If that's the case then I'm definitely tempted to go, providing that the view at Silverstone is decent (will be using the British round to gauge that) and that the ticket prices aren't ridiculous.

There is always some sort of elevation in articles from GRC where they write how special, revolutionizing, incredible, good, evolving etc. GRC is. GRC seems to be over the top if one is to believe their articles.

Will be interesting though to see this car.

I assume Lydden did know this.

If they manage to get +20 cars it still could be fun....but doubt it will attract big crowd to visit the Lydden event.

I don't think they did: if they did then why would they have mentioned Supercars (and potential entries from UK/European Supercars) in the early press releases?

So is this finally the end for GRC? It was too hard to run a super car here with all the stupid rules they put in place after the first couple of years. Not many could raise the funds for a $400k super car and then VW decided to pump real money into Andretti.

Knew something was up when I saw Austin Dyneís MSport Fiesta for sale. I do wonder what happens to the cars here. Beyond Dyneís I havenít seen any posted anywhere.

Be interesting to see how long NBC give it the level for free to air that current do. Alll very sad for me. In two years before the first race when we bought the Rally America guys over to Lydden and then bringing Gronholm into the series. I thought we were onto something and could finally get it to work over here. Then new ownership, manufacture fees, effective ban on independents, parking lots and everything else.

After reading this I would not be surprised to see Lydden cancelled to be honest

Must be costing GRC a fortune to get cars over here, and no-one is going to watch glorified Lites are they.

Just can it like they should have years ago.

So have they dropped the Lites?? Will the gold class just feature modified "Lites" or are new cars being built?

And sounds like the Gold Class will just be the top class for one year, (June to Oct), if they are going to introduce a Platinum Class in 2019?

Yeah, as I understand it the "regular" Lites are no longer part of the Championship. So the 2018 Championship will consist of "Gold Class" modified Lites and the Polaris buggies. Those two will be joined by the mystery "Platinum Class" in 2019.

Unless the "Gold Class" can attract a significant number of entries I think this is a real possibility now.

I am surprised by the silence from the other teams/drivers. I thought VARX, OMSE or Vermont SC would have said something.

I saw a few comments from Tanner Whitten (former Lite driver) on Facebook following the "Gold" news announcement: he doesn't seem to have much positive to say about the Championship.

Does seem all very last minute and maybe a knee jerk reaction. Most race series would make a big issue of a change of formula, and celebrate the end of that class at their final race and have the new car on display.

What bodywork will these Gold cars have?

If it's meltdown Fiestas, I'm out.
