Juntos should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
You could gather those 20 identical TCR cars but you'd still had to find the cash to pay the likes of Huffy, Estaban, Uncle Muller, etc.

Le Mans is the answer. GT on the long circuit, TC and F4 on Bugatti circuit and Karting on the amazing international karting circuit.

If they are really wanting the Motorsport Games to become a massively popular event (Festival of Speed size) then I think it definitely needs a circuit like that. Obviously though, being a partial street circuit Le Mans may prove a bit difficult! Spa would be good too, but then already holds a bunch of GT and TCR events.

Playing devils advocate it's not that simple to rustle up 20 identical TCR cars worth £2m+ at the drop of a hat, plus all the required support. Whatever car and track you pick someone will still have home field advantage.
Anyone who follows TCR know the BOP is highly dubious for starters.


It's their choice to run TCR cars as the Tin Top segment of the event. Plenty of other one make series they could look to.

Ugh. Of all the circuits in France, series always choose to race there.

Pau would have been better.

If it wasn’t located in the middle of nowhere and had accessible roads (the only way in is a single lane road), it would honestly be a fantastic venue..

Definitely. I never really liked Vallelunga's layout before but actually now I think it's a pretty good circuit.

Also if it didn't have the ridiculous run-off areas and honestly a pretty boring layout. For me it works much better as a test track (as intented) rather than for racing.

Of course I would like to see more countries and better drivers but at the end it's about racing and I enjoyed both races.
