Great movie and fantastic fitting music. But this nice little short-clip doesn´t hide the fact that DTM is still totally boring.
It might change in 2014… When the Super-GT cars come over…
Heard about it some days ago. Let´s see what changes and how it influences the series. So, I guess it can´t get any worse
Woah! Cool video. I watched all the races this season, and I think they in general were very entertaining.
Just an idea… you can say ” Bullshit” in here, but it should be accompanied by a little explanation why it is your opinion. That way it would become meaningful. Now we just see it as a useless comment.
I missed every race. But in general it´s just because the series developed into another direction as I prefer. I know, there are people who like those kind of cars, probably the same who like SuperGT and this stuff. That´s pretty cool. But I think Germany is missing a great and iconic touring car series.
Are you thinking about the cost cut semi-identical cars thing, or the aero dependant cars themselves?
I think about the aero dependent cars themself. Mostly because they aren´t touring cars anymore but prototypes. So I would much more prefer more stock parts on the cars, more identifiable with the road cars, more resistant and robust, designed for tackling and contact. But I fear that´s part of the technology development and also part of the development of motorsport.
Even V8 Supercars, which I see as the iconical touring cars series nowadays, changes to semi-identical cars, not being stock road cars anymore but being build from stock. Anyway, they still look more like cars, but are really powerful. That´s what I like more than the prototype thing like a Formula 1-car with a complete car chassis.
For me touring cars based on real chassis is the way to go, that handicap it creates and the limited aero that comes with it makes racing much more exiting(old dtm, v8 supercars…..)
I totally get that, but as you say this is the way things are going these days. Cost cutting is all over motorsport, and having close to a spec series is of course way, way cheaper. On the other hand there is pretty much no factory teams left in “proper” touring cars. Both the factory teams in BTCC are pretty much satelite teams, and WTCC (admittedly I havent watched a single race this season) has only the Chevys as far as I know.
ALMS was/is struggling, with a dead P1 and P2 class, and nobody really caring about the Prototype challenge bit. GT was doing fine though. FIA GT1 is dead, ELMS cancelled the last two races of the season, WRC is pretty bleak, and so on. Its tough times for motorsport when the economy is on the fritz.
Yes, I agree. Tough times for motorsport. Hopefully it get´s better.
