Default "I want you to go back out on that track and hit the pace car."

Wasn't sure if to post it in Motorsports or here. Figured it'd end up here. (and did search, found nothing.)

CN: Leader does not expect safety car to come out this lap...

Wow, is it normal for so many people to crash into the walls and each other?

What the hell!? That entire 2 lap video looks like a goddamned destruction derby. They weren't racing so much as smashing into each other/walls. :|

Someone lobbed the link onto my facebook page. I don't normally watch WTCC, at least not since the last time it was on Speed in some other incarnation.

I do wonder how you say "boogity boogity boogity" in German.

IIRC they do race pretty hard in the clips I've seen, but that track at Pau looks like they're going down someone's back alley. I'm not surprised at all the wreckage.

Indeed.. This was pretty cool. We need more racing like this and less Nascar.

From the few that I have seen, yes. Similar to BTCC.

At first I thought this was going to be cool racing, but it ended up being bumper cars.

Reminds me of my daily commute...


A NASCAR sprint car can slap the wall at 180 mph and still win the race, and these things just fly apart by bumping each other at 50 mph.. Foreign cars are so crudely made.
