Great drive by Coronel.
Also Gavrilov is racing since at least 2016
2016- TCR Russia- Seat Leon Supercopa
2017- TCR Russia- Seat Leon TCR
2018- TCR Russia -Audi RS 3 LMS TCR/Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR
2018- TCR Europe- Volkswagen Golf GTI TCR
2019- TCR Russia, TCR Europe, TCR Italy, FIA Motorsport Games- Audi RS 3 LMS TCR

So he is not a rookie, but he is pretty good. I would say same for Dusan Kouril.

They surprised me the most. In good way

If these "Motorsport Games" are meant to be some sort of Olympics of motorsport, then we have a long way to go. The organisation and race directing have been embarrassing.

Another day, another suspended GT race, another delayed touring car race and everyone is standing around waiting for the start...just because.

Yeah. Replays are pretty terrible too. Definitely doesn't feel like we have the best representation of every country either. Though to be fair it's only the first year and the racing has been very good so far.

So much for an Englster walkover!

Kinda the second, at least. It's based on the Cup of Nations that FIA and SRO ran last year.

Looking like this might end up being a SC finish for the TCs. Or a 1 lap shootout.

On the plus side, the streams are good quality.

Good finish to a poorly run TC event tbh. SRO/FIA can learn a lot from how well BTCC days are run. The turn around they have between races is butter smooth compared with this event.

More on track running, less drifting, eSports and karting needed.

There was that lol. But! The individual streams had the right language. So I switched to that. Waiting on GT race now.

Generally good racing throughout the weekend. Too many interruptions for my liking though, it makes the sport look a bit of a joke when it's like that.

I'm not really keen on drifting but at least it's spectacular & takes skill to compete in. However, as it's a judged competition where the winner is effectively chosen based on the opinions of a few people, it means that it isn't a sport, IMO.

eSports are fine. Doesn't take up any track time and it wasn't actually a bad race.

Short races like F4 & touring cars need to be run over a number of laps instead of time. Safety cars take up a huge percentage of the race when they're timed. Those two disciplines produced the best racing of the event though.

The GTs should have been so much better but the amateurishness of it all made it hard to take seriously. OK, the weather can't be controlled but there was no need for the stoppages to be anywhere near as long as they were. To quote myself from another forum during the first race:

Quote:
Basically, the race has been stopped because useless amateurs can't be trusted to keep it on the track. It's high time that race orgainsers stopped actively encouraging mediocrity with this driver grading rubbish.
Encourage professionalism and quality please!

Ideally, the event should be held at a venue with a karting circuit so that they can race instead of doing that slalom sideshow. If they want an event like that then autotest should be considered for the future.

On the whole I'm a fan of the concept of the games. Hopefully it will get bigger and better.

The drivers should have been the cream of the crop, in their respective nations. Either front-runners, or recent champions. I felt there were quite a number of nobodies, and drivers that are typically grid-fillers where they normally race.

I thought the commentary was disappointing, to be honest. Mark James, and maybe Stefano Comini would have been a better choice. Both know TCR and it's drivers very well, and do seem to work well together.

Besides that, the racing that I saw was very good.

I assume it was a pay to drive event?


Don't understand why they were using different cars in an event like that. If you're comparing drivers across nations then the playing field needs to be even with everyone in the same model.

Whole thing just seemed really weird. Most people in the YouTube comments didn't have a clue what it was about and why some countries were represented and others not (no Japan in drifting for example). Just seemd poorly publicised and run to me.

The cars are BOP'd as part of the formula.

Playing devils advocate it's not that simple to rustle up 20 identical TCR cars worth 2m+ at the drop of a hat, plus all the required support. Whatever car and track you pick someone will still have home field advantage.
