I am a bit worried about NGTC and Alan Gow.

Basically the BTCC will turn into a silouette series, with different bodyshells but the same running gear and engines..? also no rear wheel drive and no manufactures input am i right?

With WTCC and STCC, DTC AND ADAC (German touring cars *not DTM*) all having the same new rules of s2000 1.6 turbo engines i fear that this could be the death of the BTCC unless we follow suit. look how poor the BTC spec cars were and finally Mr Gow changed his mind back to the same rules as WTCC.....

The BTCC has gone down hill with this rule change!

Very Worrying times for me and many BTCC Fans.

Not sure what you mean by how poor the BTC cars were as they had to be ballasted to stop them beating the S2000 cars. The reason Gow went down the S2000 route was to allow teams to run ex wtcc cars.
