Every year, the BTCC delivers some of the best racing you ll see anywhere and knife-edge championship battles which keep fans hooked all season. The 2012 British Touring Car Championship campaign was no exception, and the official review, once more on 2 discs, brings you all the vital passes, crashes, spins and panel-denting grudge matches from every race at every round a stunning 30 world-class tin top contests in all. It was as tension-packed and thrilling as ever - with two rounds left to go the 2012 BTCC season had crowned 7 different winners and the title was finely balanced, with Honda teammates Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal split by just 3 points at the top, and MG s hard-charging Jason Plato less than 30 points off the pace in 3rd. A stunning performance from Plato in the penultimate round ensured the final round dash for the championship would be an even closer thrill ride. Relive the full story in the best footage, including plenty of in-car action, in the official review.

Now here is the problem, I said should. I have got every season review since 2005 and for me they are gradually deteriorating in quality. The coverage and commentary comes from ITV4 (as usual) and if you have ever watched it on TV you will know that it can be quite ropey. The main faults with it are:
-The producer not listening to the commentators and keep cutting the camera feed away from the battle for position being described to often seemingly pointless shots of other cars not doing much.
-Quite a lot of action happening off camera because ITV4 don't use many cameras to cover the circuit so the coverage is thin.
-ITV4's new co-commentator Toby Moody takes a lot of getting used to as he frequently confuses the driver's (from the same team) and is not a patch on Ben Edwards in terms of depth of knowledge (his predecessor) who now does F1 for the BBC.
This year's season review is a bit ameteurish in it's editing, pretty much every time it jumps forward from one sequence to the next they hang a BTCC logo in front of you for a second or two and it looks quite naff. In the past their cutting was slicker and it just seemed to merge like it was a camera change and the audio went with it in most instances and they only very occasionally used a splash screen. They have also used the opening sequence from the ITV4 show as you might have expected but replaced the music which for me was ok with some weird music that doesn't really fit the sequence.
These niggles aside, the racing is great and I still think it is worth buying as 7 hours of action is pretty impressive, you get to see the true ebb and flow of the season. For BTCC fans it will help get you over the long winter months until the championship starts again and you can once more get your fix.
