It's not going wrong at all as those tiny hatches are slower than average grandpa riding a cycle.

In the UK we have it on Eurosport 1, Eurosport 2 and Eurosport HD! 3 channels of it. Sometimes the HD channel carries different programmes, but not today.

What a great circuit. Racing could be really good tomorrow. Maybe Chevy won't win this one...

I bet RML know smth. Or they have extra 100 kg. There's no other variant.
In fact, long corners as at Brno are good for BMWs, but it is difficult to understand how Norbert was able to put that lap with maximum ballast on.

I guess the local audience (if there is any) is rooting for Michelisz. The circuit is located right next to the Hungarian border and, if I've got it right, majority of people on that area are ethnic Hungarians and speak Hungrian laguage.

Not sure about 'if there is any', they are expecting a huge crowd.

This is turning out to be a really bad weekend for AON, after 0 place drop for Nash neither finished race one.

I think Tarquini should have gave back the spot he won but nudging Michaelisz as they usually do in BTCC. And looks like he didnt get any penalty either. Glad Muller got the penalty, he just ram Michaelisz.

Best WTCC race weekend in quite some time, especially race one. Slovakia Ring keeps on delivering great races, I hope they get more international events in the future

I have only seen the second race. Interesting to see Tarquini and Muller fighting it out. Hopefully we can see more of that soon. Muller did a great job keeping his car on the track after the tap from Tarquini. Gabrielle fairly took his foot from the accelerator and Muller could keep his place. But I guess that Tarquini would have gotten a penalty when Muller had spinned.
That would have been a great help for Coronel, who saved quite a few points from a midfield gridspot. The fight for best of the rest will be exiting again!
Oriola is really a guy to watch, he was fast again!

I like this track! Good racing.

Shame Michelisz was hit by Tarquini. He deserved a podium.
After qualifying it looked bad for Coronel but at the end he can be satisfied (at least I am ). The fight for 4th spot will be very interesting.

Seemed like a pretty packed event actually, if the TV pictures are anything to go by... good promoting from organizers I'm sure. The races itself were surprisingly entertaining, too.

If last year's crowd is anything to go by, Hungaroring is going to be mad. Especially if their 'hero' keeps pulling rabbits out of his hat

Good track, good racing and a good crowd. I would love to see them come back for next year. Shame what happened to Michelisz, but I hope a works team picks him up for next year. With some more experience I think he could go far.

On the subject of Norbi, the race I've been looking forward to is this weekend...
