Very interesting move by the South Australian government. I wonder what was their criteria for the decision.

Maybe AGT couldn't guarantee enough Audi R8's on their grid?

Audi Customer Racing Australia shows off new factory

Lot of audis to top up that grid

No BOP, no handicapped pit stops (I believe thats correct)

Why would that series need BoP or handicapped pit stops?

Do you think that was part of the criteria that the South Australian Government used? Pit stop handicaps?

Yes, It was in the feedback, too confusing, reduced entertainment, crowd didnt like it.

However, Im sure the interest here is in bringing in an Asian audience who watch the current Audi R8 Cup, matching it up against the best of Aust, with a simplier form of racing

It's funny how certain posters have gone from loving GT's when the Supercars involvement was first mooted, to now sticking the boot into the category every chance they get now the Supercars bid has been rejected....

Didn't the Adelaide organisers originally announce an Asian Ferrari series as a support race for the Clipsal 500 a year or two back (the same year that the Dunlop Series was originally dropped from the support card before later being reinstated).... the Asian Ferrari series never showed....

The same posters who loved GTs before, had the same opinions/question in this forum about certain things that are weak in the series, before, during and after the potential Supercars involvement. Because fields are diminishing and that's a concern

the same year as Stadium Super Truck was announced, which did come and has provided great entertainment. Will Audi come, no one knows at this stage only that it appears to have been announced. But it should be a good category, at least as a 1 off (or maybe 2 with Aust F1 GP event)

Fleet of Mercedes GT4s headed to Australia

Gt4 as previously mentioned (in the 2017 thread) will be able to race next year

This is a weird comment though, wonder what he means

Quote:
We might do that Intercontinental series next year and then just run the GT4s here, but we’ll wait and see what happens, what categories and what tracks they’re offering (on the Australian GT calendar), and what we’re doing.”
imagine not running you Gt3 car in the local series so you run in the bigger Intercontinental series, unheard of

Is there a source or further detail for this feedback? For example detailed consumer data from interviews or surveys or just a random punters feedback on an Internet forum?

by definition the survey is of random punters and in this case it completed through an internet based survey or people who engaged with the 2017 clipsal. It was quite intense and asked people what the thought of each of the support categories and a number of other event related things both general and focused.

However why do you care if aust Gt start at Adelaide or Melbourne or some other track. the Audi R8 cup will be great to watch, close racing, allowing the best of Australia to compete against professional (including an ex F1 driver) and amateur drivers from overseas while attracting an Asian audience to the event. surely thats all that should matter.

And why didnt the Australian Audi teams travel to NZ on the weekend, the cars were ready
