Going to be great to see them using the lights. The Saturday program will be fantastic.

It’s an interesting occurrence D’Alberto’s big championship lead given how much he extended it over the weekend despite never really being up the front. Mixed up results and different winners is what every series strives for in 2022, but it does muddle you the championship picture and the consistent accumulators are the ones who benefit.

While Kelvin certainly had a part to play in super touring vs V8Supercars, his involvement in the Bathurst war was just a bit part.

Bit quiet in here.

Some news though - it has taken a LONG time and I was openly skeptical it would ever turn a wheel, but the Corolla TCR car has apparently passed it's homologation test:

Why the skepticism? It's an oficial inhouse TGR project, and TGR Argentina has a long and successful history of making this kind of touring cars.

Currently the rumors talk about 5 cars in construction already, but no word on where they are going.

Because it was announced every year for about 5 years before it turned up.

And that’s definitely a worry, the Supercars have a constant news cycle and constant fan engagement about the series. Speed Series/ARG/TCR the fan chat is non existent between events sadly.

Agree 100%. I think if anything the profile/promotion of TCR has been seriously lacking.

IMHO I think they had a good chance of attracting the casual viewer and partially interested motorsport fans like myself.

I noticed on Stan sports, after watching the 3 sessions of the last Indycar round, when the session ended up popped an advert for the coming TCR round.

How come no one wants to watch Supercars because it is not on free to air but it fine for TCR to sell out to a Streaming service without a single whimper?

In a world that already has too many streaming services, Stan just doesn't make the short list.

I love watching TCR around the world because it's on YouTube.

So I guess I'll just watch overseas TCR.

If you are interested in TCR and general SpeedSeries chat, the podcast “Motor Racing Passion” has an episode out now talking about the last two rounds heading into this weekend, and other SpeedSeries chat in general.

Being overseas - that was how I used to watch TCR Australia - until the recent broadcast changes.

yeah it was on the 7 (cr)app for locals, but no more.

The Stan broadcast is slick but this household has already too many subscriptions, and Netflix didn't even make the cut - Stan is a distant entrant into that market.

No second Wall Racing Honda this weekend. Are Stan no longer willing to pay for it?

And no Brad Shiels in the Tilton Hyundai either? Will these two no show’s be back at Sandown?

Not to mention that Mineef stepping into the ex-Macdougall Forza Audi was a net loss as the VW was parked too.

Wouldn’t want it to drop any further than the 18 seen today

Anywhere to watch race 2? Motorsport.tv haven't made it available, much like Symmons Plains.
