on_to_it has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I believe you will see larger fields in the next rounds, but who can say for sure.

The V8ST website says;
The V8Challenge Cup will also enjoy extensive television coverage on TV3s Gillette Motorsport show with all five rounds screened in a delayed highlights programme.

I had confirmation that it was to be on yesterday but I recorded the show and didn't see it. Something went amiss!

with a V8SC round this weekend.. then the Tier 1 Taupo round the next.. it might be a while before we see a CC race.

Yeah, the TV schedules are a bit full aren't they.

Who knows. I saw somewhere Kevin Williams wants to have a crack, so maybe.

I still think that for it to be a NZ Championship it should run at least one round at each track,
Hampton Downs has been left out so far due to the fact the other 6 tracks had a so called investment with TMC/MSNZ,

but If they combined,
run ST, CC/BNT's, and the support classes at 7 tracks I think it would be great.

Really I think the fans want to see The Super Tourers at the same meetings as all the other Tier 1 support classes. But the support classes must have decent grids otherwise people get bored really quick.

I'd say have:

Super Tourers
CC/NZV8's (no MRX car)
GT Cars
Formula Fords
Suzukis
Utes (if you feel you really must)
TRS (would be fantastic but would probably only match up with 1 or 2 rounds of their series)
Motorcycles would be good too

Just my 2c

The current championship series doesn't want to go to Hampton downs as they don't have control over the venue apartments so ego overruled what competitors wanted.

Mountainstar I like your comments and agree that too many people incl current nzv8 competitors sat on their butt for too long and paid the price.

I dont think that is the reason.
The apartment/spectator issue is probably the smaller part of the reasons.
I think the big reason is the other 6 tracks invested in TMC years ago,
and HD has not.

Think you will find the HD made a concious decision not to pursue NZ Championships prefering instead to take on the Historic events and/or others where there maybe a bit of a cash cow coming in through the gateways.

Of course there will all ways be something in the back ground that assisted them come to that decision

SM, they wanted the series, the series didnt want them, then toyota stated they wanted to go there no matter what so they had to go but still no V8's and in the end that was another nail in the coffin for msc. At the end of it I guess HD did the next best thing and moved on to better things. I heard that BMW meetings were fantastic.

$15 for a weekend pass....well that speaks volumes doesn't it

Reminds me of when i went to puke for R1 last year. As long as you got there after lunch on the saturday you got in for free!....why? because no one was there.

I'm sorry but the NZV8s are really clutching at straws here

$15 still couldn't drag me away from Legends of Speed at Hampton Downs this weekend.

15 bucks isn't bad will there be 4-5 stops during the day for "lunch break entertainment" and hours of sitting around while a select few go on a pit walk?
