If there is one series I would really want to get more involved with its the European GT Endurance Series. Whether FIA GT1, ADAC GT Masters or the Blancpain Enduros. The vehicle line up is incredible, you got:
- Mercedes-Benz SLS
- BMW Z4
- Audi R8
- McLaren MP4-12C
- Lambourghini Gallardo
- Ferrari 458
- Porsche 911
- Aston Martin DB9
- Ford GT
Though there are only a handful of races on the calendar for each series, there’s plenty of potential to squeeze in a few F1 events and DTM if I were to end up in Europe in the near future. Check it out:

Europeans are spoiled for choice with fantastic racing opportunities, our equivalent of the Rolex Grand-Am series is stuck in the stone age in comparison. Of course gives me something to look forward to marshal in the future, if I suddenly get a job in Europe.
In this recession its highly unlikely, but one can dream.
