Two of the 12 teams competing in this year's FIA GT1 World Championship seem certain not to return.
The race-winning Matech Racing Ford squad will definitely not race next year under its current ownership and has been put on the market. Meanwhile, the Hegersport Maserati squad, sister team to champion Vitaphone Racing, is also only "30 percent likely" to race on, according to team boss Altfrid Heger.
Matech boss Martin Bartek has put the racing arm of his operation up for sale as a result of what team manager Thomas Mutsch called "sponsorship difficulties."
Bartek intends to continue Matech Concepts, which developed the Ford GT.
