If you were a fan of BTCC' super touring regulation era - this week's Autosport magazine is a must-buy.

Oh, it brings back memories as a child. Smile

Practically every car maker that made a family saloon had a works entry in BTCC, the racing was crazy and the mix of drivers was brilliant.

Don't get me wrong, I love today's BTCC - but that was a special time.

Perhaps that era is best summarised by this:

I got the mag, great issue.
I went to most of the ST races at Donington between 1992 and 1999 including the legendary 98 Mansell race and 99 250000 Matt Neal race, thoroughy enjoyed it at the time, although often there was one dominant car, 92, 95, and 98 were great seasons with several makes in contention.
The tv highlights programme really made the series' popularity, wasnt until 1997 that the BBC tried live coverage. Apart from having to hang around or set the vcr with and hour of time either side to allow for schedule changes it was fantastic having another race series other than F1 televised.

I love the current BTCC, but the sheer variety of car makers and international driving talent made it a unique era.

Ah, Mansell's run in 1998 at Donnington - great action!
