WTCC in the USA

23 Sep

If you want to see some bumper to bumper racing, the kind that is equal parts SCCA runoffs and the bumping and grinding scenes from Days of Thunder, then tune in to Speed Channel today at 10 PM Eastern tonight for WTCC.

World Touring Car Championship is non stop action with every major manufacturer participating. Chevrolet, Mercedes, BMW, Seat, Ford combine in a field that’s 30 cars deep. They bill themselves as “Real Cars, Real Racing”, and it really is. This is the 3rd most popular series in the world behind F1 and WRC and today’s race in Sonoma is the first time it’s in the US. Props to Speed for covering it same day.
