They are production type cars,

and GT cars were part of GTP back in the day,

and the GTP showroom showdown was good viewing as a kid,

So I vote yes.

An Aus GT 2 hour enduro on the Saturday afternoon would be good viewing.

I used to love watching the showroom showdown. I would be happy with one longer race for them. The only problem is the majority of short races this weekend are crash fests and end up spending most of the race under safety car. But a saturday lunchtime slot would be good.

Honestly any racing at the mountain is great and i have enjoyed gt sprint racing there in the past but it would come with significant chance of major damage. The plus is an enormous crowd and tv audience and the likely hood of 2 or 3 races shown live. Its a big carrot to dangle in front of sponsors.

Supercars will be in 2 minds, do we keep the focus on the v8s solely for this weekend, or do they add even more value to the weekend and build up interest and potential spectator numbers for the 12hr.

At the very least i think its a real chance.

Does anyone know if a 2018 calendar has been finalised yet? I would suspect a fair number of events may align to Supercars but wouldn't expect all.

I know the B12H is a standalone event at the moment, but would venture a guess most AGT teams participate? I know it's costly for some teams, but wouldn't that make sense to make it a season opener?

The Bend looks like it might be a good venue on the long circuit- suspect not the same weekend as Supercars since you'd need more marshals to crew more corners (I can't see Supercars running an entire 7.7k circuit)

Hoping to get a few more GT events in next year.

I wouldn't think the calender would be finalised until end of year especially with Supercars taking over management recently so they'll take a bit of time to get up to speed with the championship and what is required of next year.

Hoping for one calender and not another one down the track like this year.

We'll all have to wait a little longer for the 2018 calender.

Does the optimistic taking over include all Aus GT categories?
