    "Oooh look, a modern, relevant and relatively cheap series, free from politics and money grabbing"

    Is that how you attract growth in motorsports?

    Yes. It has notably expanded hasn't it? The thing that gets me is that it's getting nowhere near the viewing figures or attendance that F1 is getting so the involvement cannot be based on what money companies think they can make out of it or 'reaching a market'. It's purely so cheap to compete that there is very little risk for a manufacturer to start a programme so why not? It really does make you see how F1 screwed itself by not accepting a budget cap.

    It needs someone sensible to push it in the market place and not destroy it. At the moment its ripe for a dear old Bernie character to step in and rip it to shreds.

    It needs mainstream TV and proper coverage. I can't believe how hard you have to look to find it on TV and why Channel 5 have pushed it away.
