Cool touring car photos and videos from the past and present day

With some weeks to go until several touring car series have their first event of the season maybe it's a nice idea to post photos and videos of touring cars and touring car racing.

I start with, in my opinion, two cool videos:

Youtube: DTM History - The Golden Era

Youtube: Leon Burdon's Historic VK 202 Turbo Sports Sedan Group C Commodore Baskerville Historics 2022

It's not cool, but I was absolutely astonised to see the safety standards in Argentine tin top racing in the late 80s...

There are people that want to go back to that saying that "today's pilots are cowards" and the like...

But it was fun nonetheless, that TC2000 era was really good (If only Ford had some interest in building a serious team using the Sierra to compete with Berta's Renaults...welll, then during the 90's they poached Berta and dominated)

Probably not the most exciting, but I think it's cool. Probably the only footage online of the South East Asian supertouring era. Season review of '98 featuring a good squabble between Hong Kong racing legend Charles Kwan and Thai racing legends Kasikam and Nattavude. Quite a varied skill level across the grid, but a lot of the slower drivers stuck on for a while and eventually won races at Macau.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnPE...ndex=10&t=353s

This one has far more excitement to it. Jordan Cox being a mentalist at Bathurst's Skyline for our pleasure:

Talking about Volvo, and with the Toyota Camry toying with the victory in Turismo Carretera:
This is the only non traditional 4 TC (Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ika-Renault) car that won a race on TC: The Volvo 122 1.8 SB diven by Carlos Pairetti

Great!

Here some more ST cars:
Super Tourers put on a show at Goodwood

Still great looking cars, which do not look outdated.

Yep, yearlong title fight. Colciago took Flash out and later Flash's team-mate Edman in that race. Fisticuffs in the pits after...
