Just thought I'd return to this thread to tell you that the French Mitjet series is really fun and the racing is generally close, but grids are huge. As the article states, the Mitjet 2L series supports the FFSA GT series, whilst this won't support anything, which I see as the biggest problem. What package is this series going to have?

Some silouette racecars are ugly, but this is ridiculous!

Just wanted to give a few danish word to this debate .

The "Danish Supertourisme Turbo" class was created as a reaction to DTC and the management by Peter Elgaard (Father of Casper Elgaard).
DTC, is getting increasingly expensive (Jan Magnussens team, is reported to have an infinite budget), many of the smaller teams, and upcoming drivers can't afford this.
Together with a "special" kind of management, where neither DASU (Danish Automotive Sport Union) or many of the drivers feel properly treated, often because of special treatment demanded towards DTC and their star drivers.

This has sparked the feel for a competing "top series" in Denmark, which the Midjet powered Supertourisme is born out of.
Originally it was supposed to be Solution F, but the need to keep prices down, apparently made them select Midjet.

Peter Elgaard has posted a letter, slamming the creation of a new series. Blaming the creators of the series, of killing danish motorsport, as there is few sponsors to support these "large series".

However.
Sebastien Loeb, will take drive in 1 or 2 of next years DST races (he's strongly connected to Midjet).
Kurt Thiim has confirmed that he will take part in a full season.

12 Cars have been ordered to race next year, and will race in 7 weekends.
On all 3 permanent danish tracks (looking forward to see them at Ring Djursland where I'm marshalling).
1-2 City tracks (Classic Race Aarhus certainly one of them)
and 1 race in Sweden.

Dennis Lind. He'd be doing a solid job in F3 right now if he had the cash imo. Sad case, but it's good to see he's been doing well in his homeland.

The Italians are launching their own Mitjet Championship at Vallelunga next weekend (supporting the 6hr GT race). This one-off weekend a taster for a full season in 2015.

Totally agree.
Looks like modern version of legends racing, plus tohe 2l are more doped up.
They got something similar in australia.
More suitable for manga tv series than real world racing

now seriously - or hobby/amateur racing, okay. but for premier series?

Remember this is Denmark, our premier series is mainly hobby/amateur racing. There is not a lot of sponsoring available in Denmark.

But are these Mitijets that much cheaper than those old Camaro silhouettes? At least those were full-scale...

Yes, but not much.
The new series is also a wish to brake away from Peter Elgaard (father of Casper Elgaard) rule of DTC.
Peter Elgaard is a highly debated character, and the way DTC is run doesn't follow suit with many of the danish drivers.

Ah, that explains it quite a bit. I've heard about the controverses around Elgaard before, shame it sometimes goes like that.
