Keith, i’ll be at Thruxton this year and the next Brands Race. Never been to Snetterton, going to have to try it some year.
Ned, BTCC is a series that doesn’t have the best drivers admittedly but there is something about it that lures me to watch it. I guess since I’ve always been a fan since I first saw Rydell battling with Menu back in ’97 I’ve always been hooked, it’s just pure action. I feel late 90′s and early 00′s were it’s best days since I genuinely believe the class of drivers were quite high.
Of course since funds were cut from the series the attraction for drivers in that field of Motorsport is to go to WTCC but I find BTCC much better. There are aspects that people dislike such as success ballast but it’s just part and parcel of the sport, and I think it makes the racing much better.
But WRC is ok, that’s it though. I respect the drivers immensely but watching a car go through a stage is plain boring unless you’re watching Loeb, Kimi(Mainly for the crashes, shame he’s left) or Hirvonen. I would much rather watch a grid full of touring cars battling it out than follow a glorified time trial.
