Re: WTCC in the USA possible..

i think this type of racing will not catch on with main stream americans, look at F1 and Cart(back when it was alive), i feel we americans are too used to driving in only in circles or straight lines...when you throw turns and stuff into the mix we get confused...that type of racing...along with american lemans and rolex, even rally car will only be popular with a small group of fans

touring car still has one thing that attract people to NASCAR, crashes!

To me, touring car is what "STOCK" car racing should be.
