trebor901 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
plus no 1600cc turbo road cars will meet the length regs etc for NGTC so i cant see it being that either

Agree but for example RML Chevrolet factory team entering BTCC isn't changing the series dramatically.

Different race format?


I am afraid this news will be a disappointment.

There's no good to that perspective at all now is there! Touring Cars without contact is like F1 with overtaking

I think it may well be a race format change - sprint and feature?

"No contact" and "punished for putting others off track" is not exactly equivalent...

it better not be back to 2 races cos that will suck, because you can bet your life it will be 2 shorter races to cut costs

maybe return of pitstops? one lap shootout for qualifying?

like i said earlier its absolutely endless as to the possibilities

Why would it be when ITV4 recently announced they'd be expanding from 6 hours of live coverage to 6 and a half? Surely Mr Gow would have told ITV the changes (if there were any) before they'd come to that deal?

4 races would be cool but would make the series look desperate for coverage

I think it'd be over the top. I think the BTCC's three race a day package is the perfect balance, especially amidst it's previous support packages.

Would 4 races per round not also put more costs on the teams to as well?

Maybe the introduction of Super Production based second class to make up for a lack of entries?
