500 LAPS???? Jesus Christ.
That's what I'm thinking. With so many series running around the globe, gotta have GT3 size grids.
People have done the math using a 2 min, 30 sec lap time. 21 hours. Without yellows.
Really like the idea! Heard they were aiming for around 40 cars. Given the amount of championships in Europe alone, I think they'll be in the ball park for that.
Was wondering how long it would take them to complete 500 laps. They probably should just bite the bullet and make it a full on 24hr race based on those numbers.
The question is, are those regular TCR cars or "updated" versions like they use for example at the Nürburgring 24 hours race with e bigger fuel tank?
I wonder how many laps they'll be able to drive with the regular fuel tank
GRM to field two Alfa Romeos in TCR Aus.
YES! Best news all year!
Also this. I asked JAS if this car is comin to Australia
Good documentary that I found courtesy of Autosport about Mercedes last year in DTM:
Would definitely help the series for him to join.
Just realised, with Caruso out of a seat, he could probably hook up with GRM again, in one of the Alfas.
Benjamin Leuchter announced in a fourth SLR VW.
Ceccon returns to Alfa.
Well, Michael Caruso liked my post about him maybe linking up with GRM in the ALFA TCR. We'll see what happens...
Hamilton in the BTCC!
SBS to air the Shannons Nationals live this year.
Mark Blundell will be racing in BTCC this year, he used to be an F1 driver and is not Martin Brundle: https://sports.yahoo.com/blundell-returns-retirement-btcc-campaign-080015269.html
An answer to your question? Second Honda for Wall Racing.
As well as acquiring a second Civic for TCR Aus. Wall Racing has struck a deal with J.A.S Motorsport to become the Australian agent for Honda TCR's.
Switching up makes. Hope Mazda have TCR in their future. For now, I'll be about those Alfas.
The Civic is still the best looking out there, for mine.
Still a few months to go before the season starts. Really intrigued to see how big the initial grid is.
Seriously, getting Moffat, Caruso, Bright. Even Perkins and a couple others, would make it pretty cool.
Jack Goff doesn't have a drive in the BTCC. For some unknown reason.
Come now, Tim. Get with the program.
Exactly , but probably more up to Rod Nash. It wouldn't hurt for Tickford to get their foot in the door earlier rather than later in case Supercars goes belly up, and having a top tier driver/team like Mostert/Tickford would add a hell of a lot of interest to the category and probably other top team/driver combos as well. Gary Rogers has got the right idea imo .
Sucks that Goff will be without a drive this year, he's a really solid guy with the talent to back it up, really quick. I'm led to believe sponsorship/money may be the reason for his departure, though I could well be wrong, so don't quote me on that.
In other BTCC news though, I had a hunch on this one after the rumours of him wanting to depart from BMR, but Plato is back in a Vauxhall, once again an Astra, having switched to PMR for this year. http://www.btcc.net/2019/02/20/jason-plato-joins-power-maxed-racing/
In theory Plato should thrive once more, given his performances in a FWD touring car, as it generally seems to suit him better, but we'll have to see, mind the PMR Astra is a quick car/squad.
Perhaps coinicedently, Proctor moves from PMR to BMR, well back to BMR having being part of their academy when he started out in Ginetta Juniors. Will be intriguing to see how well Proctor gets on with the Subaru Levorg. http://www.btcc.net/2019/02/19/bmr-signs-proctor-retains-subaru-and-adrian-flux-backing/.
Yeah, I posted on their Twitter. If they ran the Focus TCR, they'd get Focus ST customers in the door by offering some nice upgrades. Hopefully, Chaz is still running in the 6H.
