Rickard Rydell won it in the Volvo (Who said Volvo's were slow?!) followed by Anthony Reid in the Nissan, James Thompson in the Honda, and then Alain Menu and Jason Plato in the Renaults. I think Nissan also took the manufacturers championship and I remember it being really close for second, maybe between Volvo and Renault.
Surprised there's no videos of some classic British Touring Cars in here! The first one's a real classic, 4 guys going for the championship in the last race of the season, tempers flaring everywhere, everyone driving ridiculously close to each other, just brilliant stuff:
"I'm going for first!" LMAO. Great racing, great drama, great commentary! This might be one of the best racing videos I've ever seen. Coulda swore car racing was supposed to be a gentlemen's sport!
In other news, here's my thoughts on the "We need to talk" threads. Here we see the red bike get a bad run through a section, so he camps on the inside of the corner so that the blue bike can't pass him. It was a little dirty. Guy on the blue bike handles it like a racer instead of whining days after the race on the Internet. Bonus at 12:22!
Best, most original, most pure kind of racing ever. Period. Regular guys like you and me, with a passion for racing. 1 rule, go as fast as you can. Just you and the track against time and other racers. On very narrow roads, hills, straights, 1cm away from a wall, ...
I had watched that before but with no sound, I was so confused last time as to why Whincup was slow in this video but the best in all the others, lol. Gotta be heartbreaking to coast across the finish line thinking about how you could have conserved fuel more aggressively.
