Another new team for Aus GT:http://www.speedcafe.com/2016/12/09/...uracan-aus-gt/

There's some very good operators on this team - let's hope that Mr McConville feels more comfortable in the General Manager role than in his last couple of roles where he's struggled.

Not a bad sweetener for 2017

"Australian GT will offer one of the biggest prizemoney funds in Australian motorsport as it looks to expand the category next season."

Especially for a club racing series - hey Mixer

Let me think for a minute, the racing series that is a rich old man's club is putting up some prize money because a couple of solid teams have threatened not to run sprint rounds next year because of the appalling driving standards...

$200k would not cover the damage done on the Saturday at Highlands.

Is that the rationale for the financial incentive?

On the contrary
Quote:
“For 2017 we will continue with the combined championship entry incentive but also add this enormous AGT Overall Competitor Award for all eligible combined championship competitors.

“The $200,000 cash prize pool is additional to the added investment in media and increased opportunities for manufacturer and team sponsors involvement in hospitality and event interaction.

“Being able to have the AGT teams as the premier category at most of our 2017 events gives us the flexibility to manage the events so we have the best outcome for the AGT teams.”

So WRC is going with a live-streaming package courtesy of Red Bull TV, seems this is definitely the way forward to directly engage fans.

Its an interesting time, right now it seems there are four options for motorsport in as far as broadcasting is concerned:

- FTA TV
- Subscription or Pay TV
- Broadcasting direct to the internet
- No TV coverage at all

Probably different strokes for different categories, but internet broadcasting seems to be becoming more common.

I think at the end of the day a combination of all those elements (if available) are important as they have advantages and disadvantages attached.

The advent of live streaming has done wonders for niche sports.

dont forget delayed coverage on either of the first two at a more available time, which on fox can mean multiple repeats

Not bad at all is it.

Formula 3 more popular than the Dunlop Series as well

I would have thought a series thats wants to "stand on its own feet" and is "not a support category" mightt have been higher.

Not as popular as some would suggest
