Bamboo leave BTCC for WTCC

http://www.touringcartimes.com/news.php?id=4374

Good luck to them, but i think maybe a bit too early for Harry, he's not won in BTCC, should have won the ETCC cup last year but for a mistake, and he did seem to have a lot of offs last year. But, since his dad has the money, the scaling back of works teams' cars in WTCC will give him a chance.
Darryl O'Young should be good once he's used to FWD.

Tarquini not confirmed yet, Coronel's amnagement jumped the gun it seems.

WTCC considering F1 points switch. No suprise there is there.


The FIA also confirmed that if the new system was adopted, the top eight grid reversal would remain in place despite the points paying positions going back to tenth.

I suppose it means if you finish 9th you at least get points even if you don't get pole for race 2. Still think they should do like BTCC and randomly choose between positions 6-10 to reverse, stop this silly dropping places lark, was completely stupid at Macau last year.

It does look that way, but it depends if sun red can run there team like a factory effort. Ah and get the seat train going that got them lots of points in the last two years.

Can't see SUNRED being allowed to score indie points though, or they'll walk it to the Indie title, same as Coronel not being allowed to several seasons ago.
As already observed too many damn TDI's in the series.

That is a rather disappointing entry list, BTCC will have more car variations then WTCC, with the Focus, Golf and Civic. For a world championship, to only have those three cars competing is rather poor. And only 20 cars as well, the organisers must be hoping that the new 2011 cars with the 1.6 lite turbo's engines will attract more car makers.

Very, very dissapointing news about the Seat's. So lets sum this up: less competition + and the same number of Seat TDI's = poor year. Those Seats better have 150 kg of ballast applied to each TDI car, BMW and Chevy are bothering to stay in the series. Seat bugger off and still form trains. Rolling Eyes

Going to 1.6 litre turbos could be a big set back for wtcc as it'll mean the end of BMW and I can't see cars entering the series when hardly anyone make a 1.6 turbo. A 1.6 NA class would do more for numbers.

Martin Haven tweeted that wtcc should meet up with the F2 round at Silverstone next month, doubt that will happen.

Could be a good race at Zandvoort

With Roberto Ravaglia's team returning to WTCC, in addition to running the Superstars works BMW's, is ROAL Motorsport effectively a factory entry in WTCC on behalf of BMW?

I very much hope so.
