WOOHOO!!! I missed this when first posted but this makes me happy.

In other (slightly related) news - no Trans Am at Mosport/CTMP this year. Too bad, I do enjoy that series. But I'll happily trade it for PWC GT. The first race weekend of the year at CTMP just got better.

Pirelli World Challenge looks like it's got the potential to be even better in 2015 than it was this year!

Really nice to be able to look forward to it!

Another Lizards article, Still essentially "no comment", but some interesting notes in it:

"As far as the quantity, the equipment required is much different, and for two trucks, running three cars makes sense, and even four cars would be possible if you're really efficient on your truck packing," Ingraham said. "Three cars is the right number, but making it all work, finding the right folks, making the budget numbers work – all of that is sitting on my desk right now. Looking at the combined World Challenge and TUDOR Championship calendars, the costs, the conflicts, and all of that is where I'm focused at the moment."

And in full disclosure, I've talked with Will the last 2 seasons about running one of their Z4's in PWC (2014 before I agreed to the Ferrari deal and for 2015).

However, in the real world I don't know how they'd get the budget to run the cars from those 2 drivers. Palttala might bring a little bit, but not enough to run the car for the entire season and definitely not enough to support both cars. Since they're buying new cars I'd bet the intention is to rent them as a customer program to get their (Turner) money back. They're very good GT-A cars because unlike most of the other GT3's, they have yaw-control. Not Just ABS and TC.

Yes, Palttala is for sure a gold rated driver. But I don't think he is platinum.

I don't think Palttala brings money directly, but could Turner has some of a construction with MarcVDS owner Marc van der Straten maybe? Because I thought Turner have some people from the MarcVDS team during the race weekends working on the car. So maybe Turner gets some kind of discount with paying the MarcVDS mechanics/engineers if Palttala drives?

I though the yaw-control / DSC / ESP was banned end of 2013. At least I've read the Z4s haven't been using it anymore in Europe this season.

I don't know about that, but the ones here in North America have it.

That's pretty weird, but you know better! I actually thought the Turner Z4 was the only Z4 GT3 / GTD in the States.

And the numbers keep swelling: Dragonspeed will have 2, possibly 3 Mercedes SLS on the grid:

http://www.racer.com/pwc/item/110130...rs-on-the-rise

Is there going to be a point when they realize they don't need the Porsche Cup class? I guess they might be hedging their bets on a downturn in numbers in 2016 when TUSC finally get's their heads out of their butts.

While we're dreaming, how about a couple of Nissan GTRs and a few full season V12 Vantages.
PWC already boasts a really stellar grid, but there's always room for more!

The possibilities are almost endless!
