Yep that's right, I tried to read 2010, I didn't notice that said 2011. Last GT1 was from Matech time.

Well, by now fia GT3 maybe dead, but i dont' see a GT alternative lastly, and seems the big brands won't waste too much on GTE, more than new american sponsored viper. I think you are selling too early the bear pelt before hunting it, by now the only hazard to GT1 is the BES, the wec GTE is far ahead, till august GT1 is well alive.

The one team per brand rule is ridiculous. A six-brand, 24-car GT1 championship would be cool. Plus it would make teams easier to find a car.

in 2011 ILMC regulamentation, heavy detuned gt1 cars were allowed only in gt-am, but none entered in the 24h of le mans (and other races of ILMC).

It's more a problem of a team with that funds for an international rounds, than to find the 10th car, there exist lots of GT3 cars eligible, but Ratel Slightly complicates a little his life with 2cars*brand, but not much (now he has 9) and has more car/brand variety.

Everything would have been easier if Schubert had entered BMW, heico SLS, prodrive AM and Manthey porsche, forcing other teams to carry a Ford, a Maserati, a Corvette GT3 a GTR or a Camaro.

They cannot be serious right? Ok lets have five teams for next year....

Ratel really needs to drop this two car per brand crap, this aint F1 its sportscar racing, its a tad different.

Why not? It gives more variety if there are no GT1 machinery there is not sense of having less than 8 cars, what we have gained these years by losing GT1 machinery...
I thought that was to have more variety, cause for high costs, and works teams we will allways have the Wec.
I only hope I did stop seeing the Murci GT1 and the GTR GT1, and the Matech GT1, for something...

Sure, but it doesn't fit SRO's F1- way of idio... thinking.

We've already sent FIA GT1, FIA GT2 and FIA GT4 to the graveyard, at least they'd be consistant with their "work" if it was FIA GT3 that was axed after this season. Otherwise, expect 8-10 car grid next year (which isn't actually that big of a drop from 2012)

jeez, insanity insues.

Has SRO not seen that GT1 World hasn't really managed to abide by the 2 car per marque rule without 'inventions'?

Funny news. A team that has been talking about joining since February announces their team manager (?) only today?
And then the guy says they want to be World Champions. Does that mean they think they will be the Audi R8 LMS reps in the World Championship in 2013? LOL

I saw a picture somewhere of the car, apparently, on track, in their colors. Rather silly if there's an R8 out there just gaining dust in some garage.

I'm pretty sure that they want this with GT3 Europe because the WC will fold.

If they need that unknown team for such a powerfull brand like Audi, let's go... First he should secure the three brands supported by himself and then try to backup the powerfull brands.
