S5000 First Race, Symmons Plains(Spoilers)

the first race of the new season was a bore-fest, why did they have to do 25 Laps?

Did you want more or less?  I thought it was a good SLAM-BAM-JAM sprint race.  There were nine cars and it was an undercard to TCR Australia.  Slade and Golding were propping this event up and drawing Supercars fans in.

If you dislike this formula, as the head of the V8 Central Fantasy League, I hereby invite you over to the world's most greatest annual contest.

Feel free to join and match wits with some of the greatest minds in motorsport.  Your dreams may never come true, but your fantasies will never disappoint you.

Issue is the numbers are low and seemingly getting smaller.The cars are good.There are some good drivers in there although the driving standards at Bathurst were abysmal and a total embarrassment.
How can low numbers like this be acceptable to be on the program at Albert Park?Needs to be double these numbers.

My understanding is that GRM have taken delivery of a total of 18 chassis and can quickly fully finish the cars as needed.

It seems that the plan was pre-Covid, to fill up more cars with international drivers, both has-beens and younger drivers from the less powerful classes in Europe/UK, America, North and South plus Asia. The teams are equipping themselves to fettle extra cars with sponsored drivers.

If chassis are ordered in batches, then there will need to be a lot more interest to get the field past 18.
Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.

25 laps of Symmons is only a 20 minute race in these.
