Bcarr6 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
SRO have moved the Silverstone round back a week to avoid the Nurgburgring 24hr clash

As expected

I'm guessing one or more of the three Germans had a word in SRO ear.

It was said all along since the publication of the initial calendar that it was based on an expectation for a N24H that cleared changed, and that they would likely alter it now they had found out the actual N24H date

Dunno why people think that's shame on SRO? They made an assumption that turned out wrong so quickly amended.

I don't think it was ever up for debate to clash with that race

Exactly, and it's not just the German teams there either. Quite a few Lambos, and works backed Bentleys in the N24. It suits everyone for the race not to clash, and it was just an incorrect assumption.

Thankfully now, everyone is happy!

"SRO wishes to stop the increasing professionalization of the Blancpain GT Series"

o- The grids in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup will be limited to 26 Pro class entries, except for the 24 Hours of Spa
o- The Silver Cup will be added to the Endurance Cup
o- Driver pairings in the Pro-Am class in the Endurance Cup now must include two Bronze-rated drivers
o- The starting grid in the Endurance Cup races will be determined by the combined best times from all three drivers, except at Spa.

The Blancpain GT Sprint Cup, meanwhile, will see changes to its format for next year. Both 60-minute races will now scoring equal points, and featuring separate qualifying sessions for each.

This calendar can be seen as relative consistency from the SRO here which I'm sure is welcomed by the teams.

I personally think the Hungaroring doesn't allow for very good GT Racing, and I'd probably change a few other venues too but nothing is too bad

While it's been hard to find any leaks - speculation is strong that Bentley's well into cooking up its new Conti to the latest regs - apparently its out testing.

Doubt it made FIA homologation testing Ladoux - only the new build Nissan would have been there.

Brian Gush was quoted as saying they'd be happy to develop/race it for a season (in Blancpain) before selling it to customers - ala Audi's latest R8 and the Huracan GT3.

Funny thing is no-one has heard a peep about McLaren putting in work for a new GT3 off the 720S - despite that car being released months before the fat Bentley.

Maybe McLaren are cooking up a French omelette instead?

I don't think it's speculation, Bentley have said their is a new car coming, just not given a certain timeline

As for McLaren, I think they have got caught up in whether DPi will become a global platform, as they would build a car for that. Even if that was the case, they should still do a new GT3 car
