IE quantity , not quality
The field is dictated by the 'gentleman" driver/owner who wants to participate, basically it comes down bang for buck and therein is the problem

The feedback from 2017 was that there wasnt the depth of field (accident, budget etc) for enough teams to run Sprint, Endurance and Trophy.

Some played in Sprint only, some in Endurance and some in Trophy.

2018 addresses this and consolidates the 3 streams into 1 Australian GT Championship.

Quality in terms of competitors and reduction in quantity of the number of events .

Where can we find this feedback DRT? I assume its somewhere freely available.

You can try and word things however you want, but this is a major backward step for Aust GT. necessary however, but still a major backward step.

Personally I think it's a good move. 14 was probably way too many to get good size fields consistently.

Doing less events and being either the headline act or one of the headline acts at most of them sounds like a sensible approach to me. 2017 made it look like 14 was over-reach and it's a smart move to take heed of that.

Correct Tourer.

AGP to kick off the calendar provides great visibility at Australia's largest motorsport event. SMP with V8SC as support and then headlining at The Bends, PI and Sandown gives good balance across the season.

Less is more in 2018

Nothing wrong with different classes and varying car speeds, it makes it more interesting for me, so i'm glad it's adopted in AGT

I'm not a fan of mixing sprint races with endurance races in any series though, keep them separate in my opinion.

Tony Quinn addressed all those issues a number of times this year in interviews on the Inside Supercars podcast

You would imagine Tony Quinn will have a car or 2. MPC, Hackett, YNA, SRM, Talbot/Walkinshaw, Walls, Twigg, Manolias, Zagame, Bates etc

Miedecke Motorsports were advertising for a mechanic for the GT3 car last week which is a good sign.

Miedecke are selling the AM aren't they? Does Walky still have the Porker?

Scudd and MacPherson gone. Twigg is in CC so would have to do double duty if he is in GT. As will Storey, Evans, Miles. And you are scraping the barrell using Manolias as an example of a shining light
