Could be anyone Peckstar. For example - one or multiple competitors. Or SRO potentially as they are investing in the Asia Pacific region currently.

Its an option. 1 of 3 real options currently facing the category.

1) Cams run it.
2) V8SC make a competitive bid and gain the management lease rights
3) Another category manager / promoter is found

so then we need to add the next option. no one. cars just run at local events and maybe on the poorly attended CAMS shannons series. With CAMS also having a significantly reduced category managment fee,

I don't see that as a likely outcome Peckstar. As has been discussed - as 2 of only 4 Australian Championships, CAMS would run the championship.

So your prediction is extremely unrealistic.

Got to run them somewhere though, are they going to beg supercars for help?

and just because they have 2 of the 4 championships doesnt force competitors to turn up (is that what they were attempting to do a few months ago)

and as GTR said here we are November, whats there plan?

Considering the v8sc proposal was only rejected 10 days ago - you would imagine the plan is currently evolving.

In terms of where they could run - the shannons nationals would be the obvious choice. I'm unsure of the contracts in place with the AGP and SA Gov but considering the history of Australian GT racing at both events there may be an existing agreement in place.

No need to force competitor to show up - just give them a platform to race

CAMS owns and runs the Shannons Nationals, why wouldn't they race there? (especially if CAMS endsed up running GTs itself)

It's been run and done many many many times in front of no crowd before the GTs ran in support of Supercars outside of the GP and Clipsal. It must've worked as the championship still exists and even with the disappointing entry numbers this year there still a number of brand new half a million dollar race cars heading down under.

Question (that you may or may not be able to answer):

Next year's Hampton Downs event is going to be a 12 hour race and will be a leg of the Asia Pacific GT series. Does that mean it won't have any ties to the Aus series and will be a completely different field, or are we likely to get a mixed bag?

You must forgive my ignorance of the workings of the Aus GT series as we get basically zero coverage of it over here in NZ. It's still my favourite category though.
