    Thanks for the kind words guys!

    As for the Stratus I know the car very well. Even tried to get my parents to buy one as the family car when I was younger, having known it from the NATCC. Unfortunately to get technical data as well as modeling references for it would be damn near impossible. So I don't really see it happening. Plus the guys are already plenty busy with all the stuff on tap. Good shout tho, was a cool car.

    Do you have technical details for the Primera? Like tyre and rim sizing?

    Bruce McCaw was the main funder of the NATCC effort by Pac West Racing. He supposedly kept one of the actual racing Stratuss' for his private museum. But that was years ago. I once was in contact with the man in charge of the construction of the cars in England by the Reynard Factory. But that too was many years ago.
    @Strawman. Tires and rims were controlled by the BTCC I would think. Should be possible to at least find that information.

    Not that easy to find. Someone suggested it was 210-650 r19, but I'm not sure the rims were all 19. If anyone does know it would be a massive help, thanks.

    210/650R19 is the tire size of the Hoosier tires used in the historic Super Touring races these days. The original Michelins were super close to that as well. After about the 95 season all the cars ran 19 inch wheels. Mostly 19in x 8.2in.

    The car would be great for BTCC Super Touring Mod. Unfortunately 2 seconds too slow than the rest.

    I used this car for the first time last night and I’m in love with it, but graphics needs some improvements and the driver animation is missing. One thing that I didn’t understand how to shift in this car? I race in VR and no shifter pedals on the wheel and no sequential shifter in the car . I looked every where in the cockpit and the shifter is missing?!
    Last thing, I tried the car in 2 tracks and the AI keep crashing everywhere.
    I hope this car get some update because its very enjoyable car.

    1995 Super Touring cars used a sequential shifter. I haven't driven the car in a while, but the British right hand drive should be standard, the shifter 'may' be all the way on the right of the driver, next to the door. Been a long time since I've seen videos of those cars.
    ok, just did a quick photo search and found this image of the cockpit of "an unknown" BTCC car. Shifter is located at the center of the cockpit so it should be visible to the left of the driver's seat. Also double check your graphic settings. Some cars have graphic settings that hide items to improve frame rates. Make sure your car settings are full.
