Well there are some noises, but not enough to really convince us if it's going to get off the ground

It would be a shame if this didn't get off the ground - but I must admit that I'm far from optimistic. Media Day is in a fortnight (assuming my calendar is correct) and we've barely got a handful of confirmed entries.

Not sure that we do, I'd prefer they sorted out the mess that currently exists. If there's a huge entry, then maybe, otherwise not.

My proposed regulation has always been 'no race shall have more minutes of qualifying or minutes/laps of racing than it has cars on the grid. The exception shall be for an endurance race which shall have a minimum of 26 cars plus an additional 5 for each hour in excess of 2'. Should solve most of the small grid issues.

As a marshal, I'm volunteered for a couple of these meetings. I may well review that as the season progresses.

Media day is not Media day anymore - it's just a test day.

Media day is postponed (officially due to a clash with the Geneva motor show). No new date confirmed yet.

Is this question just aimed at The Media / possible spectators, or does it also include teams & drivers?

This is the first time I got the "dead parrott" feeling. Surely the Geneva Motor Show event can't have been unknown until now? And the manufacturers could not be present with their cars, but why do they have to? Isn't there enough cars and teams? And Lotti claims the agreed on reducing costs, while still hosting a test day? It all sounds very strange, but I'd love to be wrong.

It's very odd isn't it? "The manufacturers can't be present" - well no - why would they be anyway? It's a customer racing championship - I thought that was the whole point? It's not a manufacturer championship.

geneva motor show is just a ridiculous and nonsesnical excuse. its been cancelled because it would be too embarassing having a media day for only a handful of drivers.

As excuses go that is pathetic. They should have tried "snow", someone may have bought that!

Mixed messages much? Lotti himself said:

”A number of teams then expressed a wish that the Media Day be postponed as they were still finalising cars, drivers or sponsors and so would welcome the extra time this would allow.”

Perhaps UK doesn't have a room for an European thought touring car series. Brexit hitting motorsports some will say.
