Great format, concept, grid.... the quality of the entry list every year makes me forget that the Racing at Macau is barely worth classing as racing

Can't disagree.

As much as we see limited overtaking, watching the front runners drive the absolute wheels off the cars like Engel and Farfus were was a joy to watch.

Would prefer a Wolrd Cup to be somewhere to be honest.

Nordschleife springs to mind but it doesnt have a casino happy to pay for the category to be there.....

Yes!!! Let's make it in Bahrain, Dubai or Paul Ricard. Empty stands, no charisma, no challenge. You build on failure anyway.

Actually I'd rather watch a race on those three tracks, but maybe that's just me.

I mean, you can at least do a full race on green flag in theory at those tracks...

Those are all better because you'd actually be able to have a race there.

I love the idea of Macau, but it's time to admit that it doesn't work. The best option, if the circuit is still available and the weather is fine at this time of year, IMO, would be Potrero de los Funes.

No government money in San Luis, they spend it on building a third racetrack at La Pedrera.

You can also race in Johor, Goi‚nia or Kyalami. That is not the point.

The local promoter will have to want it and pay for it. It is an FIA World Cup after all.

I would be very nervous seeing my superiors if I were the heads of motorsport at Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Porsche when they ask me to explain the repair bill from Macau.

You were the one who brought up those circuits. Rich just said he'd rather see the race elsewhere, and you were the one who went and picked all the negative circuits. Don't blame others for your negativity!

I think the general point from Rich, and us all, is that this is a great concept, let's just see it at a track where you can have some racing, right???? Haha

Thankyou

I too was wondering where he picked those three tracks from considering I hadn't mentioned any of them.

Would prefer the race elsewhere as I first mentioned but that's easier said then done.

Us fans and the drivers would prefer a good track for racing and overtaking whereas the FIA and manufacturers involved would prefer something with plenty of people trackside and someone to pay for it hence why its at Macau.

On this weeks Double Stint Podcast John Dagys mentioned that Dr Stefan Walliser from Porsche suggested some type of tie in with the Abu Dhabi F1 meeting. Thats certainly something I haven't even thought about
