This little tidbit comes from Longroofan (Thanks Man!) from his . It features a promotional video of the Italian Touring Car Championships called Superstars. Want to see it? You will have to make the jump…..
First of all, European Touring Cars have it all over our North American Cousin, NASCAR, and for two very good reasons. First, they are run on Road Courses exclusively, no high banked ovals. These are the same courses used in Formula 1, with demanding turns, elevation changes, and impossible straights. And second, you can recognize the cars; They don’t all look the same; They have unique powertrains; And get this, there are at least two American Sedans in the running!
I took the liberty of going over to the Superstars site and borrowed some of their images for this post. Take a look at the gallery, and you will see a Mercedes C63 AMG, a BMW M3 E90, a BMW 550i, a BMW M3 E92, a BMW M5, an Audi RS4, a Jaguar XF, a Porsche Panamera (!), a Maserati Quattroporte (!!), a Cadillac CTS-V (!!!), a Chrysler 300 SRT-8 (!!!!), and a Chevrolet Lumina CR8 (Which can only mean that this is a Holden Manaro VXR-8 – Our late and lamented Pontiac G8). Holy Crap, what a lineup.
Want to see what NASCAR could be? Look at this video, and weep.
