No hype and discussion on tourers? This weekend (April 1st-3rd), we will witness the first rounds of WTCC, BTCC, ETCC, TCR and another round of V8SC. WTCC should be interesting as Citroen is pulling out of factory programme, Honda is revitalised and on full attack, Volvo enters with a formidable factory backing and Lada gets the experienced drivers. Seems like Chevrolet will be sitting this out, point wise. BTCC has also shuffled with driver changes and Subaru factory entry in an estate. With the fiercest drivers onboard they hope to get an impressive start. TCR with its 6 different manufacturers is looking to be the go-to series for the closest racing possible, thanks to balance of performance and diversity. ETCC should offer something decent, but it is properlyin the shadows of TCR. V8SC... is V8SC.
