WTCC is going to Sonoma this weekend. I'm pretty interested in this, not so much WTCC itself, but to see how touring cars race at this circuit. Auto GP is going too.

At least in WTCC, I hope it isn't a snooze-fest like IndyCar is. I would have preferred the short course, but they do have bumpers to use... Wink

Auto GP Race 1 is live on Eutosport on Saturday, with Race 2 and WTCC live on Sunday.

Wtcc is as worthless a world championship as wrc or fia gt1. None of them deserve the name.

Maybe BTCC should be called world, whilst we're at it.

I'm still interested in the Sonoma round, but not much else.

It always has been, the racing and competition is at another level in BTCC. And embarrassingly, BTCC has more car brands represented.

Touring cars is about using the bumper, yet in WTCC drivers get peanlised...boooo.

I think touring car racing only works as a national series.

I think it would work better on a more international level if the engines were gurgling V8's and with RWD. I would run a global stock car series, you could even call it a touring car series as they have roof's, bumpers and fenders.

Touring cars is a saturated market, road course racing with stock cars is not. From seeing the Euro Car Series; with the low downforce, long braking distances and fabulous noise - I think it would work better than WTCC.
