It is an interesting topic if there is VASC involvement in Oz GT. It would be fair to say that the growth of GT Racing in Australia has been helped by Supercars. Helped as in driving away the privateers and gentlemen drivers from their series and boosting up GT racing.

Yeah, just had a look at it myself - They've jammed everything into Friday and Saturday and have absolutely nothing on Sunday except the Supercars race????
Its probably still a provisional schedule, but the V8SC race starts at 13:15, why have nothing before that and cram everything into Saturday?
I don't understand.

I think this is a misprint.There will be races for Super 2,Carrera Cup and TCM on Sunday as well as a Supercar warm up.Doesnt affect GT.

I'm trying to figure out if this is the same car we've seen before or a different car which would mean there is more then one McLaren GT4 in the country.

Can't be 100% sure, but I would say it might be the same one?
Close up on the pic I took at the PI 500 in May shows YNA Autosport and Evolve Technik, with Fitzgerald on the A Pillar, however no Evolve over the rear wheel arch. ET is Peter Fitzgerald's tuning company ...

Unless of course you are referring to a different one we saw before?

HA was initially supposed to run at Clipsal and in their words they withdrew due to the calender change which had an effect on their sponsors to the point where they said that they were abandoning their AGT plans and looking at the Asian Series still with Bowe and Price, however i know that this was news to at least one of those drivers who hadn't been contacted in quite a while.
They obviously haven't made it to Asia either and their social media sites have died.
From very early on this whole thing had a big ? on it and there were drama's behind the scenes including HA not even having the Edwards Bentley to use at one point but continued to advertise their plans involving the use of it.
Some may suggest that the late calender change was a handy excuse for pulling the pin on something that was doomed from the start which is a shame.
