I'm pleasantly surprised to say that Superstars will be visiting the UK next year, at Donington Park: http://www.touringcartimes.com/article.php?id=5637

That's awesome. The cars are great, a load of European/American Saloons with big V8's. Including BMW's, Mercedes', Audi's, Cadillac's, Chrysler's , Jaguar's and even the new Porsche Panamera. Definitely worth going.

this is good, dtm should pack itself into a suitcase forever and let there teams run in the superstars series as it's better in every way.

It's a shame that the Donington round clashes with BTCC at Croft though, i would like to have gone.

Some Lexus IS-F's will be entered into the Superstars Championship next year: http://www.touringcartimes.com/article.php?id=5662

These are the manufacturers represented:

Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Jaguar, Maserati, Mercedes, Porsche and most recently Lexus.

I'm definitely going to Donington for this, it's going to be epic with all these gurgling V8 saloons.

Well, its the most exciting thing in touring cars at the moment. It rivals some sports car series for manufacturer diversity.

I'm not sure how the series has grown, its done so in an extremely discreet way. I hope lots of people attend the Donington round. bounce

i will go if i can

i think it's the openess of the rules that has got so many teams and manufacters in plus it's unique. It's not for 3 series bmw's or audi a4's it's for M5's and RS6's and there's nowhere else to race them anywhere.

Yes but look at it this way Nick, Look at how many Btcc events you have been to over the years, Last year you went to every single round. Do you not fancy going to watch something new?.

I am very tempted to go to Donington for this as its a new series to watch. ( I am guessing the support series will also be at Donnington. Some nice GT cars in that.)

But am unsure if I will be making it too any motorsport events this year at all.

I guess will have to see what Donington has to offer spectators when we go in April, after all there was nothing back in September so some progress must have been made.

Thats it, I've decided, Am defo going to this now. Sorry BTCC but you will have to miss me out this year. 43 cars on track down the crainer curves ten

Although I would imagine a few won't turn up due to cost issues, But will still be a pretty big grid. Sadly it doesn't look like the GT cars will be coming over either.

There is even a Panamera racing in it Laughing

I did watch the season review on Motors, which must have taken them all of 2 minutes to put together, the quality was that shoddy. Videos on YouTube have more effort than Motors made!!
Be interesting to see if Fabrizio Giovanardi and Johnny Herbert are racing in the series this year.

This could be Europe's NASCAR done the European way. 43 cars (the same car count), all road course's, big gurgling V8's and angry and feisty drivers - a load of Italian's!

I doubt it will even be shown in the UK live, but we can only hope.

We would be lucky to get 10 minutes on BBC 4! Sad Sad

Motors TV could do with showing a decent series live, and quit that motorcross crap.

Well Motors lived up to expectations with their coverage, the commentator is so dreary and full of mistakes he makes Carlton Kirby sound professional!!
Still not sure about the quality of racing, Monza Mercs were dominant and Valencia the Maserati seemed to be best car, the Merc got away better in race 2.
Portamiao (sp?) is next up.

I was going to go, but I have other things to attend - chiefly among my Brands Hatch trackday which is very close to Superstars.

As am travelling down in my mates BMW and being from the North east I guess We will have to support the ROAL Mot - orport ( Raul Moat) Laughing team.

I just hope it's not pissing it down. I can put up with showers. Got a big tent thing this time around so should stay quite dry.
