Our love for V8 Supercars has a lot to do with its ability to combine the big throaty muscle car feel of NASCAR with the corner-charging, crash-happy excitement of BTCC. But is this weekend's chaotic start at the Surfers Paradise 600 more NASCAR or more BTCC?

Whatever the influence, a stall by James Hinchcliffe at the start of the race starts a chain reaction that leaves his teammate Ricky Taylor upside down with the first 100 meters. Unlucky.
