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.
Wont have any ties to the Aust Series, although Aust series cars may enter

Highlands to host Aus GT round for final time

If I were the next promoter of the category in Australia, I'd definitely skip having sprint and endurance series. Mix it up and have a bit of both or more of the two driver races than not, but I'm not sure the series is strong enough to support two separate series.

If the much talked about Sepang 12 hour/Bathurst 12 hour/Hampton Downs 12 hour series gets off the ground, what might be left of AusGT?

evolution of this year's Sprint series? (hopefully without the politics/crash damage/TV coverage issues etc and therefore a decent grid)

They raced in front of no crowd at the Creek in August at 7am in the morning at a Supercars event. What is the difference? (other than the crews won't have to get up as early at a Shannons event)

Or were you not up in time to watch it?

Do you seriously post this stuff with a straight face? Or just trying to wind up other posters?

That series has absolutely nothing to do with AGT or any other national championship, it is an SRO initiative.

There will be an Australian GT Champion crowned in 2018. Someone will run it, it will race on an event card, and will attract more cars than a Formula 4 grid, which is a national championship too after all.

Not sure what your point is here GTR?

As an avid support of Australian GT and a moderator who supports positive & informative discussion - I am sure you would be aware that the Australian GT Championship has existed and run annually whilst the Sepang & Bathurst 12 Hours have also been in existence.

So with that context - what is your question again?

would it not make sense that with the new championship some drivers/teams/cars might choose to take part in the bigger championship, rather than in Aust GT

Sepang & Bathurst have been in the same Championship for two years already, did that rob AGT of any competitors?

As you have been watching - which competitors chose to race at Sepang & Bathurst at the expense of the Australian GT Championship Peckstar?

I have to ask seriously if you have been watching!

What competitors have left AGT to compete in the Intercontinental GT Challenge that Sepang & Bathurst have been a part of in 2016 and 2017???

I was talking about the Aust gp fields, which we all agree are down significantly. however quite a few ran at just 3 tracks earlier in the year. (Bathurst , clipsal , Aust F1 GP) and havent eben seen since

But now we may have a 3 race championship on our doorstep. which is different from the current year.
