Bit plain with nothing on the sides but I do like the stripes on the Alfa. Looks great.
Can't wait. Plus... better than nothing.
Carrera Cup driver Michael Almond to pilot the #29 i30 for Garth Walden Racing.
No factory support is disappointing, but it looks good.
I think I'm the only one that despises the look of the Alfa Maybe it will look better with a complete livery but I won't hold my breath.
I'd read that before my last post .
Rullo put it on Pole and they go: "Oh, yes! We fully support Kelly Racing and all other Holden Astra teams."
Rullo finishes last: "As we said, we'll keep an eye on TCR Australia, We 100% support the Supercars Championship."
For me, it's just about the Alfa name. One of my favorites is the 156 WTCC. Also, of course, the 155 in ITC and DTM.
The TCR car's looks depend on the livery:
Just doesn't feel like much effort
Anyway, glad there is sponsorship. As long as the teams keep getting money and the racing is good, I'm happy.
Livery wise the Astra might just be the best looking car on the gird so far. Looks superb in Castrol colours.
Shame its not on a Civic. Missed opportunity, Todd.
On second thought, I'm fine with that. Get that GT Sport livery ready. My favorite number too.
My favorite touring cars are the 1992 Alfa 155 GTA (with the 2L turbo I4) in that deep red Martni livery of the Alfa Corse team from the Italian Superturismo and the 1993 Alfa 155 V6 Ti in DTM also from Alfa Corse - could be either from Nannini or Larini, I'm impartial that way. To make the picture complete, I need to add the 155 TS from the 1994 BTCC, obviously Alfa Corse driven by Tarquini. I have vivid memories watching some of those races on Eurosport in English, the nineties were such a great time in touring car racing (at the time I didn't speak any foreign languages and I'm not native in English )
I want those cars in a modern game like right now
Another Alfa I like are the Go&Fun sponsored car in TCRJ. Japan do liveries so right.
Motorsport.com have just announced that they are going to stream qualifying and all three races this weekend. So that's another option.
Is it too late to take back what I said before about the Astra having the best livery on the grid? The Subaru looks fantastic.
Shannons Nationals are going to show the full program for Saturday and Sunday (S5000 demo ): https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/05/15/shannons-nationals-streaming-to-span-two-full-days/
Looks great doesn't it, and as an Subaru owner you can guess who I'll be going for (although Honda was a close second, I've lost count of how many Honda motorcycles I've owned)
And the grid is full : https://www.speedcafe.com/2019/05/16/cameron-completes-maiden-tcr-australia-grid/
Not quite as good looking as Molly's but at least it's got sponsorship.... and probably more chance of a win.
That's easy. I just change the colors on the Castrol one I made.
Post it when you are finished.
I was a bit worried after the SBS announcement that they wouldn't do the stream on the Shannons Nationals site anymore. Great that they are streaming both days.
Wall Racing for me. Just because I love the look of the Civic. There isn't a bad looking car on the grid though.
When it comes to looks, I have to agree with @Spacegoat, all TCR cars look great. However, like everyone, I have favorites too:
Alfa Guilietta TCR: it's Alfa, nothing more needed
Audi RS3 LMS: I drive an A3 Sedan (2.0 turbo quattro), I don't think that more explanation would be needed
Hyundai Veloster N TCR: I know it's the same as the i30 but it looks soooo much better
VW Golf GTI TCR: I feel ashamed because in general I hate the Golf (along with the Passat). However, the GTI is for whatever reason is exempt from that hatred. Perhaps it helps that I test-drove a Mk V GTI back in the day before I picked up my '06 Focus ST (the one with the inline-5 turbo) and it was definitely a great car
It's a shame the Alfas are pretty much the most unreliable cars on any grid in any TCR championship around the globe...
I had hopes to see Spoon or Mugen enter a CTR in the Asian TCR championship, but it looks like it's not going to happen.
I haven't seen Spoon's presence in racing, since the Rigid Collar S2000, maybe 2-3 years back in S-Tai. Would be nice though.
Edit: I'm mainly happy Saitama Toyopet are in the series. No top professionals allowed(which means no Hattori-San), but should be a good watch.
That ALfa looks the business
I posted the Subau liveries in the Australian liveries thread.
Michael Almond tops the first practice session.
Hopefully if he keeps showing pace like this. He'll be able to put a deal together for the full season.
Hyundai off to a good start.
Parity adjustment coming up???
I think that's the same up North. BOP adjusted for the strong i30s in Europe. Also speaking of up North, look like Canada are TCR ready as well.
Catching up Saturday night and watching Sunday afternoon, is going to have my TV, laptop and phone on overload.
Not as cold as I thought it would be.
