It doesn't appear to be... just customers who can afford to buy factory built cars !! ;)

No disrespect to the drivers but you'd want a stronger line up if you were a factory team wouldn't you ?? :)

About time they had some serious presence. Oh for the glory days of seeing the 155 win at Brands!

Richard Marsh is a very good driver, but Dave Pinkney maybe hasn't had the opportunity to shine lately, he used to be fantastic in the Production Saloons years ago in a Sapphire Cosworth, etc...this could be a good chance to show again how good he is...

Eoin Murray is back as well, he showed some promise last year, Have to be honest and admit I haven't watched it much in recent years, but will definitely give it another go this year.

There's two semi-works? (maybe someone can confirm) Alfas in the WTCC, James Thompson is driving for them, first round was a bit of a disaster for them

From the next round at Zandvoort there will be a third 156 racing run by a Belgium team and the driver will be Miguel Freitas
