Ok then, this snuck under the radar somewhat, clearly the 'World Cup' tag isn't working as planned.

Another great grid, great circuit...

Anyone else intending to watch a yellow flag fest qualifying race later?

It usually is, but always worth watching for the few clean laps, it's just such a bonkers concept for an event.

I was speaking more in terms of the TV direction and commentary more than the on track action. Will be interesting if one of the Porsches can get around Vanthoor tomorrow because the Porsche seems faster than the Audi on the straights but slower in the handling sections of the track.

2016 Macau GT Cup - FIA GT World Cup

Every year I'm excited by the timing, and the idea of this race.

Every year I watch the qualy race back and think, or yeh, they just convoy round for 12 laps, and like 4 of them are actually full speed

Just wish there was a couple of overtaking opportunities on the track


Edit: I'm also sitting here scrolling through an Instagram feed full of fantastic pictures of GT3 cars ripping through the streets of Macau. Shame the video doesn't have the same effect for some reason

I'm similar, but I could happily watch the onboards from full speed laps all day, it's a crazy course. Last year, Mortara v van der Zange was a lot of fun IIRC.

I can see the race today being interesting, but if Vanthoor stays in front in lap 1 I would think restarts will be the only way for the Porsches to pass; the Audi just pulls out too much over the mountain.

Absolutely horrific accident for Vanthoor, never seen a GT3 car take off like that, glad hes ok.

So, Vanthoor won? Or Estre? I presume it will be Vanthoor, despite the big crash, due to countback.

I think Estre has won it because the car that caused the red flag is usually excluded and Bamber has a 5 second penalty, but then again there is usually a 1 lap count back so who knows

Edit: Confirmed that Vanthoor has won, Estre second and Engel 3rd.

Farce of a concept imo.

I agree, there's no way a car that crashed out and caused a race ending red flag should be the winner of the race.

Wow, how many racing laps were done across the GT and both TCR races today?

Agree that the result looks really bad, you can see the cringe on the faces of everyone on that podium.

Full green laps? Three, I think. The last two of the second TCR race and the first lap of the GT race.

Not a great day of racing. Unsatisfying, to put it mildly.
