Marcopolo should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
So it looks like it's official, GRC has folded

Read the last para

"My ticket sales were dismal"

THe GRC's problem all along, remember once they tried to go to NASCAR venues and run on evenings or afternoons there, and that was a disaster. How it lasted this long is staggering really.

You've taken that quote out of context. It was in response to the facility allowing unticketed spectators to view the racing, therefore losing out on potential sales.

However, on the basis of that article, I'd say Lydden can count themselves lucky. They could have gone to great expense to host the event and then never been paid by GRC. Blessing in disguise really.

Makes me wonder what kind of due diligence Pucher and Pat did on these guys before teaming up. Surely some of this was public knowledge already.

I would think they might have paid something already to host the event, perhaps a deposit, but sounds like GRC were a sort of partnership, as a lot of the tracks are now being quoted as being owed money from Dyne and GRC, so they must have been paying aswell. And really the pricing would have turned a lot of people away from the Lydden GRC event, it was the same pricing as WRX on a much colder week with far less drivers. So diehards like you would go regardless, but fair weather fans would not go to an event in the cold with a naff entry.

I would have thought that as with most series the track pays a hosting fee in GRC, and then probably hands over the prime advertising slots to the series organiser. Maybe that was not the case with GRC and they HAD to pay to even try and get dates.

Out of context is rather missing the point, why the hell were freeby people allowed to watch in the first place!! MSurely that is the point.


Not sure
