    Will be there again next weekend plenty going on. Put some money into Hobson Motorsport GTR #66 for this year a small privateer team with no factory backing doing it old school working real jobs and racing when they can.
    Friday night at Panarottis Bar and Grill with Brett and Laura Hobson, Craillsy the race caller, Matt the Aust GT media rep etc.. about 50 of us all up should be a good night before things step up on saturday. My Lotus will be on display behind the main stand Saturday and Sunday.
    Will be doing some demo laps in a new dark blue Exige around midday on saturday doing my bit for Lotus (time allowing) with a few other supercars should be a bit of fun.

    If you look at the current GT3s, the people and manufacturers that are involved and the races they can enter with these cars. The global scale of this thing and the technical freedom. GT3 is the possibly best thing that has happened to motorsports in my life time. I'll enjoy every minute at the race track this year, as ever and it seems every year I become more involved in the sport, the speed, sound and these awesome cars become addictive.

    Sorry Maurie Fezzas are going to be bit thin on the ground this year, a few reasons for that mainly the cost by far the most expensive car on the grid at @$1m ready to go. Clearwater are not entering their car apparently not happy with the BOP and dont want to risk damaging the new 488 in a long race they cannot win based on current BOP rules.

    What a rookie mistake by Lowndes! Very lucky not to go a lap down.

    It would be killer if we could get a Ford GT in this race next year.

    Well, all I see that is was a Maranello 488 win ! they may have been scarce Steve but all you need is one eh
    Watched some footage - had some nice speed down Conrod.
    Vilander drove it superb to put the car in good position.

    Love those Bentleys - what a beast !

    Why was that? I must admit not to watching the whole race. The variety of cars was for me something different. Not the same vibe of the V8's but certainly different and enough to sit back, relax, and enjoy.
