BTCC discussion

Recommended Posts

I was looking forward to having the Halfords Honda colours back on the grid, the Integra they used to run in those colours (and this goes for the Civic EP3 they ran in 2004 as well) is one of my favourite touring cars ever. But I could not be more disappointed in what this years Honda looks like. The livery is so bland, just a load of solid black block shapes on the car. No imagination or creativity at all, and also lacking in sponsors massively. Much preferred the red/white from recent seasons. Definitely doesn't look like a factory effort, looks quite amateur to be honest.

@MBKF1 I finally found it! About half a year after we were talking about it I found the video of the last lap of the 2004 Brands Hatch race!

YEEEAAH! Amazing find, thank you, I've been wanting to watch that again for ages!

The grid then was tiny compared to today, only 20 cars in the race, and 8 of them retired so only 12 cars at the end!

Lol, I don't think we even found a store selling stuff last time, you'd probably pay a lot more buying it at the circuit.

I was gonna go to Silverstone but it's the day before I start at uni so it would have been too tight. Such a shame, but hopefully next year!

Screw Uni, going to Silverstone is obviously much more important  :p It's going to be Dave and I, and maybe Luke if he's still up for coming.

That race 3 incident was nuts, one very lucky cameraman to escape without injury.
