More power, more sound, bigger wheels and a more aggressive look. Sounds a bit like they're going down the NGTC route. Could make WTCC much more entertaining. Not a big fan of 'push to pass' though, don't think touring cars need it personally.

Of course, BTCC has it's own 'push to pass'. It's called Jason Plato!

What the need is longer races and better circuits that actually allow for overtaking. Why do they race at the East Circuit of Suzuka where no-one can pass?

Bring back the core races to Europe, much the same as F1 needs to come back "home" instead of these Tilkedromes in the **** end of government-subsidised nowhere.

I bet the BTCC gets bigger crowds than the WTCC.

LOL, massive cheers at Knockhill thanks to Smith & I got it on camera :-)

They definitely need longer races by at least 50% ! As for the tracks, they are mostly OK except indeed Suzuka East which may indeed be a result of having races that are too short. The championship could do with 2 or 3 more week ends.

It's a nice thing to make the WTCC sexier but staying relatively close to production cars is also important and what makes this World championship potentially interesting.

I look forward to the future of WTCC with the additions of constructors like Honda, Citroen, possibly Renault and maybe Toyota.
