Matt K should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Yes, all the reasons you gave are absolutely true and logical. But it's somehow sad that BTCC - arguably the biggest national touring car series (I'm not including DTM here) - can't go at least once abroad + once to Ireland while ADAC TCR Germany races in four different countries. But good on them, it's a good calendar and I believe German TCR is the most popular of all national TCR championships.

I heard rumors that some teams barely have money for fuel to Knockhill let alone to go to Ireland.
I heard that, doesn't mean it's true...

This would mean the BTCC seems like a miserable amateur championship pretending to be Britain's biggest motorsport series...

Without wishing this to turn into a BTCC thread, the series doesn't need to go abroad. Their core audience are the thousands of (UK based) fans who stand trackside at every meeting, and the vast majority of sponsors are UK based companies promoting their brand to UK based customers. There is zero benefit to either of those groups from holding a race outside the UK.
