Have many cars announced entries other than the Mclaren?

HSY Audi is one. Rio Nugara has something to do with it.

Regulars including Valvoline MPC, Peter Hackett, Scott Taylor, Tony Bates, Adrian Deitz, Yasser Shahin, Mark Griffiths, Justin McMillian and Jim Manolias you would expect likely to line up.

Aussie Driver Search semi-pro winner Lee Partridge will make his national-level racing debut in Australian GT at Albert Park next month.
Partridge, who won $150,000 for taking out the semi-pro class last year, will spend some of that money on running ADS' Audi GT3 car on Australian Grand Prix weekend.

It will make his national-level debut, as well as being his first competitive outing in the V10-powered Audi, which is fresh from racing at the Bathurst 12 Hour.

“It’s a dream come true to not only compete in the Australian GT class, but to do it in my home town at the Australian Grand Prix,” said Partridge.

Smart move, cashing in his "money" and getting to drive something before it all falls over.

Reigning Intercontinental GT Challenge Bronze Driver’s Champion Kenny Habul leads an impressive array of Mercedes-AMG entries into the opening round of the CAMS Australian GT Championship on the streets of Melbourne next weekend, the US-based Australian campaigning a Scott Taylor Motorsport prepared AMG GT3 alongside 2017 CAMS Australian Endurance Champion Peter Hackett and reigning Endurance Champion Max Twigg.

For Australian fans it is expected that the Grand Prix won’t be the only time we will see Habul, with plans for the Mercedes regular to contest both the Gold Coast and Sandown sprint events alongside Supercars.

Habul won’t be the only driver campaigning a Scott Taylor Motorsport [STM] AMG though, with returning Australian Endurance Champion Max Twigg jumping back behind the wheel of the WM Waste machine for the Sprint rounds. 2018 team-mate Tony D’Alberto will then re-join Twigg for the Australian Endurance Championship events to defend their 2018 title, campaigning the car that Supercar team-mates Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup and Shane Van Gisbergen drove in this year’s 12 Hour, whilst Habul will be back in the #75 SunEnergy1 Racing AMG GT3 12 Hour entry which was in fact Twigg’s championship winning mount from 2018.

The third member of the Mercedes-AMG squad for the Australian Grand Prix is arguably the category’s most experienced campaigner – Eggleston Motorsport driver Peter Hackett, the Melbourne-local having made his AGP debut in 2010, a venue where he has a number of podium finishes to his name, although unlike Max Twigg (two wins in 2010), he is yet to grace the top step at Albert Park.

AGP always pulls a big field, but many go back into hiding afterwards.

A good sign that Twigg and Hackett are returning for the sprint and endurance series along with Habul for select rounds.

New category management this year so will have to see how AGT goes. Lot's of stories going around right now about unrest in the series, long-term manager gone, higher number of tyres per race weekend, range of things really. The word "cluster" being used regularly in regard to what has been happening.
Hopefully a case of a new category manager shaking things up a bit and making changes rather than any long-term problems.

The whole thing is now geared towards making Mr Manolios a lot of money.

More tyres, at a higher price - He's the Pirelli motorsport tyre distributor for Australia.

Introduces a 'Cup' class so he can sell a few Huracan Super Trofeos - He's the Lamborghini Sqaudra Corse distributor for Australia.

Will the people complaining about Tony Quinn last season be calling for his reinstatement?

I doubt it - but they might choose to simply walk away and spend their money somewhere else.

Umal is I think on the money re the source of the issues floating around the rumour mills just now. It may settle down, it may not but I suspect that if it doesn't, there are some who may simply give up on the idea of running in the series - maybe do the 12 hour and some races in Asia or something like that.

Well you can kiss the series goodbye then. I’ve had more then one previous competitor complain about entry costs and tire prices under the previous ownership-hence the previous entrants. Not to mention a bunch of ****ed off pro drivers who can’t compete anymore except in enduro cup.

Some people don’t learn do they??

8 champ class cars down from 13 in 2018 and 27 in 2016/17 is worrying seeing as though it’s supposed to be the series glamor event that previously has attracted massive grids of the latest and greatest cars.
