    Could have been. Wittman was definitely very quick. I only heard some of the results over the flaggies radio loop, I shared headphones with the other guy at our flag point so probably missed some times when I didn't have the headphones on.

    The Merc AMG GT3 sounded really unique but seemed off the pace ??? Maybe just warming up / taking it a little easy.

    And yeah, it was amazing standing there watching these awesome cars.

    It was that good watching some of these cars going round at Challenge Bathurst the other weekend that I've volunteered as flaggie for the 12 hour.

    Really looking forward to it. Camping in the officials paddock campground.

    Is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    No Matt Simmons the GT academy winner which is a bit of a surprise as is Todd Kelly. I can understand why they'd pick Mardenbrough over Simmons as he is damn good.

    Well the Daytona won't be back as its been replaced by a Viper! Sad to not see the Daytona again because I've a lot of happy memories of it but the Viper makes me happy in my pants so it's all good. All the best to the team.

    Id be keen to catch up with any pfers for a beer sometime over the weekend. Not sure when I'll be free though

    Cliffnotes on entrylist.

    The grid is fast taking shape especially up the pointy end with most of the TBAs in the slower classes.

    No Miedecke Aston GT4 or Tekno 570 GT4 which is a shame as I particularly wanted to see the new McLaren.

    McLaren have announced their lineup finally

    nr1 Alvaro Parente, Come Ledogar and Rob Bell
    nr59 Will Davison, Johnny Kane and Ben Barnicoat who is a McLarenGT Academy driver

    Hobson will have both their privateer Nissans on the grid with Chris Pither headling their lead car with Daniel Bilski and Adrian Flack. Their second car will have team owner Brett Hobson with Erik Davis of who they brought the cars from and Fred Poordad

    Walkenhorst havent announced anything about their M6 GT3 but rumored to be today-Jorg Muller will headline that car even though it hasnt been announced yet.

    And theres a new rooftop bar on top of the pits open to all courtesy of Heineken.

    If that was the case it'd probably get shut down haha

    Walkenhorst BMW lineup

    Jorg Muller
    Nico Menzel Asia Carrera Cup champion
    Ricky Collard son of BTCC racer Rob Collard

    Not names known to Aussies but a good trio nonetheless. Jorgs the old hand with speed and an ability to learn the track very quickly, just see how quickly Wittman learned the track. Menzel and Collard are the young and upcoming talent. Collard a BMW junior I believe.

    Pleasantly surprised it wasn't Jorg and two gentlemen drivers.

    I'm running Combined Sedans again in the support categories. We're camping again, should have the Corvette Flag flying in the campsite. Won't be winning any classes this year as they've stuck me up in the open class against all the real sports sedans - oh well! Taking a totally untested and drastically changed car into Qualy on Friday morning at sparrows fart - guess that will wake me up! Hoping to crack 290 on conrod though, in basically a caged road car. Giddy up!
    A slow day at the track is better than any day in the office.
