After following touring car racing for all of my adult life,I am afraid that I may decide to spend my Sunday afternoons doing something else because this form of racing has become far too politicised.Todays racing was more like motorised chess and did not show the cut and thrust that this type of racing was once famous for.I sense that the races are decided in the boardrooms and behind the pit counters and this is not what I watch motorsport for!

Smokin'Jo, I flicked over to watch the somee of the race (during the ads) as the Aussie supercars are getting too boring.

That last crash was lucky it didnt end up worse then it did, the rules state....
Double waved: Reduce your speed, do not overtake and be prepared to change direction or stop. There is a hazard wholly or partly blocking the track.

Maybe they should cancel a few race licenes, as all too often drivers are ignoring these flags!

smokin jo. wtcc had the makings of a great series, of particular reference to road cars. but as you say, the skullduggery of seat in particular, is bringing the sport into disrepute. unfortunately bmw have joined their trickery. there are supposed to be NO team orders, yet monteiro, (forecast by the commentators) suddenly backed off on the last lap of first race, and then to make it look less obvious, let a few more cars through. i wonder why there was no sanction against seat for that most obvious race fix. i guess i will still follow it, but it stinks. thank goodness etcc is expanding next year!
