    THIS WEEK
    So we’re back again for the first two rounds of the TNGTC’s new season live from the Panorama Mountain in Australia, where we find the streets of the Bathurst circuit. With the Pre-Season testing phase over, it’s now time to get back to racing on a circuit that delivered a great show last year in the wet. With the new driver and car pairings, who’s your money on for the two wins on Thursday? Which team will start their season in the best way? And which driver will come out of the event in the championship lead? All will be seen on Thursday. Game on!

    THE CIRCUIT
    The Mount Panorama Bathurst circuit is a classic location for racing, most famous for the Bathurst 1000 race in the V8 Supercars championship. Here is a map and some quick facts about the circuit!

    PRESS CONFERENCE
    Q: After testing your car, are you confident?
    A: Quietly confident, knowing there are a lot of guys using the same car is daunting for sure but I'm confident we're in the running.
    Q: How ready are you for the first event of the season?
    A: Fairly ready I'd say, as far as I know I'm fastest on Qualifying pace and I'm always ready for an overtake so I can't wait!
    Q: What are the strengths and weaknesses of your car?
    A: Strengths - Corner speed, downforce.
    Weakness - Maximum speed.
    Q: What result are you aiming for this week?
    A: Obviously you always aim for a win but realistically I want a double podium this week as I'm missing Brno.

    This is the Season Three Stewards’ Office for the Thursday Night GT Championship. If you wish to report an incident or activity, drivers must have video footage of the incident, and should provide onboard footage and outside footage of each driver involved to give the stewards the best insight possible. If you do not have video footage, your enquiry will not be reviewed. Drivers will have one post to explain their side of the story; if drivers begin to argue, they will be sanctioned.

    Hi Guys, not sure if this is the right place to post. I'm from South Africa, we're a couple of guys looking to commit to a more serious league, do you guys still have spots available for your league?

    Kind regards,

    Louis

    Hi guys, we have only one permanent space left in the league as you can see from the Teams and Drivers above, however, you can sign up as a reserve for when permanent drivers cannot race. I know for a fact that one space will be available for rounds two and three (Thursday 21st July) at Brno.

    All you have to do is sign up with:

    Driver Name:
    PSN ID:
    Wheel / Pad:
    Car (See rules and regulations for permitted cars):

    Whichever one of you becomes the permanent driver, you will join Bold Racing Team.
