Is the TCR Australia stream super laggy tonight for anyone else or is it just me?
Yeah, keeps freezing. Seems to be okay now.
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.
Hope you're up to speed now. The cars are awesome on this high speed circuit.
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.
Good good race. I won't spoil it if someone hasn't watched it.
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.
Update from Sam Tordoff concerning his participation in the rest of this year's BTCC season.
My thoughts go out to him and his family during this difficult time.
Meanwhile, after losing one of his sponsors prior to Knockhill, Nicolas Hamilton is set to skip the final two rounds due to additional sponsorship issues. A massive shame for him and Motorbase; I hope he can build on what he has achieved this season and get something sorted for 2020.
Peugeot Sport are sending a 308 along with driver Aurelien Comte and staff for the final round of TCR Aus in November. With the car to stay in Australia afterwards.
Hopefully this means we'll get at least one Peugeot entry on the grid next year.
Great! It'll show how quick the thing is. Regardless of driver. KR need to jump on those with a quickness!
Also, the Peugeots scheduled to race in TCR Japan, have been cancelled.
Michael Caine to take Hamilton's place for the final two BTCC rounds...
...his return marked by a new livery for Motorbase's third Focus.
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.
Well. I got that right.
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...
If any gtp members live around there, would be cool to visit.
This is good
The Cupra news is good. The 308 coming and staying, Mazda joining next year. Hopefully KR can keep the Opels and Subarus running. Might start getting close to BTCC levels of different brands.
It's likely that the Mazda3 TCR is being unveiled today.
(Insert all the fainting gifs)
Agreed, looks awesome!! Hopefully we’ll see a few next year in MPC!
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.
Two or three for TCR Aus, please and thank you.
