it can't be called sense when it's the third rule change in four rounds
comment of the day
After last weekend's fiasco anything sounds good to me.
Lets hope this makes us better
I can't decide whether their meddling is good or bad.
There is always a risk that says if you allow different formats of vehicle into a race series there will be pro's and con's. You'd think they would get the standards ironed out pre-season rather than making tweaks on a race by race basis, probably in reflection of each race result. Remember in the 90's when the Audi A4 Quattro was inflicted with ballast which made it uncompetitive in the BTCC. All that happened was that Audi pulled out as they couldn't effectively compete.
With the BTCC/WTCC series now being down to so few cars manufacturers, you would think they wouldn't want to upset the marques they have left.
Im really surprised that the boost pressure has bein upped to 2.7 from 2.5........
SEAT bosses must have had some strong words for the organisers
My guess.........."It's our home event, a partisan crowd, and if you F**k us up with the rules it will be our last event senores!
so the petrol RPM limit is allowed to be higher than a standard car and the diesel RPM is limited lower ???
i know there are other rules etc but wasn't the 'success' ballast supposed to countermand any dominance?
Jaime Puig is a tough cookie - they all are...I think it smells suspiciously like a revolution...there's been a lot of bickering for years and they all need things to change dramatically to justify a continued involvement from a manufacturer point of view...if there's any point in even trying.
Makes sense to have a 'non-economic' reason to pull out doesn't it? Less damaging for the industry and now they all have a bouyant 'customer' base, what would be their (BMW and SEAT particularly) point in staying? The simple reason for doing it (WTCC) is for exposure and if someone else carries the batton...?!
Jaime will always have something up his sleeve !
Dont think it matters much about the rpm for the diesels. I remember a clip of Darren Turner doin a lap in btcc and he was changin up just before the limiter anyway.
YeahI guess their words were "We're off after this season!"
it amazes me how the FIA can just change the rules as they go along. if there is no consistency then it makes a farce of the whole season.
I wonder if they have changed the rules for the safety car, or can they just pull out in front of the leading car and trash it!
looks like the Seats are back in front for tomorrow! good news
Its a good track for FWD so lets hope the FIA leave it alone
good to see a Seat got a 1,2,3 on Race 1.
Looks like SEAT back on form
