Which might just be the best TV-package of any sportscar series in the world... I have no idea about Super GT's TV-package, so I might not know what I am talking about.

Unless Sachsenring is with GT1, I expect to see that one change, as they said that they'd avoid clashes with VLN before the 24 hour race... and then, the VLN-calender isn't official as of now, either.

Indeed, even though the ratings sucked. But I guess the fact that Mercedes is expected to jon the series big time means there's someone to pay the bill.

I didn't follow the GTMasters much before this season but the neat TV-Coverage really makes the difference.

I like the new calendar, good to see that we don't do one track twice as it was this year. Two rounds at Oschersleben was really a bit much. The only thing missing is a race at the Norisring..

Says who?

In fact, both the ADAC and the tv station kabel eins were very pleased with the ratings.

The marketshare.

While the ratings might be respectable from a motorsports point of view, they weren't from a general perspective.

The season finale was watched by 350.000 people, the races always got around 3,5-4% market share, Kabel 1 is used to about 7% in that timeslot.

Every rerun of a sitcom or whatnot in that timeslot would have gotten better ratings for Kabel1 with much less cost and effort attached compared to a live sports broadcast.

That's why I think they keep showing the races as long as someone pays the bill, the ratings itself aren't good enough to justify the effort, especially since it's no sports station but rather a normal entertainment channel.

It's not all about the absolute ratings, though.

For example, "Stromberg" (a German "The Office"-clone) doesn't have great ratings either, but it does a lot for the TV-station's image, in that case Pro7.

Similarly, I'd rarely watch Kabel 1 outside of some classic movies they have on from time to time, but the GT-Masters broadcast made me watch the so-stupid-that-it's-actually-awesome reality-TV-show Heli-Loggers...

Think of it as a "loss leader" - it might not be profitable in itself, but it attracts customers you'd have a hard time reaching otherwise.

I'd think the German commentating would be more interesting than anything Speed can come up with. That would be sweet if Speed had it though, get some American interest in GT3 for maybe the introduction of a NA GT3 series.

Rainer Braun (the German announcer) is quite the legend, but he's getting old and somewhat confused on occassion, which makes his commentary either really fun or rather annoying to listen to always depending on your personal point of view.

Well I can't understand a lick of German, but the commentary just has more energy than some boring American guy fom Speed. Same concept with SuperGT and it's enthusiastic Japanese commentators. Suppose I'ved picked up alittle German from watching the GT Masters, boxundstopen .
