Edit: My bad, I see this has already been addressed in another thread. Anyway. Why the batman logo? No doubt it’s going to be called ‘The Batmobile’ all weekend! 13th October 2011, 12:29 at 12:29 pm #182405 Don MateoParticipant So far there doesn’t seem to be any explanation for it. I wondered if it was some sponsorship deal, but I don’t think it’s that either. 13th October 2011, 18:17 at 6:17 pm #182406 Bradley DowntonParticipant i thought the car was meant to be green and red? 13th October 2011, 19:33 at 7:33 pm #182407 RatboyKeymaster another new shape on the grid is always welcome, and im glad its a saloon car too not a hatchback. wont be as good as Super Frank though. but I do think he’ll be challenging Tony Hughes Avensis 13th October 2011, 19:33 at 7:33 pm #182408 RatboyKeymaster another new shape on the grid is always welcome, and im glad its a saloon car too not a hatchback. wont be as good as Super Frank though. but I do think he’ll be challenging Tony Hughes Avensis 14th October 2011, 2:33 at 2:33 am #182409 Fer no.65Participant 30 cars is record breaking?????? :S TC2000 usually has 40 cars, with 20 of them entered as privateers. And that’s been the case for years… seems odd the ‘crème de la crème’ of touring car racing has less than 30. 14th October 2011, 6:51 at 6:51 am #182410 Keith CollantineKeymaster @fer-no65 Yes, yes, we all know how great your crazy Argentinian touring car series is :-) Why you should watch… TC2000 But it’s great to see healthy and competitive grids in the BTCC again, compared to how it was ten years ago. 14th October 2011, 10:39 at 10:39 am #182411 PorkapieParticipant Indeed. It wasn’t all that long ago that I thought the BTCC was going to die. 10 cars on the grid wasn’t great! The Insignia looks fantastic. I presume it’s the same platform as the Cruze so it stands a good chance of being competitive. 14th October 2011, 12:51 at 12:51 pm #182412 Fer no.65Participant @keithcollantine just saying. :P I still love BTCC, it’s difficult to erase the memories of the Lagunas, A4s, Volvos, etc… and TOCA 2 :P FYI, TC2000 will have 400 hp V8 engines next year. :P 14th October 2011, 18:48 at 6:48 pm #182413 RatboyKeymaster from what Team Dynamics have just tweeted it seems Yvan Muller may be driving for them this weekend in a 3rd car! with his return and Thommo It feels like the late 90’s again! 14th October 2011, 19:14 at 7:14 pm #182414 Keith CollantineKeymaster @ratboy Wow, that would be a coup! 14th October 2011, 19:17 at 7:17 pm #182415 RatboyKeymaster picture looks odd, it may just be a show display, its number 00 for one thing, think my excitement clouded my eyes, but hope he is on track 14th October 2011, 19:37 at 7:37 pm #182416 Oli PeacockParticipant IM SO LUCKY IM GOING!!!!! If Yvan is there along with Thommo, no car will be safe! #megaexcited 14th October 2011, 19:41 at 7:41 pm #182417 racingfanatic96Participant @ratboy There must be a reason for it. Muller has no commitments this weekend, Honda want to win the championship…nothing stopping them bringing a 3rd car to stop Plato Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 18 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
