Decided to make separate thread for this for clarification, instead of spamming to the previous "Survey" thread

 

Porsche Supercup just announced their 2024 calendar (on Instagram...) so I've added it to the ones already announced and tidied the list:

 

Bahrain - FIA Formula 2 RD1, FIA Formula 3 RD1, Porsche Carrera Cup ME RD5 (3)

Saudi Arabia - FIA Formula 2 RD2, Porsche Carrera Cup ME RD6 (2)

Australia - FIA Formula 2 RD3, FIA Formula 3 RD2 (2)

Japan -

China - Porsche Carrera Cup Asia RD1 (1)

Miami -

Imola - FIA Formula 2 RD4, FIA Formula 3 RD3, Porsche Supercup RD1 (3)

Monaco - FIA Formula 2 RD5, FIA Formula 3 RD4, Porsche Supercup RD2 (3)

Canada - Ferrari Challenge North America RD3 (1)

Spain - FIA Formula 2 RD6, FIA Formula 3 RD5 (2)

Austria - FIA Formula 2 RD7, FIA Formula 3 RD6, Porsche Supercup RD3 (3)

United Kingdom - FIA Formula 2 RD8, FIA Formula 3 RD7, Porsche Supercup RD4 (3)

Hungary - FIA Formula 2 RD9, FIA Formula 3 RD8, Porsche Supercup RD5 (3)

Belgium - FIA Formula 2 RD10, FIA Formula 3 RD9, Porsche Supercup RD6 (3)

Netherlands - Porsche Supercup RD7 (1)

Monza - FIA Formula 2 RD11, FIA Formula 3 RD10, Porsche Supercup RD8 (3)

Azerbaijan - FIA Formula 2 RD12 (1)

Singapore - Porsche Carrera Cup Asia RD6 (1)

COTA -

Brazil -

Las Vegas -

Qatar - FIA Formula 2 RD13 (1)

Abu Dhabi - FIA Formula 2 RD14 (1)

 

So far, all of the supports are 100% spec series then

 

Still to be added:

F1 Academy calendar not yet released

FREC calendar not yet released (if any make it here)

V8 Supercars calendar not yet released but expected to return for Melbourne - no Singapore, but hope for 2025.

Super Formula at Suzuka for the first time is still a possibility

Miami aims for 2 support series apparently (IMSA Porsche calendar not yet released)

Thailand Super Series probably at Singapore again

Other "guest series" calendars still TBA

I'd love to see more local series support F1. Porsche Supercup got stale about 20 years ago.

Aussie Supercars proves that you can have a high profile series that's not under the FOM umbrella supporting F1. We need more of it. I want a BTCC race on the Sunday morning of the British GP again.

Yeah you could get Asian Le Mans for Singapore, NASCAR Canada for Montreal, Stock Car Brasil for Interlagos etc

(And of course more unrealistic but still doable like Super GT for Suzuka, Indycar or Indy Lights for Miami etc)

They had an Asian supercar series at Singapore 2023. It had the lowest billing but was surprisingly enjoyable.

(Lamborghini, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Audi, maybe more.)

 

Loud and mix of sounds and shapes. Way more interesting than Porsche Cup.

Yes that is the Thailand Super Series running GT3s and GT4s, with Singapore being non-championship round as was the case in 2022

In 2023, I believe these are the only non-spec support appearances:

Australia - V8 Supercars
Singapore - Thailand Super Series
Japan - BMW & Mini Racing (spec cars inside classes I think, but different models in sub classes)
COTA - Masters Historic F1 Racing Legends USA, Masters Formula Atlantic Plus (but they're historics)
Mexico - GTM Mexico (or are those tubeframe spec cars? it's hard to tell lol)
 
2022 had at least Nissan Sentra Cup at Canada, which had spec cars for Sentra but also another class for Micras, so technically not spec series. And COTA had historic Masters Endurance Legends and whatnot
 
So there are some non-spec series couple of times a year but it's not much

So if F1 Academy is supposed to support F1 next year, where can they squeeze in, especially if the keep their 3-race format? At least European rounds are already full, apart from Zandvoort and Barcelona. And doing many flyaway races is so expensive it would lead to the similar fate as W Series.

I look forward to a month before the 2024 USGP, when COTA finally tells us who the support series will be. Doesn't really matter much though, I guess, because they won't have much.

But presumably there's a lot more money behind F1 Academy?

Montreal also typically has Canadian F1600 as a support race. It isn't spec.

Oh that's right! It can have both different engines and chassis, only tires are spec

They could easily fit in their package into those Euro F2-F3-PS weekends if they had Races 1 and 2 on Friday + Race 3 on Saturday, or Race 1 on Friday and Races 2 and 3 on Saturday.

 

Or if F1 decreased that famously empty bit of space between final support race and Grand Prix on Sunday, but we know they won't bother with that sadly

 

Anyway... other than Zandvoort and Barcelona, Monaco also has more free space in timetable since there are some support race sessions also on Thursday

Like I predicted, only Barcelona and Zandvoort had enough room to support F1 Academy in Europe. 3 races in Islamic countries in 2024 calendar. Interesting.
 
Round F1 race Circuit Date
1 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix Jeddah Corniche Circuit Mar 7-9
2 Miami Grand Prix Miami International Autodrome May 3-5
3 Spanish Grand Prix Circuit de Catalunya Jun 21-23
4 Dutch Grand Prix Zandvoort Aug 23-25
5 Singapore Grand Prix Singapore Sep 20-22
6 Qatar Grand Prix Losail International Circuit Nov 29-Dec 1
7 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Yas Marina Dec 6-8

Their last race is Sept 15th in Nashville and COTA is Oct 20th.

Nice too see them in Miami - it would be great if that race was hyped up on National news here in the States and broadcasted live on the tele.

While I'd love to see that, I'm pretty sure the Captain has no desire for IndyCar to be F1's support series, and from what I hear, there's no love lost between him and COTA, either. They should add a Mexico race before another US race. TBF they've been working on that.

Modern Indycar is scared of running during the NFL season for some stupid reason

 

TBH Miami GP F1/Indycar would make more sense, but only if F1 was willing to modify their Saturday schedule even a little to accommodate earlier qualifying and hence making the ICS race Saturday headline

 

Anyway, of course it won't happen

That calendar is beyond awful, giant gaps between events just like in F2 2021

This is silly. They are 2 completely different series in my eyes and people need to get over the comparisons and move on. A weekend with IC and F1 would be excellent and one that could make for lots of fun with fans.

A series encouraging women to go into racing having nearly half its rounds in the Middle East feels like double the sportswashing grossness.

Don't worry, their sessions will likely be about 6 hours apart from F1, so the "crowds" don't have to see them

But yeah...

Great idea. The BTCC for the British Grand Prix and the reverse car driving at Zandvoort should return together with the caravan race.

it's not about encouraging women into racing. It's about keeping their wolves from the door. 

Give me the same amount of money spent on F1 Academy and I could produce better results in a matter of months.

 

Yeah, nah.

Limits on track time? You mean they have caused all that disruption in Vegas, and they are limited to how much they can use the track?

There's absolutely no upside for F1 to host IndyCar. Also, IndyCar's viewing figures are quite low and they can't afford to lose any to other more popular sporting entities.

Yes, yes.

F1 are spending 6,000,000 or thereabouts per year on F1 Academy which has limited reach. If you think subsidising 15 or so drivers is better than literally being able to buy 2000 Cadet karts then I don't know what to say. I could think of a LOT of things to help grassroots Motorsport and female participation. 

F1 Academy is about keeping DEI wolves from the door. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs a reality check on how motorsport works.

 

Yeah, nah.

 

For starters, I'm pretty sure all the women of the Academy wouldn't completely lose their minds over being redirected by their physio to make sure that they didn't break weigh-in rules...

I think it’s more likely that the new F1 fans would also start watching Indycar than the existing Indycar fans abandoning it for F1.

There’s probably more overlap in interest than with Indycar and NASCAR. That was the problem noted at Indy at the joint events lately. The Indycar fans would leave and the nascar fans would arrive once Indycar were done on track and vice versa.

Anyway, it would be very cool, even if extremely unlikely.

F1 Academy is “assisted “ by the family of Amna and Hamda.
Hence the profile in the Middle East. But the way things are going out there…. Well, y’all know that these days plans can turn on a dime.

This is absolutely the case.
All my DTS F1 friends that I introduced to Indycar say THIS is the series they want more of. That last race in Laguna, although a bit of a joke for us, had folks in my local pub going mental.

There was a series of days that Sky F1 had replayed all the hour long race highlights. It was staple viewing for these Indycar newbies. I still get asked why no more races after Sept ?


I told them that it clashes with the Hand Egg World Series.

The only thing that is lacking IndyCar, is a proper good looking chassis. Ever since the reunification, the chassis being used arent amongst the prettiest in the world. The old late 90s Reynard and Lola chassis were fantastic looking. But most certainly since the DW chassis, I cant call an IndyCar a pretty car. No matter the (sometimes) iconic liveries that were plastered on it, like a Menards, Penske/Marlboro derivative or Target one, none really stood out.

Indycar and F1 are not that far off from ratings in the States - some of that could be based on the times F1 races are broadcasted live, but they are still not that far off. 

 

I think Indy and F1 fans are closer. There is the exception of the oval-centric, engine up front fans in Indycar who would look at any collaboration as a negative and would refuse playing second fiddle to anyone - including NASCAR. But their sport and the world is passing them by so in reality, I think we can just ignor that demographic and move on. They key would be Penske and he's already killing traditions in the effort to reduce costs. Bundling with available calendar space on events like COTA would IMO, bring more F1 fans into the fold. As far as I am concerned - that is where they should be aiming because the product in the States is not growing at a rate to augment the series - that's a historical trend.

 

But I digress - don't want to go to off course here.

I’ve just had a wild idea. A race of two worlds type support race for the Grand Prix at COTA. Indycar and F2 in the same race. It could be a non-points event for both sides. They should be fairly closely matched.

Supercars at Melbourne deal looks like formality, but they are likely to be bumped out of their own pitlane + no pit stops
 
Chinese Formula 4 will support the Chinese GP, apparently
 
IMSA Porsche Cup wants to continue with F1 support next year as everyone seemingly loves it if you ignore the lack of space
 
No FREC at any of the GPs next year (not that it was really expected after the last time was in 2022)

Supercars at Melbourne deal looks like formality, but they are likely to be bumped out of their own pitlane + no pit stops

 

 

Some concessions

“We are very close [to finalising pit arrangements],” he told Speedcafe.
 
“We’re going back and forward, and I think we found a way to keep them in the infield, which is really important. The guys are working through that now – guys that have got far more idea about this than me – what I’ve been impressed with is their commitment to find a solution that works for everyone. I think it’s pretty close to being finalised.”
 
A location somewhere in the action of Albert Park’s infield is important for logistical reasons, noting Supercars teams still need access to the secondary pit lane in case they would need to make running repairs, and for access for fans/corporate guests. Details are likely to firm up this week, following the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, which AGPC also promotes.
 
“What I would say is, there were options everywhere,” added Auld.
 
“We’re talking about all these different options about how we make it work, and working then the Supercars team. I think we’ve landed on something that’s going to work for everyone; we had to put that on hold for a while we got this [MotoGP] event away. I’m pretty sure [this] week, we’ll get back on to that and just try and lock that away.”

I was about to say that there is no room (even though there is actually if F1 was willing to not mandate such big gaps between support sessions and their sessions) but then I remembered that British GP already wanted to move towards the Australian GP model, ie four-day weekend

So it could've been done. But money (and political reasons) directed them to Middle East

Supercars have sent around their 2024 calendar today by email. Confirms the presence of Supercars at the Australian Grand Prix.

 

It also plops Bathurst very neatly between Singapore and COTA. Someone needs to drop a nudge and a wink to the F1 drivers...

Indeed. And Supercars is 4x Sprints again (without pit stops)

Super Formula @ Suzuka now looking unlikely, sadly.

Supercars showing up at Qatar could be fun. I'm sure F1 themselves wouldn't mind the big boppers going out to clear the dust and test tyres against the kerbs first.
