I agree with you on 2004, it was highly competitive. Allowing S2000 cars to race certainly helped to bolster the field. It brought another manufacturer into the series with Seat, along with an ex-champion (Plato) and a future WTCC champion (Huff.)

You also had the likes of old hands Muller, Neal, Reid and Thompson, and future stars such as Chilton which just added to the variety and talent on the grid.
