You can have it all. Just not all at once. It was their problem.

So, CRS = Kirkaldy & Goodwin

Then what is Garage 59?
That seems to be Tim Mullen's team.
Is it linked to CRS in any way? Or was it just a considence that Chris Goodwin drove for it a couple of times and that Mullen used to drive for CRS when they were still fielding Ferrari's?

on Endurance-Info there was a small article speculating they (Garage 59) might switch to Aston Martin: http://www.endurance-info.com/fr/gar...artin-en-2019/

I think you will find that Garage 59 is owned/funded by Chris Niarchos and run by Tim. Given the result of the recent court case it is very likely that they will not running McLarens in 2019 and Aston Martin could prove an interesting prospect.

The Maserati MC12 that raced in the 2005 ALMS seaon (or most of it):
http://www.racingsportscars.com/chas...000015440.html

Feels like this model had a long FIA GT1 life in the late 2000s, but this chassis didn't do anything after October 2005.

The track on the Maserati was too wide. IMSA invited and allowed the car to race-I think there were given a few races to revise the track of the car, but I now don't remember if it was ever revised. It ran provisionally. The car was owned by a collector, and went into his collection after collecting some race history. The MC12 was never legal for ACO GT-1 because of the width, but was allowed in FIA GT racing.

In the 2005 ALMS, Risi entered a Maserati MC12. It ran full-time but wasn't allowed to score points. Drivers were Andrea Bertolini and Fabrizio de Simone.

In the 2007 ALMS, Doran entered a Maserati in two rounds.

Neither could never claim a win over Corvette or Aston Martin.

Which suggests it was even more restricted than it was in Europe!

Iím sure Corvette and Aston wouldíve lobbied hard to ensure this. And as we see the Maserati had a negligible effect in the IMSA series unlike in FIA GT. Even with the car being run by a good team such as Risi and with factory drivers. One wonders how FIA GT wouldíve looked like post 2004 if the FIA had not have been more open to the car like the ACO were.

I'm still trying to find it but one of the raced Corsa cars went up for auction last year and got less than one of the street cars. And that was claimed to be the pattern for them all, think it was a Classic Driver article but can't find it. Was a car that looked great, sounded great but they forgot there was a rule book.
