WTCR 2019 Race of Portugal

Interestingly enough, official WTCR site shows that they are going to stream FP2 and Qualifying 1 via Instagram page

Last year we had to play the very long waiting game after Race 1 was red flagged for a crash & a repaired armco

Apparently Eurosport doesn't have people on site to broadcast the Free Practice 1 today.

This series needs a new promoter as Eurosport simply do not care. They were so intent on showing three blokes waffling about Superbikes that they missed the start of the race. Not that you can actually race around Vila Real, awful circuit. Neal needs to go as well, the bloke doesn't have a clue.

Norbi won at a canter.

Ha, just came on here to say the same thing - they missed the start of the race!

Agreed Pimmy, this series has been an absolute mess since it went to TCR rules, sad because there is so much talent and so many cars on track but the product is just awful.

Its not the TCR part that's the problem, its the tracks/poor BoP/Eurosport that is the problem.

Infinitely agree. The problem is not the TCR regulation but Eurosport Events and BoP.



Vila Real is a challenging track, but it can only deliver boring races. But we all understand that money buys TV time and that's all it matters for the fellow guys in Paris. When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money.

In my opinion, such tracks as Vila Real should have a place in the calender (fast, challenging street circuit).. but not tracks like Marrakech which are neither spectacular nor challenging

The KCMG performance is very suspicious.

Yes, at least it’s good to watch the cars at Villa Real, Marrakech is just horrendous.

Anyone wanting to watch race 2 will have to wait until 5:30 am because Eurosport couldn't be bothered to show it this afternoon, neither live nor in the form of highlights before race 3. Today's qualifying session wasn't shown either.

Genuinely happy for Monteiro to win his home race after such a difficult 12 months.
