But... GT spec... y'know.

In other news (and I know it's sacrilege for the touring car forum!) the GT Cup race on Sunday at Donington was brilliant.

Nowt wrong with GTs in my book. Happy memories of when there were GTs on the same bill as the Touring Cars. Loved the noise the Vipers and Saleens made in surround sound from the Donington infield!

Indeed, nothing wrong with them! I suspect they're built a little more on the robust side compared to the TCR cars though, given that they run rather longer.

There was a 25+ year old Mantis, a Mosler MT900 and a bunch of rather more modern stuff running at the weekend. The Mosler was thunderous

He's been wearing a new groove into Pembrey these past few months doing development work for JAS. They want the championship.

Something will be wrong with the point system if Lloyd doesn't win it, though.

if you remember in the early part of the 00 the FIA GT was combined with the FIA ETCC in the LG Super weekend and it worked really well

fans of GT racing came to see events, fans of touring cars came to see that too and fans of both had wonderful weekends

I saw that, in a masterpiece of creative prose , Autosport devoted two whole pages to the Croft TCR race , whilst not mentioning that only eight turned up - or was it seven ? Apparently 'traffic ' was an issue..Yeah, of course it was .

I love the TCR concept don't get me wrong, but the TCR UK promoter needs to do something different for next year to attract a grid.

So do I, but - as we all predicted - there just isn't a need for a TCR series in the UK. Both the Clio Cup and Mini Challenge are much better alternatives at that level.

That'll be all those pesky Yorkshire free range sheep cluttering up the lanes 😁
