Well, I think the car looks quite good. I'm looking forward to seeing them on the grid.
I'm on this Loeb getting WTCC title if the car holds atleast Top 10 Potential
Oh my, they didn't joke around when they say next year cars are going to be more powerful... 380hp, in a front wheel drive, going to be interesting for sure. On the car, it looks good, looking forward to seeing it on track
380bhp isnt much more than they have now and they have limited slip diffs so not really an issue with the fwd thing
well atleast an additional 60-80 hp, seeing of how much this does in KERS is quite something still
They could bring this to pikes peak and still get a decent amount of a rallye car if they will.
As far as I know, Cruze's 1.6T engine has 310hp, so around 70hp increase and more developed aero should make these a whole lot faster. I don't think I've ever seen before a fwd race car with such power
Not sure why they choosed the low-cost model for the WTCC instead the DS4 for instance.
I thought wtcc is RWD, BAH.
The BMW is the only RWD car in the WTCC.
Must say the Citroen looks fantastic.
Xosé Estrada From what I understand they opted for this model because of marketing benefits. With the Western-European car market almost at a standstill and this model being built for the Eastern-European, South American and North African market it makes sense to use this model over the more expensive DS cars. The potential sale numbers could be big if this car scores strongly.
Gosh you would almost think that this and last years "choice" of "quality" race circuits would have something to do with marketing benefits
Lets hope when the economy is out of the crisis the WTCC chooses to visit the UK and Germany again.
Yeah right now they rather have to rely on their own series tho, the bigger series are there but UK has BTCC still, germany a mix of cups.
DTM, GT Masters and VLN are quite growing.
And both have PCC and Scirocco Cup but having another mixed entry would be cool.
It seems weird that F1 grows every year and small series struggle to fill the calender.
This is the second season of WTCC I've watched (was previously unable to see it where I live - and I absolutely love it!) so go easy on me if I am wrong, but isn't the next race at Argentina a new track for WTCC? Is that a good move?
And, what tracks were previously in WTCC that you'd like to see return?
