A lot of cars at Winton today, a significant number that didn't hit the track too.

As opposed to all the balls supercars has to juggle to satisfy everyone involved to get a 2020 series completed. You'd think TCR wouldn't have such a problem?

They could wait as long as possible. Set a 2-3 month timeframe with even as little as 4 rounds all completed by December? It'd still be a meaningful series all nicely packaged up and done with. You can carry on with 2021 with no baggage.

You could even have double rounds? A Saturday rd1 and Sunday rd2 for example? It's something similar to what I noticed some series that ran in the 80s

They can get away with it as they don’t have the following Supercars has.

Ha! Spoken like a true blue supercars fanboy. Comments spoken like someone who's more aligned with the branding of supercars (at any cost), than actually inherently interested in motorsport itself.

This guy brings up the size of the following as a reason TCR can get away with a compromised racing calendar?

It has less of a following. But even if it had more, it's still in the same position. I was thinking more that TCR doesn't have many (if at all) commercial obligations to meet.

It can delay and delay its season opener. It can compress and further compress if it has to. And get a meaningful season done without compromising the following season. That's just like F1, a series that has a much bigger following and much bigger commercial obligations (troy will be shocked to know F1 has a bigger following that supercars).

In turn, supercars doesn't have flexibility being small can. It's not big enough that it can't take a hit like a sporting competition that's actually big (F1, AFL & NRL).

But that's what you get when people who aren't actually interested in motorsport, express opinions on motorsport.

Doesn’t seem TCR has the interest either a top tier requires. Only 2 people have made a contribution since the 26 of Feb and one of those just to troll you

Yeah this will be no 1 by years for sure.

It may become #1 by default.

knock other categories at your own peril... we each enjoy different groups for different reasons...

as mentioned perhaps they will win by default... if $$ are a bit tighter (which we know they are) then a different category that is growing and can give them good exposure (FTA) at less hip pocket pain may be the way to go.

It is pretty cool that their new calendar includes a little known track in Tasmania.
