Yes, cause you can't do proper racing with six entries.

Cinghio44 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Team Cupra confirmed the three drivers: Ekstrom, Azcona and the evergreen Jordi Gene

Gene is the tester for Seat/Cupra but he will struggle a lot imho with this format, given also the fact he has limited experience with rwd cars... it was better to choose someone quicker or at least more talented

--------------------

Vernay was announced with Romeo Ferraris but then he's been confirmed by Hyundai and he will develop the Veloster ETCR. Very strange....

I take it you are overlooking the fact he is both a former F3000 race winner and Le Mans class winner, both driving RWD cars?

He has a really big experience but those successes came 20 years ago or more...

Surely he is a perfect testing drivers but racing is very different. If you compare him to people like Ekstrom, Farfus, Vernay... in my opinion he will struggle but Cupra maybe choosed him for feedbacks and not result. I don't know......

I thought that FE has clearly shown that EV have nothing in common with racing. Maybe they are good for 2-3 minutes of rallycross or 10 seconds of burning tires for advertising, but for racing - no way. Super amazing marvelous Jaguar Trophy as a clue.

The powertrain doesn't make it good or bad racing. Track size/type, vehicle type, driver skill, etc make good racing.

Stick the ETCR powertrain into NGTC cars, on UK tracks with the current BTCC drivers and the racing would be as good as using 2.0 petrol engines.

I think if you would put any racing SUVs with stock engines on tiny, narrow street circuits you would get the same level of action...
