I've read plenty about the 80s BTCC/BSCC, but it's hard to find footage pre-88, so it's good to have the 81 season review posted up. You can also find it on Motorsport TV's site.

That comentary hits the sweet spot of being passionate without shouting like idiots.

Also the aesthetic superiority of the super touring cars is still unmatched.

There's a part season review of the 1984 BSCC available. The one i've got appears to have been an made for or paid for by ICS and Austin Rover.

I have yer to find anything substantial of the 1982 or 1983 seasons.

It didn't appear on 'normal' TV until the BBC showed it on Grandstand. The 1987 season coverage was a Hay-Fisher production that was shown on one of the satellite channels.

Ho yeaah, thank you! Great memories. Blessed times when a poor amateur could race on famous tracks. Like Monaco for instance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek-fCpq66-c After the Q the whole grid with no exception had to go to Race Direction. What a laugh we had. After the race, the Peugeot one make series has been baned for ever from Monaco streets (in spite of Jean Todt being responsible). At Le Mans we were the support race and I had to discuss with the CoC not to lose my racing licence. Still, I wonder why…

1988 JTCC final at Fuji

this looks like much more varied grid than BTCC one of same time, works cars from Nissan and Toyota giving the Sierras a run for their money

looking forward the day YT introduced auto translations

Definitely a series that didn’t get as much exposure as the Aussie series, which is understandable, but definitely plenty of great merit to the series, especially the cars. And some quality drivers too

by far Ford's best race during their 3 years of STW cup (1994 to 1996)

1995 Nurburgring
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNM5vwcq6fg

this year Ford experimented with 4x4 Mondeo but those were total failures why Roland Asch in a normal FWD Mondeo delivered the goods
