Channel 7 back too judging by this release from the Liqui-Moly Facebook page

"7 Network’s, Mark Beretta and MotorActive/Liqui-Moly Australia Managing Director, Bruce Morrison delivering the great news; Liqui-Moly has signed on to remain the naming rights sponsor of the Bathurst 12 Hour through to 2022. Supercars Events, 7 Network (Channel 7) and Liqui-Moly are all committed to continuing the massive year-on-year growth Australia’s International Endurance Race has experienced since Liqui-Moly came on board in 2013."

- Lexus (same for Lexus, depending is Suzuka might be a success, i could see Lexus become part of IGTC)
There was a Squadra Corse team this year, I think it was Trofeo Motorsport.

I'm not sure how many times MW has to say this, but after racing F1 and LMP1, he has no interest in racing anything again. How on earth would you get a rush like those two cars?

Not sure. I've seen him there the last couple of years, but I only saw one person from SRO there this year. EDIT: Better answer below.

Wise words and good perspective from Ratel - which no doubt the topic will raise its head over the coming months in light of the # safety cars over the weekend.

Quote:
While the event continues to become more professional with 12 Pro entries this year, Ratel says the event must not lose sight of its origins and continue to cater for gentlemen drivers.

“We have seen growth in the professional area of the grid and we have to be careful not to lose the Pro-Ams, which are essential for GT racing,” he added.

“It is great to be more professional but we need to remember that these events are where they are today because of the non-professional drivers who were there at the beginning.

You would have seen him wandering the pits on Saturday night...oh wait you weren’t there....

We had forum members from afar as Europe and the UK make the effort to attend the race and for some not the first time so kudos to them.

Looking forward to next year already.

zing!

Hope Chaz doesnt get ostracized out from BMW after Sunday and gets it across the finish line in 2019. With his speed the last 2 years it would be close to 1st if it makes the full 12 hours

I'm pretty sure they will have looked in far more detail at the shootout lap and the first 3 hours of the race than at a mistake that can be ironed out with increasing amounts of racing experience in these cars.

Did you want some cream with that humble pie?

I wonder if Mr Richards would ask Tickford to run the Aston, or assist in it at least, Stanaway obviously has ties as well.

Only if its a GT4...

On another note, I still do not understand why Tickford are not running a Mustang GT4, throw some kids in they are keeping an eye on, along with someone like Paul Morris or Glenn Seton to mentor, do it in the 77 replica livery and plaster the sides with their logo, and have some of their premium optioned cars in a marquee in the paddock.
