BTCC @ Croft

The BTCC is visiting my local circuit, Croft, this weekend. As I'm otherwise engaged on Sunday I was wondering if it would be worth paying a visit on Saturday for Qualifying?

Bit late I know , but I would have been there normally this weekend for the whole of it, but I was otherwise engaged (well trying to be anyway - see my way off topic thread )

Good circuit though Croft. I went there exactly a year ago when I was visiting the North York Moors. That was when there where 12 cars racing in the BTCC

I assume this was what was shown on Sunday afternnon, 17/7 ???

Great action as usual. Its been a couple of years since I seen a BTCC in the flesh but they are in Mondello, sount of Dublin next weekend, should be worth watching.

Do you get Motors TV BB? They show it all live, much better than the piecemeal ITV coverage.

Re: BTCC @ Croft

Personally I'm so disapointed with the BTCC these days. 10 - 12 car grids don't make good racing especially when two of the cars have no idea.

Bring back the mid 90s with Alfa, Ford, Audi, Renault etc etc/

WTCC in my mind is a whole lot better and was great at Silverstone. Thinking of having a road trip down to Spa for the next ound.

Agree and disagree. It would be a nightmare if the racing wasn't actually close, but fortunately it is, as Jason Potato demonstrated However, having attented a meeting this year, I would say that it's far better to watch on telly than at the track, otherwise you're just sat waiting for a good minute until the bunch of cars run by where you're sat. If the racing wasn't so close this year, I think BTCC would have been dead already.

I was at the WTCC at Silverstone too, and there wasn't as much overtaking from what I can remember. More cars doesn't necessarily mean better racing. However, the future for BTCC does look grim, as I believe SEAT may be concentrating on WTCC in the future and a couple of other manufacturers want a go at WTCC too. Hopefully this won't turn out to be the case, as the other races that take place at BTCC meets are on the whole really good to watch too, it has to be said.
