• WTCC 2011, Video - Chevy dominates at Donington, Tom Coronel finishes 4th for BMW and moves into 4th in driver standings

      Chevy continues their dominance in the WTCC in their FWD Chevy Cruze winning both Race 1 and Race 2 to take a large lead in the manufacturer's championship. Tom Coronel did well taking the pole for Race 2 but finished in 4th place in both races. He picked up some great points. The racing was interesting as you can see in the video but when the rain came down the FWD's had an advantage according to Tom. Regardless, Chevy seems to be running away with this series.

        BMW should do something. in older days, other manufactures were fighting to get 3rd and 4th places because 1st and 2nd places were registered for BMW.

        These are private teams but it seems Chevy has thrown some support behind the Cruze. I can't explain why it is dominating the way it is.

        Well, let's hope BMW will get its own FWD out soon to become competitive again and beat those FWD Chevys. Click here to enlarge

        Yes, it is my sense of humor Click here to enlarge Though the humor is based on the notion that FWD cars have a huge potential of which this FWD Chevy beating RWD BMW is a good example. FWD Cruze is a really good and fast car as the regulations' allowed modifications to the production versions are very limited.

        I'm just trying to balance the general forum opinions so that we, as a society, look well informed....but ok, let's say that RWD would have huge potential as well Click here to enlarge
