I still struggle to take this series seriously. I love the idea for a world championship for touring cars, but the format turns the series into a joke. The races are far too short (so they’re over before they have a chance to begin), and to add insult to injury, the championship is supported by categories that have longer races. As if that wasn’t enough, the primary support series, Auto GP, is at best a supplementary series; it’s only really good for young drivers to get experience racing open-wheel cars when they’re not competing in a more prestigious category (like Robert Visoiu, who is contesting the season alongside a full GP3 Series campaign).
I think we’re better off watching the BTCC than this poor excuse for a world championship
