Shaping up to be a neat "little" race - Great to see Acura throw down the gauntlet, too.

Kaffer Winkelhock and VDL would be a stellar lineup for Audi if that came about.

Sadly Patron ESM's hopes of getting GT3 to the 8hr this year has fallen off the wagon.

Yeah, that's a shame. Would have been cool to see them compete.

Some very strong lineups forming for the race. Im guessing it will be streamed via GTWorld?

At least some of it will be, but the press release was a bit unclear: http://www.intercontinentalgtchallenge.com/news/1055/cbs-sports-network-to-televise-the-mazda-raceway-california-8-hours?filter_on_igtc_site=1&filter_team_news=0
Hopefully they'll stream the whole thing. With two Team RJN Nissans now on the entry list , it'll probably be on Nismo's YouTube page as well.

While its off to a reasonable start - 22 cars is fairly decent for a first run - its a shame some regular PWC runners haven't given it a go.

Of course, the proximity to the VIR Petit Le Mans weekend has likely cost them a few competitors.

But the Acura/Honda v Nissan battle will be fun to watch, as well as K-PAX, Land, WRT and Wright cars getting right into it.

And the 8 GT4 cars is also pretty decent.

A few bugs to iron out for next year - but all we can hope for is a strong race with a close finish and the thing should go off.

Whilst the entrylist is a bit smaller then expected, there is more then a few high quality lineups in the grid so we should see some good racing.

I was really hoping Flying Lizard would bring one of the GT4 Caymans and Bentley would bring out M-Sport...but it's a pretty decent entry anyway. The caliber of drivers and teams just in these few cars is off the charts.

Per Sportscar365, the full race will be available to international audiences via SRO's website, so you guys should be fine.

Those of us in the US who don't have cable...we're not so lucky. The 5 hrs on Motor Trend are all we get. :(

That's great news for us outside of North America, not so good for you mate.

Reading earlier article on S365 it appeared the only streaming anywhere was through MotorTrend on Demand which really sucked

Be a nice way for the NSX to go out if the rumors are true and Realtime switch to the Honda Civic TCR next year

John Dagys mentioned on his podcast this week that both the Magnus and Land entries are factory chassis, the Land car 'Peggy Sue' which won PLM will instead go for a freshen up before next year
