Hopefully they get the budget for all 3 cars and some decent steerers :)

They may just be a crucial addition to the grid if the rumours of small grids for the nz rounds are to be believed.

Onwards and upwards next year!

Thats not too far off what I've heard also unfortunately. It sucks but hey if people don't want to do the New Zealand rounds for whatever reason then that's going to be the end result As much as l love the two New Zealand rounds especially Highlands which is a stunning track that in all reality looks like a fantasy track out of Gran Turismo, I can understand some competitors not wanting to make the trip especially if it coincides with Challenge Bathurst which is becoming more and more important for those AGT teams that do B12 too. Not all teams have the resources that a team like MPC has and can do both unfortunately but that's the way it is.

Yep Jaxon was discussing here at Ruapuna this weekend, i also interviewed Halliday and IMS on their line ups too. Will post links when edited.

I am struggling to see how anyone came up with (IMO) the large number of 15 coming over :( but we shall see. At least we've a decent showing on the Kiwi front lining up!

Despite a low car count expected, it'll be awesome to have at least one Ferrari and a couple of Huracans in the mix.

I believe Scudd is entering the NZ rounds with his R-EX unless plans have changed recently

Forget about the Trass car. Two Ferraris hooray!

So according to this article the two Quinn McLaren lineups will be decided by votes on facebook. Something a bit new and a good way to involve the fans.

I don't think I've ever heard of anything like that before, very interesting idea from Quinn.

Im of the belief that the Stutterd BMW isnt even in NZ anymore and is headed to the US for PWC or IMSA, whether that involves Stutterd or not I got no idea.
