    Default BTCC Thruxton 18 May - Pics!

    Well, after deciding on Saturday morning to go to Thruxton to see the BTCC & Support Races, it was well worth it! A good day out, with relativly good weather to match!

    Here are some of the many pictures I took from the day: (Please Note: All Pictures featured in this post where taken by myself on May 18 2008. All Images are in original form, other than resizing.)

    Open Pit Lane to start the day:
















    HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship - Round 10 (from bottom of Grandstand at 'Club') The fence was rather annoying so not many from here!

    VXR8 Course Car!






    More Touring Cars Later...


    Meanwhile: Formula Renault UK with Michelin (from the Grid...





    ...then from 'Campbell')




    SEAT Cupra Championship (From 'Campbell')










    Ginetta Junior Championship (Also from 'Campbell'. All drivers are aged 14 to 17!)












    ELF Renault Clio Cup (Again...from 'Campbell')












    HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship - Round 11 (from 'Campbell')






















    Now for the Marshall's Lunch Break during which the BTCC Drivers Paraded on the Podium Truck, and the RED DEVILS Parachute Team Jumped in to see what was going on!












    Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain was the next race. (Taken from Start/Finish Straight....that's a bit bent!)












    Next was the Formula Renault UK with Michelin again, while we wondered around the Trade stands and Paddock:


























    HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship - Round 12






















    Last Race of the Day SEAT Cupra Championship - Race 2







    That took ages! lol, now back to Irmscher Video!

    Thanks for viewing!

    Cool pictures, I am hoping to go to the next, need to talk my friends around; as they are not really into the BTCC...

    I will be going to the Motor Show this year, for my birthday; which they kindly agree to go with me, which I cannot wait.

    How is the Irmscher Video coming alone, any ideas when it will be ready to buy?

    NellyD - Irmscher Video is coming along ok, I'm aiming to have it ready for PVS (8th June) but will keep posted.

    Cheers for the comments. When the sun wasn't hiding behind the clouds, it was lovely! And yeah, I think that took me about an hour to re-size & upload etc! lol

    IMHO i think the BTCC has seen much better days the only major teams are now Vx and Seat - and seat almost seem to be running the show....

    "I remember the good old days" when Ford were in it, BMW too....

    I think ITV are also aware of this - which is why it's on ITV4 these days

    anyway - here endeth my opinions....

    I know what you mean! BTCC in the late 80's and all through the 90's....nothing beats it IMO. Although, to see cars (which under the aerodynamic additions, are standard 'factory' looking shells) and seeing them all dive in from 90+ 3 abreast into a right-left-right, then hearing the pops from the exhausts as they gun it off into the distance.....is pretty good to watch at the trackside!

    I reckon the reason BTCC, and every form of motorsport for that matter has 'calmed down' is down to ONE thing, (well two before anyone says)....Health & Safety!

    Though as I just said, its still great to watch!
