2019 - A year on Motorsport

    It is a shame, however Jaguar's are no longer run anywhere, as the team than ran them, Emil Frey, are finished with the car, and have moved onto Lamborghini for the new season. As for Nissan, well they've pulled factory support, so there's not many teams at all running them now, with one of the biggest teams, RJN, switching to Honda for this year instead. And I guess Lamborghini simply isn't as big there for GT3, as there's roughly 11 Lamborghini's already confirmed for the new Blancpain Endurance season!

    Also, there are more teams that have said they plan to join the series later this season, and I'm sure there will be more every year. This is the first ever season, and yesterday was the first race, for Blancpain GTWC America.

    Just came back from a long and rather cold and windy day at COTA. Despite the weather, it was awesome. Great racing to be had from the GT4s and GT3s right up to the finish line. We got to get very close to the cars before the race as they had an open paddock and a pit walk for everyone, for sure the highlight of the day!

    Now - there were no Lambos or R8s, so bear that in mind - but the story of the race weekend was the very dominant, new for 2019 Bentley. This thing is quick. It is the loudest, throatiest machine on the grid. And it looks amazing. Pretty much everyone there fell in love with the thing. I predict this will be everyone’s favorite car when we get it in ACC!

    A couple of pictures from the grid walk. My son with the very competitive team from the number 3 Bentley. Fantastic day out

    You can always drag the photos here as an alternative. However, I guess it was an awesome experience ;)

    The Bentley was always my favourite :p I'm shocked that you'd say it's louder than the Porsche, as I assumed that would be loudest. Also, which V8 would you say sounds better? AMG or Bentley?

    Fixed the images for you, they're in the spoiler!
    That Bentley is quite a sharp looking car, nice to hear it's as fast as it looks!

    The new Bentley sounds like an absolute beast. It is way louder than the Porsche which is actually noticeably on the quiet side (although it looks very pretty indeed). It's quite close between the Bentley and the AMG, but I do think the Bentley is louder.

    Also -having another go at attaching some pictures, this time not from my iPad! Last picture is of my son (first ever race!) with Rodrigo Baptista and Maxime Soulet, Bentley drivers :)

    Now that the entry list for the 2019 Blancpain season (Endurance + World Challenge Europe, to be exact) has been published, what do you think?

    Though I'm happy to see a few more cars in the Sprint Cup/WC EU, I have to say I'm very disappointed that the field has become even more homogeneous.
    The same seems to be true for Endurance, but to a lesser extent.

    Will there really be no Nissans around at all? :(
