The only shame (and its very minor) is that a very good looking (IMHO) Porsche has been replaced.

I understand that G-Cat racing are still planning on bringing their GT3 Porsche along, possibly from Snetterton onward

British GT teams must spend an absolute fortune on testing.

Well they need to develop the cars somehow. Maybe they could cut it down a bit though

Teams have always spent money in varying amounts on testing. Some can afford to do private tests, some share, some test on track days and others are stuck with open testing the day before a meeting.

I don't think this has changed particularly last or this year, tbh.

Which begs the question: why do you think "maybe they could cut it down a bit"? What would that achieve, apart from going into race meetings with no idea of what changes to the car might do?

I guess if they have the advantage, they need to use it whatever way they can.

I donít begrudge them doing this, but the organisers need to keep an eye on it, as it can spiral out of control as we know

The biggest 'problem' that British GT has is allowing Platinum graded drivers (eg. Nicki Thiim) to compete.

It's using a sledgehammer to crack a nut, and must be costing someone a fortune (even if the manufacturers are covering it). It also takes away opportunities for younger (semi-)professionals to make a name for themselves.

Good for fans though, seeing factory drivers competing in a National series.

Well it supposed to be a mixture of both and thereís nothing wrong with that. Drivers like Thiim add to the series. Maybe they should consider a pro-am category?

If it wasnít for these factory backed drivers maybe some teams wouldnít have the backing to compete

If anyone is planning to go to the Brands Hatch event and would be interested in viewing from a suite in the Brabham Stewart Building please get in touch or take a look at V8-Hospitality.co.uk or the facebook page.

Plenty of options from purely event entry tickets (with suite access) to full food and drink packages.

Nearly time to pack the bag for Snetterton. If anyone sees me with the safety car in the paddock, feel free to introduce yourself

Will do - and we hope that your appearances on track will be kept to the absolute minimum. Remember to smile, you never know who might be papping you (as I believe the young people say) !

Snetterton should be good. It usually provides close racing for the GTs, whether on the old layout or the new
