Pleased to see that the FIA GT1 from Abu Dhabi today will be televised live, at 3 pm today on Bloomberg (Sky channel 502). Defintely worth watching for racing, no need to wait for 10 hours to see an overtake, as its a sprint race with a two hour format.

Anybody else watching?

Brilliant battle at the end there, that's what motor racing is about - two drivers engaged in an immense battle for the lead.

The pitlane incident was kind of funny, talk about having to multi-task, doing up your seatbelt, trying to concentrate on the road and fighting of a Ford GT that's bashing you!

Will defintely be watching the race, this is exciting sportscar racing.

Proof that sportscar races don't need to last for 10 years, its unnecessary.

but this is sportscar racing and actually it's proof of the opposite, as thers's going to be no cars next year(thats 4 nissans who are pulling out to do lmp2 in the lms, the ford's will be out as with the vettes and astons on age and lambo are going to do something else as well.

Instead SRO invented a gt3 endurance series to try and get people to watch and teams to come back in.

Well there were concerns over this years GT1 grid, but 20 cars still lined up. There is plenty of time from now until next year to sort out the 2011 grid.

FIA GT1 has such amazing racing, that's my point. It's like BTCC only with bigger and faster cars. Interlagos last year, for example, it was an amazing show.

it was good race.

Winkelhock/Basseng win shame on the Aston having problems right near the end and also the Marc VDS Ford GT having problems in there stop. it was a shame. clearly a strong car.


I like the GT1 series it has good race but!!!!! it lacks something to make it a great series. it might just need new cars or new style of races but i don't know it does lack something.

I miss the old spa 24 with GT1's it was always a great event but now it has GT2, GT3 and GT4 but i think is better but spa 24 2005 aston martin v vitaphone in the pouring rain.....epic.

Was a good race yesterday, first time i've watched one live since the inception of the World Championship, it's strange that Bloomberg have picked up the series, but great for us all the same. Will have to watch the main race this evening as out today. Same with Superstars

Winkelhock/Basseng were just too fast plus the Pit stop was just as fast.

it was good race. i enjoyed it. Not sure if Zolder is the right track for GT1 both races cause huge pile up into turn one but i like the track.

all in all good races.

FIA GT1 needs more cars, but with the cars it does have, the action is simply brilliant. I'm not sure how the racing is so good, but the battles for position are frequent and immediate. Because the races are only an hour long, there is no hanging about - the drivers have to make it happen quickly.

Unlucky for Westbrook and Dumbreck when they dominated until the pitstops. Think it's the first time today the field managed to do the opening lap without a big crash. Since i've found this series on Bloomberg i've quite enjoyed watching it, bit like touring cars in exotic machinery with all the bumping and rubbing.

It was good race. i would of been happy either way if westbrook or luhr won.

alot of teams not happy with the cost of it and the crash....i heard it was very expensive.

saw the 2nd FIA GT3 race Great result for Audi dispite the FIA performance balancing killing the Audi! the SLS looks sweet. FIA GT3 over taking FIA GT1 much better cars more car, its the way forward.

Well great move by Hohenadel to get the lead and then brilliantly back up by the team with that stop!

More big contact in the first few turns....

Looks like the lambo had suspension break. saw the sparks......??

it was good race.

They still don't seem to be able to get through lap 1 without contact and cars too damaged to continue. Some good racing going on though, first car race i've seen from Sachsenring. The Winkelhock Lambo looked like a wheel nut might have come off just before the problem occured, but i guess we'll have to wait and see if the team say.

i have no idea how they are combine classes.

I think GT2/GT3 should be the main GT class or classes! GT1 is good but lacks cars? Aston martin is over 6years old! Corvette must be longer?
