I imagine Ant will be the class of the field in terms of talent, I hope it's not wasted with the Subaru.

Agreed - whilst it's good to have variety on the grid in terms or manufacturers/models it's no good if the cars themselves are junk.

Hopefully the grid numbers will increase again - I might actually go and see this championship live next year if they do. The cars themselves certainly look the part and it all started out sounding so positively, maybe that initial promise will finally be realised.

I wonder how they will brand the series next year. According to the 2021 published regs it was 'Volkswagen Racing Cup incorporating Goodyear Touring Car Trophy & TCR UK', although the website also refers to it as 'Goodyear Touring Car Trophy incorporating TCR UK. By the end of the year there were no VW Cup entries and the only TCT entries were TCR cars.

MMVRCIGTCTTCRUK
I missed out the overall series sponsor (Maximum Motorsport)


Of course what I meant is, do they drop the VW Cup and TCT elements of the name as it has become just TC UK

So had the NGTC entries all vanished as well by the end of the season? If so it makes sense to brand it as TCR UK (assuming they have enough entries to form their own grid).

They had no NGTC entries for the final 2 rounds

All entries were TCR cars

Each round had between 12 and 16 entries across the whole season

I believe the Volkswagen Racing Cup had the championship permit - hence why the name continued to include VW Racing Cup after all the cars had stopped racing.

I'd love to see TCR take off in the UK. I can appreciate the challenges involved with already having the BTCC as the "premier" tin top championship.
