I’ll be honest, I never followed any kind of motorsports, not even Formula 1. However I must say, as an Autolifer, I’ve always enjoyed being around cars regardless and going to car events, be it at static meets, cruises, track days or drift days. A few weeks ago a friend invited me to go to Knockhill racing circuit to watch the BTCC, and I said why not? I had the chance to occasionally watch some BTCC races on TV and frankly I didn’t fall in love with it. Although it’s fast cars, so I just went and I don’t regret it at all. It’s probably like when people compare films to books: the book is always more detailed. So obviously was watching the BTCC in real life. It was fantastic. The sound of those 2 litre turbo charged 300hp engines was remarkable: not too raspy but still very loud, especially if you were standing on the side of the exhaust, as the BTCC cars seem to all have side exhausts.
