SUPER TOURING

The greatest touring cars ever built are the Super touring cars from 1994-2001. In the BTCC, STW, ETCC and STCC it was the best racing ever seen. You will understand what I mean by viewing this video http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YRz1zQTDNYk&feature=related 

Production 4 door bodyshell with front splitter and rear wing, 2 litre engine 320 hp mouted low and as far back as possible for better weight distribution, sequential gearbox, very advanced suspension, driver position low and back for better weight distribution. More info at http://www.supertouringregister.com/ and http://www.supertouring.co.uk/   and pictures at http://www.stillphotography.co.uk/gallery/v/Motorsport-Photography/saloon/.
