Ack you know what, I love this circuit. Not too wide. Some flowing corners. Different kerbs all over the place. Gravel. Elevation change. Looks good.

I love it. There, I said it.

And not huge amounts of run off before you find a wall or armco, a bit like Bathurst and Suzuka.

That was brilliant. Hopefully the momentum keeps going for Kyalami - it's a cracking race track.

Porsche were rather fortunate with the interruptions, but a clean sweep (victory, driver/manufacturer's title, silver cup) is as good as it gets.

More of those kind of tracks please.

The racing in the sun just looked fantastic, shame about the stormy finish but didn’t mar what was a really well presented essentially new event

Hopes for IGTC in 2020-

- More local teams fulfilling manufacturer entries, less of people like M Sport and WRT doing world tours. Porsche got it spot on this year, no team did more than 2 rounds.

- Honda, Lexus and McLaren committed to full seasons. It was great to see Honda at 4/5 races this year. Be great to see some more of the Lexus and Mclaren in IGTC. Lamborghini felt under committed at times

- Better coverage of Suzuka, it still feels like the weaker link in the series.

- scrap FCY > SC.... please!!!!


Hoping to see some of the British, Italian and Japanese manufacturers take the fight to a German dominated series in 2020, and looking forward to seeing how an SRO style endurance race works on the Indy GP circuit

Apparently SRO have a 10 year deal with the circuit.

As for local teams getting involved, that would be great but there is no local GT3 presence so that could be difficult.

Pleased to hear the circuit has a long term contract as that should allow everything to strengthen over the next few years

And sure there is little GT3 presence now, so this circuit is really the exception to the rule. Hopefully we might see a few more local entrants in the coming years

ICGT was pretty solid this year overall. The exception was the Spa 24. All of the other races are rewatchable. Favorite one of the year was probably Suzuka 10 hours. Laguna Seca did go safety car free, but the grid was still too small.

Improvements needed are:

1. The obvious one. End FCY to Safety car. FCY for debris and stalled cars. Only use Safety cars for genuine crashes.

2. Kyalami needs more daylight racing.

3. Spa grid needs to be smaller.

4. Bathurst always has so much potential but the fun of it is taken away by so many safety cars. I think the event should be GT3 only plus a couple of those Marcs perhaps to make up a national class.

5. The Laguna Seca 8 hours is STILL geo blocked on youtube in the USA.

The world is perhaps ultimately to be defined as a place of suffering. Therefore Nissan is going to leave the series and Aston Martin is coming in.

Who else is joining and leaving?

.
I agree strongly that FCY to SC is a pain, but as someone who has marshalled the Spa 24 the last 2 years (Radillion & Blanchimont respectively) there is no way we would have gone out on track (as quickly as we did) to deal with the big incidents we had at night if there was race neutralisation with a Safety Car.

Drivers never slow until they meet the safety car train, anyone pitting will be running at race pace until they catch up.

For genuine crashes - FCY every time.

What doesn’t disappoint you Juntos

Ever miserable

The rest of us will continue to enjoy our light hearted speculation, the point of this forum
