i haven't really watched it since the days of the volvo's and alfa's and audi's and vectra's and mondeo's

while the cars were way way different to what you could get in the showrooms, at least they had the rules that they had to be mass produced cars and 4 door shells and then you could do whatever you wanted to do within that bodywork

when they threw those rules out of the window i sort of lost intrest

it was great when they rolled that alfa out with the raised wing and everyone was up n arms about it, even though ever alfa had the raised extra blocks supplied in the boot of ever car they sold to make it "legal"

accident's and crashes don't do it for me either, it was the door handle to door handle racing that maybe isn't as passionate as it was 15-20 years ago, it may just be a case that i've not seen it but last weekend i watched a race and it had all the right ingredients, it just didn't do anything for me but pass the time

Alot of the drivers have moved to WTCC and DTM Championships

BTCC is still very competitive and some of the antics between certain drivers is great to see but got to agree, it's not a patch on the old days.
