The Super TC2000 cars use proper road car chassis. But they have rather advanced aerodynamics.

TuteZaek should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The TC had its first race at Viedma this weekend, Ardusso remains competitive and won the final race, with Torino, followed by Ortelli (Chevrolet) and Werner (Ford). Defending champion Canapino (Chevrolet) ended 15th after starting from last row.
Rossi (Ford) didn't race, it's suspended following last year final race incidents (and his protests against ACTC)

The first 10:
1. Ardusso (Torino)
2. Ortielli (Chevrolet)
3. Werner (Ford)
4. Pernia (Torino)
5. Urcera (Chevrolet)
6. Di Palma (Dodge)
7. Castellano (Dodge)
8. Spataro (Torino)
9. Trucco (Dodge)
10. Aguirre (Dodge)

Being a first race, the balance of the cars seems ok(ish) with some inconsistence for Ford, capturing 3rd place but the next one being the 12th of lambiris, not taking into acount that the (till last year) best car of the brand didn't race.

The last weekend started the TC Pick Up championship.
There was the arrival of the Fiat Toro, which looked fantastic. Also the incorporation of the model S10 "La Chiva", which are added to those that already raced in 2018: Ford Ranger, VW Amarok, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Hilux.

The TC Pickups race on the same weekends that the Súper TC2000. That's why Chevrolet doesn't allow their brand on it.

They got Mazzacane, Ortelli and Pato Silva, the rest of the grid is rather unremarkable.

Toyota switched fuel-oil sponsors from Axion / Mobil to YPF.

So, watching the first STC2000 race with the turbo engines, i will miss the music of the radicals.
The launch control is still messy and various car had problems (Rossi, Werner, Llaver)
The Hondas have chasis desing woes (admited by the team principal Rosso) and currently are the weaker car
The Renaults are still the dominant car it seems.
The Toyotas are a small step behind (in this race at least) but fast.
The rest are in the same ballpark, the new aero formula + engine seems balanced
About the aero, the Citroens are the only ones with (big)sideplates in the rear wings, all the others are really simple

Cars that sound boring are somewhat boring to watch. But what about overtaking?

Well, Rossi (Toyota) gained (after starting from last row, and having problems with the LC) 10 places, with some nice laps against Werner, but other than that, the corolla was faster than the others, so it wasn't from the new aero per se.
At the front it was 3 cars with no chance of fight between them.
I think that other circuit (Alta Gracia is the testing lab of almost every team) and a bit more of experience may change that.
Other thing that surprised me, every car it's from a official team, no private teams yet (That should change in the future)

29-year-old Santiago Mangoni won his first Turismo Carretera race at San Luis with Chevrolet.


The next TC race is at Rosario, which is being extended yet again to acommodate the larger cars.
