Streaming is definitely the way to go if it is on a good enough backend. Especially with social media streaming is a huge gateway for sports that don't see the benefit in paying for free-to-air TV packages.

This is an interesting avenue for Speedcafe, but I feel like they have fingers in many conflicting pies.

Good on TQ for going his own way, he will make a go of it - but boldly stating "we are not a support category" and then racing on the Shannons Card is ironic in my book.

One would hope there is going to be some action regarding driving standards in AGT, especially after the carnage at Hampton Downs that has hampered a couple of team's B12H testing plans. Walkinshaw basically saying they are not going to race in the sprints because of too much damage isn't a good look... Although given a Walkinshaw driver caused the crash in this instance, Adrian Burgess' comments about driver quality in the sprint races is novel.

Not sure of the irony you have cited in regards to the Shannons Nationals? Who are they supporting on the Shannons bill?

Because it is basically one step above club racing.

2 steps isn't it?

Club, State and then National racing? Correct me if I am wrong but the Shannons Series is a National Series?

Can you clarify who Aus GT is supporting on the Shannons Nationals though Mixer as per your previous posts?

Pedantry. In professionalism & presentation the Nationals is one step above club racing, with a mishmash of categories racing in front of the pit crews (of which I have regularly been one), someone's brother in law and a goat.

I have no doubt that not paying to be on the TV card with VASC is probably a good move for AGT fiscally - after all we know who is paying the bills there, but I personally wouldn't be crowing about leaving supports for VASC and going racing with the Nationals.

Soooooooo you agree that they aren't supporting anyone.

The move is about about positioning and track access rather than the need to race in front of higher numbers of pit crew, in laws and goats.

Mr Quinn was very disappointed in the SMP experience with VASC in 2016 which despite a crowd and television didnt serve Australian GT much purpose.

Clearly the Shannons National isn't your cup of tea Mixer - but at least have a broader perspective to understand that nor is the VASC everyone's cup.

sports sedans? F3 productions cars, trophy series, shannons

Really they are 3 events on the shannons nationals card. Just a bit player filling a spot on an event card

Was there an alternative?

They could run their own meetings, but they'd then need to find some support categories anyway for those meetings?

Shannons might be one stop above club racing, but it's also only one step below Supercars in the ladder?

I think the point of AUS GT going to the Nationals is that it'll be a big fish in a small pond instead of a small fish in a big pond.

The independence of running alone and in the Nationals means it can build its own name as an important series, not a support for VASC

To that point, I don't think it matters if the Nationals are generally lower level. The AUS GT will provide the series with a genuine legitimate set of races, and the rest of the Nationals will be fun fillers that will make for a nice varied day of racing.

It's better for AUS GT than trying to shine hidden behind VASC

Going to be interesting how well their standalone rounds are run, and how the entertainment stacks up for the punters that do show up.

So.. the brand already racing in GTs that had a VASC team apparently sign them up, despite a prominent local involvement with another VASC team...

Could that team be Albury based, and could the brand start with A and end in MG?

Nick Percat running around in a brand spanking CLA45 family truckster...

Correlation doesn't necessarily mean causation, but the evidence does fit the vaguebook post we got.

BJR are a solid operation, no reason I couldn't see them doing a credible GT program.
