For some years now,  saloon car racing has been as popular with spectators as any other form of motor racing.I  think there are two main reasons for this. First, in saloon car racing the spectator can identify the cars with those used on the road—and can to a certain extent identity himself with the drivers. But the second—and main—reason for its popularity is the spectacular way in which the cars corner and perform.
