Its a shame its only looking like 17 cars, we still have some time til season start but I think weve almost exhausted the rumour mill.

Regardless of total car counts, you can't argue with 7 factory-backed AMG GT3's, 5 factory-backed R8 GT3's, 3 factory-backed M6 GT3's, a pair of very strong Red Bull supported Ferraris, and the Mclaren wildcard.

Thats hard to argue with, sure it would have been nice to see a few Porsches, Lamborghinis, a full season Mclaren entry, Honda etc, but that thought could easily wander into fantasy land, so I think what we are going to end up with is pretty good going!

I hope next year can bring more teams and more manufacturers. The transition to GT3 was announced quite late, for some teams it was tough to change plans or find finances to add a new programme. The Covid landscape doesn't help either.
It's still a shame there are not at least 20 cars, having '2' in front always seems better but I agree, it doesn't seem that there will be more teams/drivers this year.
I'm still looking forward to this season. GT3 cars aren't as fast but are still great to watch and it'll be exciting to see such high-profile drivers battling on track and not having to share a car. Single-driver format always puts a bigger impact on an individual driver which is always more exciting, especially as in 60minute races (such as ADAC GT) driver changes seem a bit pointless.

I'm glad to finally see Paffett officially back- even though we all new it was +90% probable.

But was quite surprised by Abrils name. Ok, is not surprising in a GT3/Haupt Racing context, but many sources, even those which first mentioned Hubert Haupt returning for a few rounds almost certainly said it will be Ghiotto. Unlucky guy again failing to get a GT3 seat?

40 minutes in during pre-season testing and we already have faster times in GT Masters - 1:36.867 by K. van der Linde compared to 1:38.193 in second qualy last year in GTM by Steijn Schothorst (fastest qualy time that weekend)

And I think there's potential for more. I understand it's very cold at the track which doesn't help in achieving super fast times and also the teams are probably sandbagging a bit.

Hopefully BOP won't be used too much and the racing is close enough not to need it. It gets too random at times. Hopefully different tyre compounds will be more key

Some Japanese team has shown their Mercedes with and without BoP recently. Pace difference was huge. Extra HP were noticeable every straight. With Michelin in DTM corners will be faster too. So, no super news here.

In 2019 Q1 hockenheim GTopen pole was 1.36.75, yesterday DTM test best time was 1.36.59... it's just about putting 2+2 together to understand why

We'll see how it looks like in the season but I think DTM's BOP gives chance for faster times than in ADAC GT.

Let alone the fact DTM has a very strong grid quality-wise, unlike ADAC GT which has a mix of professionals and amateurish drivers. Also, I prefer single driver format to ADAC GT. I enjoy watching ADAC GT but truth is driver changes in such short races is like an art for art's sake.

Do we really care if laptimes are 1:36.xx instead of1:38.xx?

I rather see 1:42.xx AND great racing.

Yes, hopefully DTM will provide great racing, I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Btw from Berger's words it's quite hard for me to judge if we can expect more entries or not. It's quite cryptic at the moment.
