That's a tall order with only 2 there. No disrespect to JJ OR Andy, but many drivers just seem to be faster than Andy now and JJ is still an up and coming driver.

I think the car has been impressive so far. HB needs more top level drivers

HB is a very small team now. The bigger teams are able to test more and share setup more quickly between rounds.

I don't know, this whole top level racing thing for TC. Just seems the teams with the deeper pockets have an advantage. They can afford the top drivers and full mechanic team. While it all pays off, I was looking forward to seeing underdogs give them a run for their money. Well, anything can happen until the end so...

I've been watching the IFMAR championship on liverc, and they just interviewed Andy Moore about the car. It sounds like they are still making changes, and that the final production version of the car is not finalized. Yesterday in the interview with Hiro, reading between the lines, they were not overly satisfied with the car yet.

Anyone have a list of where they finished at the worlds? I can't seem to find the list aside from the top ten.

In all honesty, yes, it wasn't the huge "revolution" that everyone was anticipating, but if you look past that marketing article and take a look at the detail sof the car, it looks solid and if we can see proper parts support behind it and a reasonable price tag, there is no reason why this car will not perform and find its place in the competitive TC market. Hope to see HB making its way back to the top again with this ride. Both JJ and Andy did well at the Worlds (16 and 17 I think?) considering it is a new car and the short time frame they had with it.

The greatest part of the marketing was slapping the pro5 name on it. Guess it's not gunna be an "rs4" pro 5 though
