    I had forgotten about the Bathurst 6 hours. It's about the only racing going this weekend.

    Totally forgot about the 6hr as well. Was just reminded that of it after seeing this tweet. Think it's going to be pretty hard to beat this livery.

    I read a Mustang GT joined the 2019 Production Car series, but there isn't one in the 6h entry list. Would be interesting to see if it could keep up with the M3/M4s.

    Edit: Found it. Jeez, February?

    Jamie's competing full-time in the upcoming W Series, but she'll also make appearances in the VLN Endurance Championship, as well as fulfilling other duties for Aston Martin.

    They're also entering two Vantage GT4s into this year's Nürburgring 24hrs. Chadwick, Ross Gunn, Alex Brundle and Peter Cate will drive in the SP10 class, whilst the sister car is in the SP8T class with Darren Turner, Chris Harris, Chris Goodwin and Christian Gebhardt.

    Bit of drama for the Sherrin M4 during towards the end of the second practice session. The gearbox decided it didn't want to work anymore. Very lucky that it happened today and during the race or qualifying.

    What other makes can match the BMWs? Jordan Cox wasn't too happy.

    It looks like it's the BMW's then everyone else. The M4's are basically GT4 cars aren't they? But there's been a lot of attrition in the first hour.

    With the amount of money Sherrin put in the M4, pretty much is one without the aero and slicks.

    Edit: Aw, the ITR...

    So unless they strike trouble. How much is the Lynton/Leahey BMW going to win by? :lol: :crazy: Disappointing that it's pretty much a one horse race.

    The Falcon isn't exactly staying off the racing line while dumping oil from the engine.

    Got this race going on the laptop hooked up to the tv & watching Super Formula on Youtube on the desktop PC. That's about as close as I get to multi-tasking.

    The Hyundai's look like they just put roll cages into road cars. They have factory steering wheels, instrument cluster, interior panels etc. :)

    I love the idea of this race but every year it seems to be the same story. 1-2 cars, usually BMW, leaving everyone else in their dust.

    That may have been the most awkward interview I have ever seen...

    It was the same story when the Evos raced. I think they need to limit the M3/4 to exhaust and durable hoses, belts, etc. and suspension only. 300hp Evos and STIs are no match. The A45 is fast, but it's no handling machine. I don't know if even an RC F or Q60 could keep up.
