Could be.

1. i don't watch TV in general.
2. Eurosport shows so many times NOT what they should do according their programming that i lost interest in watching it anyway.

Bit of drama in the chicane, Boardman got sideways and was hit by Caine causing Tom's wheel to fall off and Caine's bonnet to come up (with him having to pull off the track and get a marshal to put it down).

Woops I somehow completely missed that there was another BTCC race before the Clio race that I'm about to watch. Oh well.

"That car had horrific damage", says the commentator. The only visual damage was that the front left wheel had been knocked slightly sideways... SC.

Both drivers are OK, although one of them looks very winded.

Forum Favourite Alex Zanardi to run in DTM!

Only a one off at this stage, but it preparation for an attack on next years Daytona 24 hour.

Zanardi will join BMW DTM drivers at Hungaroring this weekend to familiarise himself with the details of procedures, structures and processes in the DTM.

A roll-out and test drives are additional steps planned for the coming weeks.
Alex Zanardi will make a special guest appearance in the DTM for BMW Motorsport at Misano.

The German touring car championship has given the green light for Zanardi to make a one-off start in the series where he will drive a specially adapted BMW M4 DTM race car.

The 51-year-old ex-Formula 1, CART and WTCC driver, who lost both his legs in a horrific CART crash in 2001, is preparing to make his racing return for the first time in two years at the Misano round from August 25-26.

His last outing came in a BMW M6 GT3 in the Italian GT Championshipin 2016, following a run at the 2015 Spa 24 Hours and a full Blancpain GT sprint campaign the previous year.

Zanardi, a BMW factory driver, has previously driven adapted DTM machinery during a test in 2012, but is yet to make a start in the series.

The Italian is planning to use the race as preparation for an assault on the Daytona 24 Hours next year.
