You may see Macpherson moonlight in the Porsche throughout the season.

Scraping the bottom of the barrell?? He either turns up or he doesn't - wasn't your question about who would turn up with STM rather than conversations of performance capability?

You can also add Dylan O'Keefe in the HSY Audi for MPC

While this is true, I was being a little facetious with my comment

Effectively a works driver, maybe, effectively a good example of someone running AusGT, no.

Great to see Tony back especially after his accident last year.

Has raced an Aston Martin, Mercedes and now and Audi in 12 months. Not a bad gig

Erebus Motorsport has commenced discussions with several manufacturers including Bentley as it looks to make a return to GT racing.

The Melbourne squad has been longing to rejoin the GT3 scene having been absent since contesting the 2016 Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hour with a pair of Mercedes SLS GT3s.

In a bid to resurrect its GT racing roots the team is currently involved in talks with number of brands as it seeks to acquire new GT3 race cars.

I got the impression they are aiming for 2019, although it wasnt clear.

but im guessing ist a bit late now if they dont have cars in place at least for the first few rounds (round 3 is just over two months away)

Word floating around is that Round 1 at the Australian Grand Prix is over subscribed with entries. Hopefully some of this momentum and competitors continue into the rest of the season

Pretty impressive drawcard for the event and Australian GT.

I am not sure of grid density however one would imagine it would it around the 40 car mark. So a decent spectacle - hopefully plenty of green flag running.

Ive looked at the Aust Gt website and it is suggesting up to 30 cars, although i would think this may be more marketing than official. (for the record 29 last year). In theory also includes trophy cars

AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX

With up to 30 exotic GT3 and GT4 cars, valued at over $30M, Australian GT boasts the largest Level 1 field in Australia, with their stunning performance second only to Formula 1.

30 it is then!

Great news for round 1 of the Australian GT. Good to see to Marranello back out after they were MIA at the Bathurst 12 hour

Australian GT confirms AGP sprint format

so same format as last years gP, which IMO is good

Pros in Race 1&3, Ams in 2&4

No driver penalties for skill
