It's a crying shame Dario's achievements have been ignored by the media again. In part, you would have hoped they might have accidentally read a paragraph or two about what Dario has achieved in the United States whilst rushing together pieces on the disastrous Las Vegas IndyCar season finale, but...

Former European and British Touring Car champion Fabrizio Giovanardi has had a very limited programme in motorsport this year. The 44-year-old Italian entered the FIA European Touring Car Cup in July with Danish touring car specialist team Hartmann Racing, and won the rain hit event with relative ease, taking pole...

Nine wins from ten races. They're also certain to break the record for number of wins by one manufacturer in a year and then some. It's utter domination, it's boring, it's unfair. So say some people anyway. Is it really that unexpected? And should it really be forced to be... Continue reading

Absolutely. I haven't gone into that element in detail, but that's also what TOCA can now do that they never could before. They did that with the Arena Motorsport Fords at Snetterton last year, when the regulations were less clear for the 'alternative fuel' teams.

British Touring Car Championship organisers TOCA have (not unexpectedly) implemented some more technical changes ahead of next weekend's race at Oulton Park, in a statement which appears to have been misunderstood a little bit in some circles. Series Director Alan Gow has made a point of promising equality between all... Continue reading

Just for a bit of fun, just trying to put together the right cast list for a movie that no one will ever be making. Looking for drivers from the British Touring Car and World Touring Car Championship's mainly, but feel free to venture off to drivers that aren't too... Continue reading

With more cars switching to the low-cost turbocharged engine this season, we saw a greater variety in terms of lap times and speed at Brands Hatch. So who's got the best car for this year? There are two obvious pieces of data to look through; lap times and speed traps.... Continue reading

As you can see in my WTCC preview here on TouringCarTimes, the World Touring Car Championship is implementing a new reverse grid system from this weekend's opening round. Excerpt from the preview: In order to prevent drivers from dropping places or hanging back at the outside of the top eight... Continue reading

Today saw a pretty important moment in the current changing world of touring car regulations, as the Scandinavian Touring Car Championship confirm it will adopt the Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC) model currently being introduced into the British Touring Car Championship from 2012. The STCC, born back in 1996 modelled... Continue reading

...or was it diesel? Anyway, Gabriele Tarquini's back, as Lukoil join SUNRED Engineering for the 2011 season. Thereby allowing the pseudo-independent outfit to continue for another year, with manufacturer SEAT pretty much out of world motorsport entirely following the closure of its Supercopa & Eurocup series. Alexander Dudukalo is the... Continue reading

The 2011 motorsport calendar is already a waste of time. There's not a lot really going to happen, and we may as well skip straight on to 2012. Okay, I'm probably overdoing it a bit, but with so many 'transition years' for championships planned in 2011 in terms of technical... Continue reading

The outcome of the 2010 World Touring Car Championship was controversially decided in the courts and not on the track for the first time in the championship’s six year history. A quick reminder, Yvan Muller had picked up his second WTCC title one week before the final round in Macau,... Continue reading

A quick re-cap, as it was so long ago. 2009 champion Colin Turkington turned up with Dick Bennetts' highly proficient West Surrey Racing squad for three rounds of the WTCC earlier this year. Colin hadn't raced since the finale at Brands Hatch in October 2009, where he'd clinched his first... Continue reading

BMW Motorsport have today confirmed that they will enter the DTM in 2012, after previously agreeing to enter the championship alongside Mercedes-Benz and Audi in principle earlier this year. via Well, a new manufacturer entering a championship is usually never bad news. But now we begin the long wait... Continue reading

Is dropping back to gain pole position for the next race in the World Touring Car Championship really a bad thing? Continue reading

The FIA have not punished Ferrari (anymore than the $100,000 fine already imposed) for using team orders in Germany. Here's why I think that's a good decision. Continue reading
