The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.

Talking about illegal cars:


Quote:
Late in the evening after Saturday’s race 1 and Sunday’s race 3, several cars among which the one of Vernay were disqualified, as the tolerance of the maximum boost pressure had been exceeded. Leopard Racing Team Audi Sport notified to the FIA their intention to appeal the decisions to clarify the related matters in the additional period resulting from the appeal.[/FONT]

You forgot to mention that is country that pays the most to host a WTCR event. If your customers do not feel like they are being engaged, what reason do they have to remain engaged or connected with you?

That's why those two Hondas got so fast. Reach for the stars because the moon landing was fake.

So, I recorded the early morning broadcast of race 2. I should have known better and recorded the preceding programme as well, as the race was already on lap 4 by the time the alotted broadcast window began. Utterly useless.

I'm happy for Azcona. He's going to win a lot of races if he keeps this sort of form up, it's just a matter of time. A front runner in the SEAT León Eurocup, TCR Europe champion and now a winner in WTCR, along with being the most consistent driver in the series.

I really like this street circuits like Vila real or Macao, even if Racing is limited. But it is a bit like a natural race track and of course very challenging.


And as Ehrlacher said, he had more fear in Vila Real than on Nordschleife...


I don't see any problems with Tiagos win, as he was there already very good in the past. Of course home crowds can give extra power. And of course i really don't see any reason, why JAS himself should be slower than All-Inkl.com before...

Vila Real is always a good crowd. Its better than on many other tracks, especially without local heroes like Norbi or Tiago.
So go there again, it has a lot of drama and races are not that bad....

But Eurosport is as always a PITA. You never know, where it broadcasts a race or when. I don't understand, how you can act so unprofessional as a sport channel since more than 20 years...

I wonder if Matt Neal was reprimanded for suggesting that Catsburg took out Guerrieri on purpose to help his teamate. I like Matt as a commentator to be honest, but I think it is unfair to suggest that, in reality you can see Catsburg knew his best chance to make positions was lap one and he got a nice run to the outside, at the same time MA made it three wide on the inside on a narrow section of track. It was a racing incident nothing more IMO. I think sometimes Matt lets his Honda bias show a bit!

Thanks,
Jeff.

Crowds don't give you 1 second from Saturday to Sunday

Agree

But also Hyundai 'loosing' 1 second from Saturday to Sunday is suspicious.

That is 'natural' sandbagging from Hyundai. FIA Compensation Weights are eating (or hitting) the championship credibility.

"The change was that for the first time this year, the German Münnich Motorsport team and the Hong Kong KCMG squad began to share data, which saw a remarkable turnaround in performance on Sunday, with KCMG, whose drivers were both in the bottom three of the championship ahead of the weekend, locking out the front row of the grid, with Tiago Monteiro going on to take the victory."


At least the time was inside the car, as both Argentine drivers were able to be on top in every race.

I don't know exactly, what could be the reason, that JAS understands their own car not as good as Münnich did, but its not impossible.
