring car championship standards.

Really frustrating to watch. Whoís idea was it to put a foam barrier on the outside of a corner? Ending it early was probably wise, even if it let AJ get off. Great effort by both Chilton and Smiley and good to see Jackson up there. Shame Jelleyís times didnít count

It would be interesting to see what case is behind the claim for the Subaru to have its boost reduced?

BMW 3-Series before Croft:
5 wins out of 9.
1st in drivers' standings.

Subaru before Croft:
0 wins out of 9.
4th in drivers' standings.

Compare to the Civic Type-R:
3 wins out of 9.
2nd and 3rd in drivers' standings.


If the Subaru should be cut - then it would be preposterous to not cut the Civic Type-R?!?!

I don’t even know what the criteria is for engine power or how it’s worked out. What is the formula for calculating the power of a given car?

I don't think there is a calculation or formula.

Instead, the regulation is applied when the Administrator thinks a boost change is necessary to 'equalise' the grid.

The throttle body size and/or restrictor and/or the maximum permitted rpm and/or maximum permitted turbo boost of individual cars may be subject to review and validation at any time during the Championship by the Administrator, who may implement a variation by way of a Bulletin issued by the Co-ordinator giving a minimum of 24 hours notice.

I did wonder if the BMW had been given a more generous engine power offering in the light of the fact that in previous years, the draggy 1-series has been quite slow in a straight line.

Its frustrating not knowing where teams really stand with this as once again the details aren’t ever released to the public.

The boost reduction also includes Jelley's 1-Series


It was touched on during qualifying but it was originally going to be handed out to the WSR cars towards the end of last season (despite the 1-Series being a brick in a straight line) but the organisers held off implementing it.
