About time they got this sorted. Poor driving, or rather banger racing style driving has been the bane of BTCC, spoiling an otherwise great championship. Drivers need to be educated that it supposed to be non-contact. Nerfing cars out of the way is not acceptable at what is supposed to be the pinnacle of domestic saloon racing championships. Drivers should be penalised 5 seconds each side dent or lost door mirror, and 10 seconds per front end dent if the manoeuvre that produces the damage results in gaining a place.

Sanitisation of the sport will lead to alot less overtaking thus making the sport less appealing to spectators, I really do hope they think this through btcc has lost the appeal it had during the 90s and was on the rise but this could hurt that rise.

If you are only marginally faster than the car in front and he is allowed to drive defensively he can block you everywhere, they need to look at v8 supercars it has a good penalisation scheme
