And no Audis either! It's interesting that in PWC (Pirelli World Challenge) in America, with a similar # of GT3 entries, there are Porsches, Ferraris and Audis, and an occaisonal Aston Martin, but no McLarens, at least so far! Different GT3 series in different countries!

I've seen worse the BTCC Levorgs have colours to match their name
Since when has British GT ever featured that?

This car started to look good after it got covered in dirt (more photos from Oulton Park: https://www.gt-report.com/2018/04/03...-park-gallery/)



The Barwells, Balfe McLaren and blue TF Vantage do look pretty good to me. The rest of the cars don't have anything that stands out. The TPR Bentley looks like any other Bentley.

To be fair, there were a few very good ones in the early years... EMKA McLaren comes to mind, as does the Blue Coral and Pennzoil Porsche 911 GT1. New Castle United Lister wasn't half bad either.

I was making a wider comparison as I had assumed , mistakenly, was obvious. BTCC did use to run with GT series at same meeting , on occasion - and at least one meeting I attended , also with F3 . That was back in the day when British F3 was probably the 3rd or 4th most important single seater series in the world too.

Giving full points for 4 laps behind the safety car a bit of a joke.

Having watched the C4 highlights, have to say the race was good as ever. Well done Johnny and Flick

Having enjoyed Oulton I am toying with..ahem ..the Rock this weekend . I have only seen ASCAR or whatever it was called and that was on the oval of course(and compared to the real deal it was simply dire) .

But what is Rockingham like as a spectator proposition for conventional racing ?

Mixed bag in my view (based on BTCC meetings) - on the one hand, from the grandstand you can see every part of the track with the exception of the chicane, and I also quite enjoy spending some time watching from the roof of the pit garages.

The downside is that in the grandstand you're a long way from the action, and (for good reason) you can't watch anywhere on the infield past the back of the paddock.

If taking photos is your thing it's pretty poor, the only real options that I can think of are the main straight from the garage roof, and the Tarzan hairpin through the fence at the back of the paddock.

Also the grandstand faces roughly noth east and the forecast is for 9C and 15mph winds from the north east!

I like the place for spectating, but even in the summer the grandstand seating is in the shade and can be quite chilly.
