so, bmw, now that you know that the leading seats were legal, you should now go and improve your cars and make them fully competitive. why, even chevrolet (nee daewoo) are trouncing you! and they arent diesels!

What you fail to mention, Rich ard, is that the only reason SEAT and Chevy are beating BMW is they've got dispensations to compete at the top. There's so much politics in the series it almost negates any reason to develop your car, when the FIA will just give a flat floor, plastic windows etc. to allow others to catch up with your cars.

I'm not trying to provoke or anger anybody just expressing an opinion - but am i the only person who thinks the WTCC is the dullest championship around? Or it is the eurosport coverage? they tend to make everything dull.

I just find it so painfully boring i couldn't care less who is excluded or wins or whatever.

Is this just me???

No Bob it is not just you it IS the most boring racing around. Not sure if it's Eurosports coverage or just the racing. I used to record it and then watch it when I had time now I just don't bother. :?

The politics that go on in WTCC are destroying the Championship, what makes this worse is the fact that BMW are such bad losers, they dominated the Championship for years, they lose once and now they are crying about it being unfair. BMW benefits from dispensation also, they are aloud to run 15kg lighter than the others due to having a rolling start??? :?
The BMW is by far the most aerodynamic shape and so the flat floor is given to reduce this gap to the others. Plastic windows are only given to help achieve the minimum weight, BMW benefited from this last year.
I'm not saying it's all fair but BMW benefit more than most so stop whinging and compete!
