Audi seem VERY supportive of the new platform, unless that quote from Ullrich is already very old?

It shouldn't. It's a championship for cars optimised for sprint racing, from what I understand.

Perhaps teams and drivers want to be world champions rather than just continental champions. Perhaps the general public is uninterested in pay drivers that fill GT3 and want to see the best drivers of the world driving 500hp sports cars in thrilling sprint races. Perhaps they don't.

Please tell me youre not taking about the current GT1 grid? Also, with the WEC wouldnt it eliminate that possibility?

And By thrilling I assume you dont mean the GT1 crashfests this year or WTCC and are more taking about the quality of racing we sometimes witnessed last year like Interlagos?

I can't watch WTCC here and I prefer F1, IndyCar, Argentine TC2000 and Le Mans over GT1, so I rarely try to watch it and I've seen very few races. Most importantly, I know very few GT1 driver names, so I'm not too interested.

I was talking about what Ratel wants of GT1 / what it should be. I'd like to watch it. It's a little far now - poor grids, lots of no names (from what I know), no proper television coverage in Latin America.

Thing is, the drivers in GT1 are pretty much on a par with any other sportscar series in terms of ability and familarity to race goers.

Ok, so Audi and Peugeot have apparent aces droving for them, but the top guys in Nissan, Aston and Lambo would in the most do the job in an LMP1 car given the chance, some already have in the past.

See there's been nothing positive coming forth about this series lately then?

Well, I think it was Speedweek magazine that reported this week that 9 teams have confirmed their interest so far. Doesn't say if they all paid their deposit.

9 teams, that's not bad at this stage

I assume that most of them are this years entries, are there any interesting new ones?

Marc VDS are talking about a possible BMW Z4 GT1 project althought nothing more is known except that they are using Spa as a chance to evaluate a Z4 GT3 instead of one of their Fords. Would like to see that come to fruition, maybe Schubert might be tempted to join the fray?

Z4 GT1? Why would anyone wanna build a GT1 anymore if the new championship is going to equalize all three classes into one big mess? It doesn't matter whether you run a GT3 Lambo or GT1 (well expect the Murcielago might run out of spares)
