    Default BTCC. Ballast!?

    So I've been watching quite a bit of your BTCC of late, and couldn't work out how the Ballast in each car is calculated? V8 supercars in Australia are all one engine, and basically the same car so there is no ballast in the championship.

    Can anyone provide a dumbed down explanation of Ballast in your cracking touring car series?

    Cheers!

    (Just watched Knockhill, Round 8, Jason plato's a bit of a ******...)

    Watch the 1992-1999 seasons of the BTCC, far more entertaining than the current crop of ****e.

    The ballast is known as success ballast and is calculated on the place that you finished the last race in 45kgs, 36kgs, 27kgs, 18kgs, 9kgs respectivly.

    Oh and your right about JP

    BTCC is a hell of a lot more exciting than V8 supercars....
