After soo much growth 2 years ago it looks like Aus GT will remain a small player in the motorsport scene.


Does pro car and nations cup ring a bell.......this is going the same way

Someone needs to ask why the entry fee at melb go 2018 in trophy class is 8k cheaper than 2016.......melb go haven’t dropped their category fee, it more like ‘we need numbers so let’s drop the entry fee’


Someone also needs to ask why the drivers lounge in 2018 is only for GT3 people......trophy and GT4 can eat a chiko roll in the pop up garages, oh but wait they also have to pay for garages as an extra.......trophy and gt4 can apply 3 weeks out and at a cost if permissible can access the lounge.

Do MPC have enough trucks to bring cars in for the combined GT/Trophy rounds?

Here's a simple question - would you prefer 6 rounds with 30 cars or 15 rounds with 15 cars?

I personally think the change is a shift in the right direction. I look forwards to seeing multi-class races with decent sized fields next year far more than what we've had this year.

What is the thought behind this decision?

They're all in the same series so why would you seperate the classes like that in regards to the hospitality.

Greg Taylor joining Roger Lago in moving from AGT to Carrera Cup in 2018 and I'm hearing that there's more to come.
Is this a concern for AGT ?

Statistically most "rock spiders" have spent some time in their lives as a church youth group leader.
Think about that.

For arguments sake lets say there's 10 outright GT3 cars (3-4 Audis, 1 BMW, 1 Ferrari, 3-4 Mercedes' & 1-2 Lamborghini's), 10 trophy class cars (5-6 Audis, 2 Lamborghinis and 1-2 Ferrari's) and up to 5 GT4 cars (1-2 Ginetta's, 1-2 BMWs, 1-2 Aston Martins) that's still a 25 (ish) car grid. That doesn't sound too bad?

^^^All hypothetical. Just trying to think positive.

On a positive note, great to see the AMAC team taking on Asia. I really started to enjoy the Asian Blancpain Series towards the end of the year and this gives us more reason to watch in 2018.

Aus GT needs some confirmed entries soon or you might see even more GT3's say screw it lets do Blancpain GT Asia instead...

I think the combined GT3/Trophy/GT4 grid can save this series, look at British GT, they run at 10-12 GT3's these days, but the bulky GT4 entry helps put together a solid field, and the GT3 fight battling through slower cars adds to the entertainment

I think there's a bit of uncertainty over the future of the series after this year's politics so that's not helping people come back to the championship with the likes of a strong regional GT championship with the support of SRO available to compete in.

Are the SLSs old enough for Trophy Series?

The SLS's are eligible, but who's got them ?
I believe 1 of them is in NZ.

Well when we’re at the mountain in a few weeks, if we ask the right questions of the right people, I’m sure answers will be forthcoming. Maverick has a way of interrogation I’m sure ;)
