Mr Mostert put a privately-entered M6 in P2 on the grid for the Bathurst 12hr this year, beating the two works cars.

That is a little bit of a suprise:
Vanthoor joins O'Young in an two car Porsche entry from Craft-Bamboo.

Good to see Porsche gives customers a chance. Although O'Young is a good driver, I don't expect him to see battle for the top positions agains guys like Vanthoor, Mortara, Engel, vd Zande, etc.

Looks like a healthy depth in quality there. Wish there was more participation from Ferrari though.

Any news on Bentley or Lamborghini entries?

A article announcing either the BMW or Mercedes line up said 6-7 manufacturers, and exactly 20 cars.

We have 6 manufacturers, and 17 cars announced.

I'd love to see Adderly Fong in a Bentley

Or Mirko Bortlotti in a Lamborghini

Still, even though we have this Stellar lineup, it's still a pointless circuit for overtaking.

They should knock down a few apartment blocks so we have better Racing...

Macau GT World Cup 2017

Under the radar of the Vanthoor announcement, we have the 18th and 19th cars for HubAuto.

Romain Dumas and Hiroki Yoshimoto

EDIT: We have Bortolotti in a lambo

And we have a full house

Strong yes, but missing local drivers. Just two with Yoshimoto and O'Young. But where are drivers like Adderly Fong (Bentley - Absolute), Cheng Congfu (Audi - Absolute), Alessio Picariello (Audi R8 LMS Cup champion with Absolute), André Couto (FFF), Marchy Lee (Audi - Phoenix), Pasin Lathouras (Ferrari - AF Corse), Richard Lyons. Well I hope they will then show up at the Sepang 12 hours at least.

The emphasis this year has been to remove Pro Am drivers in a hope for better action unspoilt by as many crashes.

They intend on doing a Pro-Am race in addition next year, that may or may not be at Macau.

I've heard nothing in the way of entries for Sepang, I'm sure Ratel will be in Macau
encouraging teams to enter though


Shame not to see Adderly here too

Pity that FIA WEC and Macau GP Clashed , would have been nice to see Earl Bamber back in Action.

2016 Crashes:
QR: Lyon, Müller, Shen, O'Young. Three gold and one bronze
MR: Capo and Vanthoor crashed. A silver and a platinum driver.

2015 Crashes:
QR: Fong. Fong was silver that year.
MR: Lyons, Estre, Bamber, Derdeale, Inthraphuvasak, Shen, Couto. 4x Pro, 2x Silver and a Bronze.

2014 No big incidents, and in 2013 the Pro drivers caused the big incident on lap 1.

So based on this, it is better to remove the "Pro" drivers from Macau, as they caused the most incidents in the last four GT events.

I don't disagree with you, I'm saying they have pushed to be pro only with the goal of avoiding crashes. Not saying that's right or wrong

The key word is "hope".
