TN regulations are pretty tight, as far as I know. But a good car builder will always have a slight edge.

Last weekend, the Súper TC2000 raced at El Villicum. Mat?*as Rossi was first at the finish line at the sprint race, but penalized with 45 seconds for exceeding track limits. He argues that everybody else did, so he refused to start the feature race, with support from the Toyota factory team.

Yes.


He was also a longtime MotoGP announcer and briefly a CART analyst, both on ESPN.

Toyota coming to the TC championship in 2022!
The brand and the ACTC announced the introduction of a new car in the form of a Camry silhouette for the 2022 championship.
Is the first new brand and model for the series in decades, and could open the door to a modernizatión of the models represented in the TC.
The question now lies in the balance of the new model against the other 4, that aré already pretty tight. For now It seems that it will use the Cherokee engine, same as the Torino and Dodge, and same as on those, it should have an unique power profile for the model (the Cherokees on those aren't on the same specs, the Torino are reving higher, to almost 9000rpm and have more power to compensate for the brick aerodynamics of the body)

The fans critize the cars not being production based or having the original egnine but swear by the trueno naranja, the liebres and the "Lets weld a Ford t chasis to the structure so the car Is production based" Pronello Huayra Ford v8 (ironically the succesor trueno naranja Chevrolet Is the same car basically)

On another tune, the Ford chasis that is the only one based on the old structures because aventin doesn't seem too liked by the technical departament.

This is BIG news!

If I understand correctly current cars are based (or at least some body shapes) on cars from the 70s. Does this mean the Toyota is based on the first generation of the Camry?



To be honest the shape of a 70s Carolla would make more sense:
