Re: Autosport's Top 20 Touring car drivers

yep i know of 50 drivers from all walks of motorsport who have done more then half them guys listed,so its utterly rubbish to me that list,but meh russell n marcos are in there,but yeah..

cars are a lethal weapon,your not invinsible when you get into one,and no matter how much skill you think you have,you are never in control you are always on the edge of death it may not happen today but if you keep driving like you do,you too will end up dead!

I don't know how you could even begin to compare them, they drive different cars on different circuts with different race formats.

I've seen some DTM races and Mattias Ekstrom seems pretty bloody impressive, not to put down Marcos at all but there are plenty of brilliant drivers in Europe is all i'm saying.
