    Default 405 & 406 Super Tourers this weekend (Syd)

    The "Touring Car Challenge" is running as part of the Premier Racing Series at Eastern Creek this weekend.

    The 405 is a 94' model, driven by Vince Evans, and the first of the pug super tourers produced for the BTCC.
    The 406 is a 97' model, driven by Bryce Peter-Budge. This is the sister car to that which he campaigned at Winton earlier this year with 310bhp vs about 250bhp at Winton where it was within 1 second, on Yokohamas, of the Luke Searle driven BMW, with better Michelins. The BMW was the quickest car at practice today, faster than the V8's, and the Pug could possibly be quicker still. This is the sister car to the one in the Zoom magazine article in the reading material, road tests section.

    Saturday includes 1 practice session and 2 qualifying sessions. Sunday sees 3 races.

    Other classes include F4000, Tranzam Sports Sedans, Superkarts and Supersports.

    Get out there, bring the family, and witness a couple of the most ballistic Peugeots you will ever see.

    That 405 has a horrible paint job.

    Any photos from the weekend? I can't believe that Gary Willmington XJS is still around.
