Don't believe the two Vectras are race ready. There are a few S2000 cars around but I don't see the appeal of running one in this type of series.

WTCC TC1 is a non-starter. Very few cars available and too expensive to run.

Assuming TCR UK continues, I don't see any drivers doing TCT as well - most are struggling for budget in TCR as it is without adding more races in another series. Even if TCR UK folds, I think this is too much of a step down for many drivers - going from known, if poorly supported, formula to a rung-what-you-brung club series.

I suspect we will be able to count the number of entries on one hand.
Spot on Redshoes. Couldn't have put it better myself..

I don't see what good further fragmenting touring car racing in the UK would do

I think a lot of people are not really getting the point of this series. This does not step on the toes of BTCC/TCR UK/Historics, but gives car owners extra opportunities to use their cars. There are quite a few Supercopas and TCR cars out there racing in a variety of classes and series, they can now race directly with other touring cars without the high costs of TCR or BTCC. It gives car owners more chance to rent the cars out and it also helps to get younger talent a taste of modern machinery in a competitive environment.

Bump for those who wish to discuss this series.

Team Dynamics with a Civic and Maximum with a Golf confirmed so far.

I think the Dynamics announcement will help this series a lot - seeing a big name deciding to have a play will boost the seriousness of the championship and hopefully make a few others commit.

There seems to be lots of interest around the series on FB

Having a big team like Dynamics will raise the profile of the championship. That is just what the series needs

As TCR cars can be used here, I dont see any point in TCR UK anymore considering they struggled to get to double figure entries alot of the time.
Do we know if there is any planned coverage for this series on Youtube same as we had for TCR this year?

Indeed, it seems TCR UK will be lucky to get any cars out this coming season
