    I'll be back camping at McPhillamy. Just waiting for campsites to be released.

    Next year should be a mega field. Cannot wait.

    Nah no shuttles. If you want to get to the inside of skyline you have to get there before the start of the session and then get permission to cross. Just drive around the track on the public road.
    Turn two can be accessed by hiking or driving up one of the roads on the inside.

    The shuttles access the outer side of the track but as R32 said no shuttles for the inside of the track if that's what your asking.

    Good to hear that all PRO lineups will be allowed from next year. We might see a few more overseas teams with that new rule.

    Maranello have just announced the first official entry with a 488. Toni Vilander will return to drive for them.

    Yeah I'd be expecting JW to get up to speed quite quickly especially with Vilander coaching him. With Toni's guidance even Fisi stopped crashing (well almost) and does pretty well these days in GT racing.

    Miedecke Stone Motorsport have just announced two Aston Vantage GT3 for class A and one Aston Vantage GT4 for Class B

    Should be a cracker of an entry list to be released later this year.

    Well this is an entry out of left field. Steve Richards Motorsport entered BMW M6 GT3 for Mark Skaife, Russell Ingall and Tony Longhurst.

    Could be interesting.

    All three have a lot to offer, but whether they can work together cohesively is another thing.

    yes, this year looks like being even more difficult for the slower cars (slow being around 2:10 - 2:14!)

    I hope they do really well. But sadly I suspect they will DNF - crash..
    Logical debate beats name calling any day. My Badges Of Honour so far in PF: Racist, Bigot, Islamaphobe, Numpty, Moron, Far Right Wing Nationalist, Far Fight Wing Fascist, "raving fucking lunatic", "dumb" & climate "denier". AND they are just SOME of the pathetic tags that I've been labelled by SOME here. HINT: Those labels are signs that the accusers have lost to logical debate.

    Maybe it's time for them to check some facts. Here's a good starting point: http://www.mostdamagingwikileaks.com

    Rumor has it the last driver is Maro Engel. Interesting to see that the car won't be run by Erebus who are running his car in Aus GT this year...

    Not really surprising given SVGs history with Erebus. Might have been a condition on him agreeing to drive the car.

    Going to be the best one yet given all the new models and calibre of drivers signing up to date.

    Trofeo are running Canto, Ryan Millier and Ivan Capelli in their Huracan. Lamborghini offered them a factory driver but Jim Manolios decided to drive instead. Hopefully they can keep him out of the car for as much as possible because he is slow as hell.

    Was a couple of these running around Mt Panorama on Thursday and Friday. Mostert managed 2:04, I think Skaife managed 2:06 ?? from memory. Difference in times between Skaife, Ingall and Longhurst in the same car was interesting - nearly 10 seconds (again, just from memory, could be wrong).

    I was lucky enough to be on the flag point at the kink going into the chase to see them scream past from only a few metres away.

    Thanks for the times. Sounds like you had the best seat in the house. Apparently Frosty and Wittman were in the 2:03s and got up to speed quite quickly
