Sad to see what has happend to this serie this year! It really was a great serie a few years back, had the luck so see them once and it was great with a 20+ car grid and a very diverse feild, and still very close with good racing! Hope they will strike back next year and run as support to STCC again, they deserve that!

I think it'd be better for this series to die and someone to start something new, to be honest. Oh, and they added a picture to their article about the Pärnu race...

...which is from the race that was held two years ago! Looks a bit better regarding car count I guess...

Have to say I agree with you Jimmy - There's a point when, whatever the attraction of the individual cars, the package doesn't hack it - and a 5 car race simply isn't good enough to sustain a series

I think that the factory build cars aka Viper, Vette, Saleen. Is fantastic cars but they make the homebrew stay away. The only way to make it work is free up the regulations! That will make it possible to do things that can make the non-factorycars competetive and therefore worth the effort. 1.st thing is to lower the weight-limit and drop the produktion minimum on bodyshapes. The regs. make it to expensive as it is now.

been looking at the gallery. not surprisingly a large amount of 911's but a good mix of cars none the less. was the saab 95(kinda old school DTM'esque!) a factory effort?
did the orange and green(no.40) corvette originate from grand am from a few years back?

Looks like we got the new GT serie in Sweden now:
http://www.sportinformation.com/Arti...?article=19603
Its named Swedish GT SuperCup and will be run with basicly GT3 and GT4 rules, but I guess almost anything goes as long as they arent too fast, as theres lots of fast cars in Sweden and Finland that doesnt really fit into GT3 or GT4 homoligation. But anyway, they will do 5 races next season and expand to 7 races in 2011. So I guess Nordic Supercar is basicly dead now. Hope this serie can get some proper management and be a great success! Hope they'll run some races in co-operation with STCC as well, that would mean some 10-20k spectators.

It may be that some drop out because of the fast factory cars, but I do not think the rules are the problem. I have worked for over two years to build a car and do not feel that the rules restricted the possibility of building a fast car. But now, once it becomes clear that perhaps the series dies, I do not find it very funny.
I think it's really fun to fight against ORECA Vipers, that is something to measure my car against. I presented the car here in the forum for a short time ago.
http://tentenths.com/forum/showthread.php?t=118490

If it becomes so that the series is down, so I see this as a major obstacle for amateurs to build a car and be with, because you simply do not have time to build a car adapted to the rules.

NSC calendar for 2010 season is out: http://www.nordicsupercar.com/kalender.php

There are four rounds in Sweden, Finland and Estonia. Alastaro (1.) and Pärnu (3.) events are part of the Finnish Championship Racing series and Anderstorp final is something called The Race Legends. Second meeting of the season is Mantorp, but the the date is not announced yet.

If I have to make an educated guess, I bet the series will be limited to genuine GT3 and GT4 cars only and outside these, there will be some Porsche GT3 Cup and Ferrari Challenge cars to fill in the grid (a.ka. to make sure that there would be more than just handful of cars...). I won't belive any Super Saloon (FIN) or Nordic Supercars* (SWE) will be accepted into the grid.
At least in Finland the organisator kicked them off the events. Next year there might be some joint efforts with finns and swedes in Pärnu and one other event in Finland. IMO those NSC teams, who's cars don't fit into GT rules, should get themselves a finnish license and drive here in the national open class events. Not much spectators expected though, but I think it would be more fun to race if there is more cars on the grid.


*) I mean NSC cars, which don't fall into FIA GT3/GT4 regulations

Maybe I got it wrong (my Swedish ain't too good) but it doesn't sound like that at all. They are talking about cars like BMW M3, Aquila, Megane Trophy etc.

GT3 and GT4 class names don't seem to refer to FIA regulations. Cars will be divided into two categories by weight/power ratio. GT3 = 2.6 kg/hp and GT4 = 3.2 kg/hp.

Oh, I obviously missed your point. That new series seems to be totally different thing than NEZ Baltic GT or NSC or what ever you want to call it....
But still I have lots of doubts concerning NSC visting finnish GT championship events... The finnish organisator is not known from his positive thinking when it comes to non-homologated, more or less home-built "GT" cars, like BMW M1 with an ex F1 engine....

And even one more GT serie in Sweden, "GT Endurance" run to GT3 regs and will start out in 2010 with 3 endurace races run together with "GT3 Cup Challenge", which I'm guessing is a new Carrera Cup serie that will run together with SKK and not STCC.

I guess GT3 Cup Challange is a series for older Carrera Cup cars but I don't really see any point in it as there are already several series where one can run that kind of cars.

Hi

It seems difficult to work together and create a good GT-championship in the Nordic Countries.

Nordic Supercar was a good idea, but what now? Maybe we are ready for a FIA GT3-championship in Scandinavia? We have it in Germany, UK, Brazil, Italy, Australia, China etc. etc.

With races in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and the Baltic countries? And together with STCC, DTC and some high profile races?

In Norway we have started a new championship called GT, with a lot of exciting cars as Corvette Z06, Viper, Porsches etc. Norway is not ready for a proper FIA GT3-championship just yet, but maybe Scandinavia is?

The Porsche Carrera Cup in Sweden is a huge success, but wouldn't a GT3 championship be more popular?

Best regards
