Reckon it could be a new car?

In 2017 - it was a HTP Merc rather than Scotts

He will need to go where Mercedes tell him however it wouldnt be a total surprise to see him turn up in one of the Strakka entries.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
SVG not racing in a merc this weekend. So no reason to expect he will be back in one in the 12 hour based on where he raced last 12 hour

Hes not an AMG factory pilot like Engel so he can race wherever he likes. When he raced with McLaren in Blancpain that was a different story as he was a factory driver then.

Not sure how stable this Championship is given one of those rounds slated for next year has had this years edition cancelled

Him Bell and Ledogar were a very strong trio for the BES title which they ultimately won. Would be great to see them together again.

Sepang was part of the 2017 cup

The 2018 cup is at Bathurst , Spa, Suzuka and California.

The NZ outing is a privateer car, not a works one.

Customer supported McLaren.

SVGs deal with Merc was for the IMSA season which has concluded hence the opportunity to race the McLaren.

Will be interesting to see if 2018 brings him to Europe or the USA for his GT3 racing

Aware of that, but maybe that's just a warm up to the idea of Bathurst with McLaren next year

Just a thought

I was talking about the Asia Pacific 36 Endurance Cup, which for 2018 was supposed to incorporate the Bathurst 12hrs, Sepang 12hrs and Hampton Downs 12hr, and which you have been telling us the last few weeks that Australian teams would ditch AGT to compete in this....even though it is now looking a tad shaky

The Intercontinental GT Challenge which Bathurst has been and is a part of doesn't require specific teams to attend all the rounds.

Great to have some official confirmation of M Sport returning as they're quite popular with 12hr fans. I doubt anyone will complain about them using the current car as it has its own aural charms
