I noticed some AGT GT3 Teams testing today (Thursday) at Sydney Motorsport Park for the upcoming AGT Round. Dammn, I should have gotten myself down there providing they would've let me in.

Im guessing that news was supposed to be on the down low? :lol:

Sad to hear of Hobson's budget problems, I hadn't heard anything otherwise so assumed they were all set for SMP.

Hope they find the funding in time as I'm looking forward to seeing the big Nissan hauling arse down the main straight.

C'mon Mav how about full car Shakedown sponsorship?

The weekend cometh. I've got the three days off, and I think I'll be taking the train out from the city each morning.

Hoping for a last minute miracle from Hobson!

Will be good to catch up again P.
Rich and I would rather be an hour early than 5 minutes late, so I'm sure you'll find us around the GT garages somewhere at sparrows on Friday.

No Hobson or Midecke. That's a big shame. No Objective McLaren either. Scud being the only R-EX.

Good to see the Maranello Ferrari on the list though.

Sad to see the numbers go down as the year goes on but I'm gonna enjoy the weekend regardless

Yes the numbers are down a little on expectations, however there are some great combinations and it is a very open race with numerous contenders.
