Brendan Hartley to a Honda seat? They were very complimentary of him-moreso then STR. I think he’d do really well in SGT

I would love to see Cassidy have a shot in Indy car.

Then Hartley to take his seat in SGT and SF

It seems he is going to race at GT300 again next year with apr & Yokohama tyres.
How about Kota Sasaki? Has he already parted ways with apr?

He could be a 3rd driver,
but he will aim for a regular driver in other team.

I know it's another off-topic but are you guys worried about Nissan right now?

With the Nismo Festival coming up and we've witness Carlos Ghosn being ousted due to corruption charges, are you worried that Nissan might not recover for next year's season?

Are Nissan that desperate for cash that they will quit Super GT? I don't know how they are doing as a company at the moment, but I don't think that's likely.

That would be a massive loss of face for Nissan in Japan if they left SGT. Don’t see it happening unless the company is in peril. Could say that for the other two. Unlike DTM where we’ve had makes come and go the big three Japanese makes have stayed in GT500 for decades. Couldn’t imagine GT500 without one of them.

I don't think Nissan is going anywhere. They're still profitable so it's not a big deal Ghosn is out in terms of making money.

Hypercar? Does this mean the new rules wec prototypes or the Gazoo Racing Super Sport? Maybe/hopefully both being one and the same.
