Csaba should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid

So here we have the entry list for this weekends first round.
Basically no new driver or unconfirmed team. 22 cars, which is ok, but nothing impressive. I'm a bit disappointed for the JSB team and Julien missing. We will see if more (not just wildcard) drivers will join for the later rounds.

In my opinion 22 is enough, more cars means often also more crashes and safety cars.

Very good quality overall, I think there 8-9 drivers able to win the championship! A bit oh a shame to not see Julien Briché in this season because he was a really good touring car driver, very fast and aggressive

Anyway, I predict Azcona will be flyiing in this first round but I'm very curious to see the Elantra in action. Also the olde RS3 will be very fast in Slovakia, maybe faster then the new Elantra who knows...

I think the Hyundai will be really fast until it gets more compensation weight. But SLR (fortunately for everyone else) has no 4 potential champions Azcona will be a tough rival every round, as will be Baert, and hopefully Borkovic- not in that meaning of the word tough

I don't really know what to expect from the Honda drivers.

Your are right about Azcona, at least in free practice 1. So far the Elantra's outside the top 10.

That I think it is just sandbagging and getting used to the car. Is a really new car compared to the opposition. We will see after the qualy.

Don't expected Coronel pole but I was sure the game was between Audi and Cupra

I'm sure the new Elantra are struggling with the set up because also in the USA they are not really convincing right now. And I'm sure that the new car has been realized with the aim to get the best from the BOP to boost the car
Anyway for now just a flop with this new tyres, but very happy to see Jelmini cutting the gap and finishing in decent position with the best time in the team

A bit disappointed by Young but surprised by the pace of that young spanish, Isidro Calleja! Also good job by Girolami, the brother of the WTCR driver Nestor!

Dominant win by Azcona.

I am sure the Elantra becomes a front runner. Langeveld already showed good pace.

Very few emotions in this first race. Azcona one of the best together with Nils!

Missing Mark James in commentary, but the ex TCR Germany commentator is improving at least.

Racing was decent. Mikel Azcona put on a clinic in the Cupra.

Even as I liked him, over a full race length he was often boring, or was a bit late with observing a lot of action. This was improved a lot when he was joined by drivers such as Comini or Vernay.

Ben Constaduros was commenting right?
