    Matt gets some decent screen time in the latest video from Nismo.TV's 24hrs of Spa review :)

    Caruso has been ruled out of the Bathurst 12hr after his rating went up. I hope that opens the door for Matt to have a steer.

    Honestly I'll be shocked if Matt's not in the car next year, for me the Aus GT entries pretty much confirms it.

    Anyway here's a happy snap at Phillip Island today :)

    They can only get better because last year's car was a total pile of junk, they'll inevitably receive some boost in BOP, but the car's front end aero was very poor, according to Mint, it was costing them 1.5 seconds per lap. Hell at Spa they were losing over 2 seconds in the middle sector alone.

    So if the higher ups have stopped being stubborn and put on a new front end for this season (in the promo pics so far they have the VLN spec bumper) the GT-R should be very competitve this season.

    Blancpain is known for exaggeration in their BOP approach. If a car is well off the pace one year, expect it to be very competitive next year, and vice versa.

    To say I am pumped and cannot wait for the 27th July to get here is as bigger an understatement as has ever crossed a human's lips. All booked all paid and at what I think and most importantly the handbrake agrees a decent price for what will be a once in a lifetime experience. To watch a mate and experience what is one of the motor racing's greatest events at a place such as Spa in priceless. Let the countdown continue.....
