After the FIA GT series descend into Blancpain Sprint, it seems that GT Masters has a chance to be a better Euro GT series

With no races in Britain, Italy, France or Belgium, I can't say it's a proper European championship.

Agree with you, but I believe it will achieve the reputation near DTM, with more rounds in Nogaro, Algarve, Zolder and Spa

But that's not ADAC's plan.

DTM is fueled by factory support. ADAC GT won't have the same media profile.

It is not ant wont be Euro GT, its more like the races are mainly in Germany, but lineup is international more than less...i dont know how good next year will be, as this season was a little turndown in numbers (for good of everyone). 2012 was grand with more than 10 manufacturers and all big teams. This year no exception.

Reminds me ADAC STW cup....with same intl. lineup and a lot of brands and good teams. Looks like big names likes to reunite in Germany from time to time...you cant deny it is a big profile series.

The GT Masters has certainly grown over the years, but it still needs a lot to grow into the same level as DTM. The DTM, even with its falling TV ratings and crowd attendance numbers still gets higher crowds and ratings than the GT Masters. But one shouldn't underestimate the ADAC. They have lots of money and seem to be willing to push the GT Masters further into the public. Although the ADAC is also cooperating with the DTM, it can't do harm to have a finger into another pie .

I am still dreaming of a series of two or three endurance races with a combined field from DTM and ADAC-GT. Would be like our own Super-GT.

DTM cars used to compete with SP9 SP8 cars in the Nur 24. Don't know why ADAC or ITR.e.V doesn't allow it any more.

Opel isn't in DTM anymore and Audi have the R8, Merc were never interested and have the SLS should they be.... So I guess it all comes down to a lack of manufacturer interest. (Though of course by now protecting the regular teams' investments in GT3 machinery might also play into it.)

DTM cars are as fast as P2 cars now. They've just gotten too fast for that circuit.

True enough, even the GT3s are almost down to 8 minutes flat on the VLN track (8:30 being considered the lower limit for "safe lap times" a few years ago).

But then, I wasn't necessarily thinking about Nordschleife for the endurance races...

Yes, that's the point. Now I know why. However, isn't it pity that Nordscheleife is becoming a private test track (No offence to GTR and 911 fans ;-)) for marketing rather than a genuine race track for races other than VLN. Safety is important, yes, but I just feel uncomfortable with that.
