    Is the TCR Australia stream super laggy tonight for anyone else or is it just me?

    Yeah, keeps freezing. Seems to be okay now.

    Jeez, Morcom.

    Dramas for Ingall. Cox in the Alfa is able to keep pace with Girolami. Moffat got a good start as well. Racing looks better each event.

    Their website wasn't working, SpeedCafe wasn't working either. Went to their facebook page and it's fine, though something REALLY strange is that I am hosting a watch party for it and my feed it several minutes behind everyone else watching. Race hasn't even started for me yet. :lol:

    Watching the standard feed now and it's up to date. If I try to watch the feed in the facebook watch party it's WAY behind. Not sure what the deal is there.

    The cars and liveries look so different than on tv, ay? So fat and stuck to the ground. Liveries look professional. I still recommend people see these cars in person. They'd get a real appreciation for all TCR/WTCR series.

    A strong start for Jason Plato at Silverstone this weekend - he tops BTCC Free Practice 1 for the Power Maxed Vauxhall team. Leading championship trio Turkington, Jordan and Cammish finish the session 12th, 5th and 2nd respectively, with Ash Sutton's Subaru slotting between Cammish and Matt Neal in 3rd.

    UPDATE 1: Plato goes fastest again in Free Practice 2, with both Halfords Yuasa Hondas of Cammish and Neal close behind.

    UPDATE 2: A close qualifying session sees Plato claim Race 1 pole on his hunt for his first victory of the season. Chris Smiley and Matt Neal round out the top three in their FK8 Hondas; title protagonists Turkington, Cammish and Jordan will start 6th, 7th and 14th on the grid.

    Congratulations to Tom Ingram and Jack Goff for their victories at a soaking wet Silverstone today. Missed the first two BTCC races as I was away, but what a topsy-turvy end to the weekend!

    As far as championship standings are concerned, Colin Turkington goes into Brands Hatch GP with a 16-point advantage over Dan Cammish, with Andrew Jordan just one point behind the pair. Should make for a tense season finale...

    It's likely that the Mazda3 TCR is being unveiled today.

    I like that they went with rounded off fender extensions instead of the tacky square ones that almost everyone else uses.

    Are those RAYS wheels(I'm in my phone). Trying to zoom in and can't make out the name.

    If they are, the Maaza Axela diesel in Super Taikyu run RAYS on that and their Mazda Demio diesel.
