By the sounds of the cars that were shipped to Australia after Kyalami last year, I can't imagine numbers could be that low.

Seems a strange tactic to delay an entry list this long when cars have been shipped, tested etc

Organisers put our release re no impact on event from fires.

Elsewhere, I've seen online comments from Mr Craill suggesting that there'll be an entry list tomorrow.

No idea why the delay but we may get an explanation at some stage.

I believe that will be acceptable.

Interesting name on those mclarens, wondered whether we would actually see 59 Racing and Garage 59 Racing in the same race

Make for some tough comms

Oof Only 2 GT4s? And one of them is TBD! Perhaps someone could enlighten me as to the lack of entries in that category? Waning interest perhaps?

I kinda think the B12hr is just one of those races where you are in the top tier, or not at all.

Must be pretty heavy mirror watching for any GT4 car

Organisers only interested in GT3?

The organisers push to remove the invitational cars has also been a negative.

The loss of the Daytona's and Corvettes along with the reduction in GT4 is disappointing

I'm not interested because there's not enough of them. If the organisers had more, then I'd care. But 3-4 cars in a class isn't enough for me.

I'm questioning whether you need Pro-Am and Silver classes, however. These serve roughly the same purpose. SRO seem big on classes for every possibly combination.

Looking forward to this one as ever!

About 44 entrants, with 22 strictly Pro teams? I think Pro / Pro Am alone would be a great show, so maybe they're trying to dwindle the entry? The last class appears to be half one team and all the same Marque...

Very little interest in running GT4 in Australia.

Plenty of cars here to build a decent grid of them, but no one is coughing up the money to do so.

How many GT4s are in Australia?

2-3 KTMs
1 Aston Martin
1-2 BMW's

There was chat about a Mustang making it to Australia but unsure if one ever did actually get delivered in the end?

Why aren’t European GT4 teams coming to the 12hr, the GT3 teams do in droves

The 12hr only a few years ago attracted plenty of interest from overseas teams wanting to run in lower classes, what has changed?
