Backagain has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
They could run with the Excels although they may get left well behind. Do we really need another feeder series especially one that's as boring as bat***t to watch ?

A sorted TCR car will lap around the same pace as an average GT4 car at most circuits.

They're lightyears ahead of an Excel or Pulsar in terms of build and specs, let alone pace.

Will there ever be enough to run as their own class?

Sure they can run with AGT and at the 12hr but they are too expensive for what they are.

It is probably though a sort of modern version of how racing was in the early 70's, if we're honest.

I think the manufacturer interest will be in selling cars and making profit, and having other people do their advertising for them, rather than factory cars.

They're apparently fairly cheap to run. Sure, they're expensive to buy upfront, but they hold their value pretty well.

A lot of smaller teams are running them with crews of 2 or 3. No ongoing development costs, as that's done year on year by the constructor.

I'm not really sure where they'll fit in. Probably AGT Trophy.

There's two 2017-build Audis on RacecarsDirect for ~$170,000AUD each.

Seems to be about the going rate for most TCR cars.
