16 cars was the minimum requirement, and usually there'd only be about 3/4s of that requirement with a few weeks to go before each season, at which point SRO stepped in and funded the remaining entries.

You can see from the final season when it all fell apart. Essentially the "Team Russia" and "Team China" entries weren't genuine entries.
Thank you, that's very interesting!

Perfectly pointed out, I totally agree with both of you!

Same idea came to me seeing them running yesterday, and this morning when leaving

Maybe they try to get Tarquini to drive for free+expenses, if not someone else will fill in with the same deal?

Not just GT1, that sort of thing happened in the old SuperTouring ETCC, before S2000 manufacturer entries came in. I know of at least one team that got under-the-table 'start money', and I'm sure they weren't the only ones.

Season will start this weekend, and we still don't know who will be the 16th driver (and almost zero chance to a 17th).

Oh yes, so it does. Time for Volvo to remove that testing ballast

I don't know if this is the good thread for this kind of question (if not, please show me the correct): did anybody knows anything about the Monza schedule? There is a flight from Milano at sunday late in the evening, and I need to know if I can reach it - it's mainly depends on when the main race ends.

Here attached you can find the whole Monza timetable, toto92

By the way, sunday races are at 12:15 (Opening Race) and at 14:15 (Main Race).

But at least the European Formula 3 race at 15:15 would be a big pity to miss. After that there will be at 16:15 the French Formula 4 race 3 to end the day.

From which Milan airport will you flight?
