I wonder if BMW will do their private testing again this year?

Word is Audi is certainly doing it this year. Maybe they'll all do a day hire and split costs...

I'm hearing that there are around 15 GT3 cars entered to this point.
What percentage are current running AGT main game cars I'm not sure.

Almost 25 GT3/GT4 entries received which is encouraging for the 12 hour.
CB is pretty much fully booked entry wise.

So we have the SRM GT3 & GT4 cars with Xavier West & Dean Grant named as 2 of the GT4 drivers.
Manolios, Koundouris, Walls, Hobson, Gartner & Meidecke with their GT3 cars and Meidecke with the GT4 also.
A few older spec Gallardo's, 458's and Audi's entered.
Going to be interesting to see who gets behind the wheel of the 12 hour entries.

A couple of rather interesting entries hidden amongst all the regularity cars, one without driver/s at this stage - some evaluation testing going on I guess.
The Monday and Tuesday will see V8 Race Experience utilising the track under the permit so am not sure if any private testing days will be available.
Hopefully the event will go off like last year but guess that with so many runners I will be busy.

Too old for women so it's cars and truffles from now on.

Not 100% sure, but as of July the only Macca GT4 here was a customer of Peter Fitzgerald's.
Very exciting to see the Aston & Macca GT4's on track.

Don't think it will be the one badly damaged first lap out last year.
The driver had only recently purchased the car and was in serious strife with the missus-even more so when he ended up in hospital with bruising etc (and that was before he rang home !!)

As of yesterday the Supersprint (Thursday/Friday) had a full complement of 160 cars with 5 reserves.
Regularity was a bit fluid with some withdrawals and new entries so should be about chockers by the start of the event.

If last year was any indication it should be a superb event. It really does hark back to the days of motor SPORT with people helping each other out and generally doing what we ask of them.
Unfortunately for me with Challenge and the associated v8 experience days then Newcastle the next day for prep etc I will be away for just on 2 weeks with just a detour home to drop off laundry and pick up some clean clothes - hope the locks aren't changed by the time I get home at the end of it all !!

Looking forward to it D and I'll be there for the Thursday and Friday at least.
