Is it just me or the FIA GT Nations cup makes no sense?

    I was watching the FIA GT Nations Cup Bahrain race for a few minutes, and it just makes no sense at all:


    "Now Russia and Turkey are fighting for second place, while France is serving a drive through and Great Britain has pulled away in the lead, and Thailand is under investigation for that incident at turn 1."

    That may sound like fun to some casual viewer that doesn't know any drivers, but to me it just sounds weird.
    Not to mention, why is GB represented by a Ferrari if there are several British GT3 cars out there?

    Seriously, what's the point of this race?

    Haha, I also wondered why the german team is driving a Ferrari. Ofc not every nation has a manufacturer that is into GT3 but c'mon..Germany..Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche...even Lambo a little bit. But they chose a Ferrari. Even Japan didn't go with Godzilla?? No Aston or Bentley for GB?? WTF?? So basically only Italy got it right. x)

    Did anyone think a "Nations Cup" motorsport race would make any sense (especially without any sort of national ladder system)? It's such a globalised sport nowdays, manufacturers, teams and drivers are often internationally based - national "rivalry" doesn't make sense. This merely exists as an attempt to draw viewers, I presume.

    To be honest it's abit like UEFA Nations League in football, a waste of time.

    I don't mind some national pride or competition in racing, but the FIA didn't even try to make it worthwhile.

    Seems they created it to move away the amateur drivers from Macau, because of the risk that track represents.

    The reason why Germany, Great Britain and Japan were driving Italian cars is because of the teams running those cars.

    This is a new competition, so in order that there were a decent number of entries, SRO asked many teams from the Blancpain series for help. So you have AF Corse running the teams of UK and Japan. And you can't ask the official Ferrari team to run cars from other brands. Germany is another example: the team is even German, but because Renaldi is used to the 488, there you go. Germans using the italian car.

    Matching the drivers and the car nationality is something I would work more, because it could make the race much more attractive. I understand that to make it work, you have to be practical. But at least don't do things like getting the UK team (Garage 59) that even drives an UK car (650) to compite for Sweden. :rolleyes: And try to bring those teams that use a car from their own nationality, like Rowe (Germany, BMW). And also try that the nation matches with the car used, like GT Sport Motul (UK but it uses the Nissan) for Japan.

    I really like the idea and I hope they work on this last bit.

    Yeah, I was thinking that too, at least have some teams/car match the nationality. There's so many matches for the UK especially, with TF Sport and Aston Martin, Garage 59 and McLaren (as mentioned above), Bentley M-Sport, and well, Bentley. Then there's Team Parker Racing and the Bentley, Optimum Motorsport and the Aston, Beechdean AMR and Aston, Balfe Motorsport and McLaren, Jetstream Motorsport and Aston, Ultimate Speed and Aston and the list goes on. Even with that, having teams from the nationality at least would be good, as it was weird to see RAM Racing, a British team, carry Turkey to victory to beat their home country, the UK.

    However, it is the first year of the Nations Cup, and I quite like the idea of it. Hopefully it will improve over time.
