TCR UK should be just fine. After all they’ve just put someone in charge who’s been in Asia for 3 decades...

geordiecriag101 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Was at Autosport yesterday and asked the very chatty and friendly people on the BRSCC stand whats going on and they were full of smiles saying everything is fine and not to worry. When i asked about the lack of any news coming out of the show they said that Autosport dosent have the impact it used to and used the British GT's lack of attendance as an example.

I also asked why was TCR UK not put on the British GT support pack and the answer i got was track time, or lack of would be an issue and also behind the scenes politics as well.

So I'm still none the wiser whats going on, also the brand new white Hyundai i30 TCR they had on show was borrowed from a German team for the weekend and not not being used over here.

Whats the issue with track time?

They'd only need around 2hrs of track time over the entire weekend, especially if they did away with the 30mins of pre-race nonsense on the grid.

I don't know if this was sarcasm or not, but touring car series in Asia had pretty thin grids under Sonenscher's watch. I'm not holding out much hope with him being in charge over here.

Originally the Asian Touring Car Series, which plodded along with grids of about 12 cars for years before it ended. It was taken over by IMSP (Danny Stacy Chau) in 2012, renamed to Touring Car Series in Asia and entries started to increase. Subsequently, he ran TCR Asia, which in its 4th season last year only attracted 10 points-eligible entries, of which only 7 completed the full season.

On last years other driver form/ ability to actually drive race distance Dan could still get some podiums then! Maybe Sports Direct can sponsor him to the tune of a few good pairs of running shoes...
