Great news and fair to say that Mat will have some pressure on him.

Good to see as I thought that might be it for him with them only announcing one car for Blancpain.

Quote from the article "I can’t thank Nissan Australia and RJN Motorsport enough for making this all possible." Given that we have not seen further 2017 plans for either of the Aussie owned GT-Rs we saw at Bathurst, that RJN had announced plans for 1 car only, and Matt's reference to Nissan Australia, I can't help wondering if one of those Aussie GT-Rs is bound for Europe ...

Cos he's turning Japanese, I think he's turning Japanese, I really think so ... Welcome to Nissan, Mr Moore :)

He'll be racing with Boutsen Ginion. He didn't sound all that enthusiastic about the McLaren Junior program at the end of last year and the results sucked as well. I wonder if we'll have something similar back this year.

Well i am pretty sure that Strakka was going to be running 4 cars? Including a junior car. So, who knows! lol

Saw before Mies testing at Misano in the Audi with the #1 plastered on the windscreen. Paul Ricard next week for the official test

I'm sure that if there are young drivers with a big enough paycheck McLaren will want to continue the Junior program ;)

That's the spirit!

That livery is like something out of GT300

Going by what I saw on Facebook Enzo Ide is sharing with Chris Mies this year in quite probably a WRT Audi.

Yeah i think there will be a bit of "business as usual" for WRT. I think i saw they are running 4 cars in the sprint and 5 in the enduros.

It will be interesting to see who they will get to fills Vanthoors shoes now that he has gone, i had anticipated it could be a position for Rast to fill but after he was announced in the DTM, that was quickly squashed. WRT always seem to roll out a powerhouse driver line up so i'm not worried about their competitiveness.

I'm not sad about Mies and Ide, they worked very well last year and Ide came on so strong in the season it's hard to imagine that he isn't a lean mean driving sometimes his driving certainly shadows that.

I'm super pumped for the season to start, there are so many 'what-ifs' but all that will go out the window when the green flag drops for the first time!
