A wild 2014 Spec Lada appeared!



Whoever designed it must've just watched this commercial and went, "YES, I want that and the black and white."

It's been some time that I can't watch BTCC (well, Brazilian DirecTV is b****, you know, they have a rivalry with Fox Sports, so they won't add FOX 2, to the channel list) but is surely great news.  Very Happy

First time I've heard of it, but a DTM championship has been planned for North America: http://www.touringcartimes.com/2013/07/13/dtm-america-postponed-until-2017-at-the-earliest/
http://www.touringcartimes.com/2014/02/11/us-manufacturer-needed-for-dtm-america/

Memories of some of the disastrous US motorsport creations of the late 90s (NATCC, USF3 etc.) comes to mind, i.e. no more than around 10 cars.

Great ITV docu on the history of the BTCC in 3 parts. I would suggest Episode 2, shows the greatest period with the death of the fantastic Gr. A period and then into the early years of the greatest period in BTCC, Super Touring.

I think the first race in a BTCC Race meeting starts around 12pm GMT, 2nd race starts around just past 2pm GMT, and the 3rd race I think starts just past 5pm GMT as well. There are also Support races that take place inbetwern those races, so you can watch them if you want to, and I recommend you should because they are fun to watch.

Race 1 of BTCC @ Donington was won by Jason Plato.

Race 2... craziness so far! Two safety cars so far, 1 for everyone spinning off on the first lap and the 2nd for a huge crash with Robb Holland and James Cole. Lots of rain!

MG take a second 1-2 finish of the weekend; this time the younger Sam Tordoff takes his 2nd career win over Plato.

I really thought the stewards would get Shedden for cutting the course...glad they didn't. What a finish!

Turkington's face in that in-car camera after the race was too painful to watch, close to tears.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to catch Marrakech WTCC, but the track usually puts out ridiculously awful (driving) quality races. AutoGP's 1st race at Marrakech this year was truly hilarious.

For Paul Ricard, WTCC was (mostly) clean apart from Loeb doing his best to impersonate Jason Plato.

Simon Belcher has just FLIPPED OVER THE WALL in Thruxton Race 3... 2nd car over the wall this race weekend... Nick Foster in Race 2 as well in the same corner; Churches.

EDIT:

Needs something down there to slow them down, not sure about a gravel trap though.

It looks more like he went through the wall to me! I would expect a stronger barrier than that on the outside of a corner.



Nice to know that he's alright.

I think I'm right in saying that it's also the same corner Marcel Albers was killed in British F3 back in the early 90's and another big crash in F3 during the mid-90's and I don't think the corner has changed at all since.

That corner hasn't changed since the circuit was opened and I think the tyres were put down after Alain Menu put his Renault in the ditch there in the 90's. I think they could do with shifting those trees back and putting in a proper fence, however you have to bear in mind that this is a circuit that is ran by the BARC, who have a habit of running circuits with ancient facilities (see Mallory Park, Pembrey, Croft and here). Belcher was lucky those trees weren't particularly strong in this case, but being an ex Legends driver I'm sure he's used to some crazy accidents. Albers I believe was killed on the run up to the chicane in a very similar accident that killed Geoff Leadley a few years ago, Leadley's accident looked very similar to this crash that happened to Chris Mealin on Saturday:
