And if you read the laguna website, they are advertising the WC Gt race as a part of the weekend, and those cars are done for the season, last gt race of the year was sonoma. I did hear an ad on the radio here in sacramento this week.

Millions would pay for F1, Nascar or MotoGP.

But very few would pay for Blancpain GT.

Too bad. I would rather watch GT racing than any of the three entities mentioned above. I must be in the minority I guess. Do not see the appeal of Formula 1 and NASCAR anymore. Nothing beyond looking on the internet to see the race results. That's it. GT cars on the other hand are great looking machinery. They look sporty. I can even watch a Blancpain GT practice session or a GT Open qualifying session so I can see these dream cars run around a track.

Looks like Magnus will be running an Audi factory livery:

If it becomes too much of knowing the secret handshake to get in the club to view the race, then you pretty much lost most of your audience. I still don't get how Creventic can stream their races with announcers and pit reporting with a camera in the pits too. We all know that 0.5% of the sportscar hardcore even know about but somehow they (Creventic) do a pretty good job of broadcasting it for anyone anywhere can watch it.

I know a group of guys that decided against this 8hr event and went to Spa to run the 12hr race there instead. It was cheaper (even though the race is longer), the whole race was streamed online so their family/friends could watch it anywhere (great way to convince your wife you are spending all of that money on hookers and blow) and there was lots more information available to potential renters well ahead of time as opposed to this 8hr race (some even wondered if it was going to happen at all).

Yes Magnus will this weekend be running as Audi Sport Team Magnus, and as a full factory supported team for the weekend they must run the livery!

I know WRT are running as a privateer this weekend, not sure if Land have factory backing and livery for the weekend or not

Nice to see Audi supporting Magnus. But the livery doesn't integrate with the body design.

These are better examples:

One more car has dropped out (M1 GT Racing Audi), so down to 19 cars. Land paced practice today- different chassis this weekend but their Petit-winning car is in the paddock.

I wonder if this is streamed on GT1World after all... qualifying and superpole streams are already listed, but the race isn't (unrelated GT4 and GT Asia events on Sunday are still listed and usuallly all Blancpain events are listed beforehand, so by all accounts this race should be listed by now too).

Qualifying: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WIURco6VJI
Superpole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxy3cKCbo4U

Another worrying thing is that everytime CBS Sports showed a Pirelli WC race (whether live or tape-delayed), there was no live stream for that race.

At least WEC has carved itself a niche customer base.

Land and Magnus make it an all Audi front row, followed by Wright, WRT and KPAX: http://sportscar365.com/world-challe...monterey-pole/
