    Two teams have announced they will make their apprereance in the newly created GT1 championship next season.

    Both teams will enter with two Aston Martin DBR9's. The FIA still has to approve the entry of Team Hexis AMR and Young Driver AMR but it is most likely they will appear on the list that will be confirmed in January.
    The team has proved itself already during the last seasons winning the FIA GT3 European Teams Championship in 2009 with an Aston Martin DBRS9.

    The FIA GT1 World Championship will debut in 2010 as a successor to the previous FIA GT Championship which featured the GT1 category as well as a GT2 category. GT2 cars will now compete in the FIA GT2 European Championship, a support series for the FIA GT1 World Championship.
     
  3. Thanks Bram for the link info. To be honest I thought it was going to be a bit dull as they dumbed down the series, but to hear that Aston Martin are back has really focused my interest. Can't wait untill May 2010 to watch them at Silvestone.

    Matech Competition are a Swiss sportscar race team and constructors of the Matech Ford GT. In 2010 the team sees themselves as a championship contender in the new GT1 World Championship.

    On YouTube and on their official website they have presented a movie called "Momentum". It shows the journey the Matech team have embarked upon as they prepare for the GT1 World Championship in 2010.

    Don't think 4WD is allowed in GT1. Even the Lambo has RWD in this serie
     
  17. in street version it is AWD. IF not allowed in a race series, they just modifiy the drive train for RWD and go racing........
     
  18. Well, this model is a novelty, and it is beautyfull isn´t it? But the rest of contenders are aswell, it will be a cool champ to follow next year.

    For some reason this car looks to be higher than his competitors. Could be optical though, maybe Xose still has some pics from Zolder that show the Nissan
