I read with interest that RenaultSport has just launched a new Megane TCR car.

Also, VW have sold their first TCR Golf to the TCR UK series which kicks off next year. Sources say these cars sell for 95,000 for the DSG cars, and 115,000 for the SQ-box'd ones.

The car has nothing to do with Renault Sport.

Swiss team Vukovic Motorsport has unveiled a newly constructed Renault Megane of TCR specification, built with authorisation from the French manufacturer.

Looks good! Shame it's not an official RenaultSport car.

170,000AUD which seems steep for a souped-up production based VW Golf. But it does have nice kit with the fancy shock absorbers, ECU, sequential gearbox and everything else.

Surprising how roadcar-like the engine bay is in the Golf. Only noticable differences are the airbox and the intercooler.

Makes you wonder somewhat where the 95k Euro goes!

Presumably into everything else that bolts to the car.

The dampers, fire suppression, dry-break fuelling, cage, etc wouldn't be done half-arsed.

Not to mention the aftersales support they offer.

Still the numbers don't really stack up, given the price cap, it is a bit of a cartel.

Well, they also have to defray their development costs, i.e. stuff like wind tunnel hours, track tests, time on the shaker rig - and the associated man hours.

Indeed. When developing and building a new car not everything is a tangible product such as car parts etc. The manpower and resources used to develop the car has to be paid for somehow.

Interesting to see how many cars they can get. I'm a bit surprised it's happening, I didn't think the interest would be there to run them here from a historic aspect. I should be at this event with the Superkarts, so hopefully a good number of Super Tourers are there too.

Maybe we can get a bit retro when this event comes around and revive the "02 astc" thread

There's chat of a few cars from NZ coming over, but yeah I can't see any meaningful grid numbers.
