GT will change in 2016

Post by Biggsy tv on Fri 27 Sep 2013 - 16:05

The principles of the convergence between the current GTE cars (Le Mans) and the FIA GT3 have been commonly defined by the FIA and ACO and agreed by all the GT manufacturers. The aim is to present the new GT Technical Regulations, based on new categories (GT+ and GT), at the WMSC in June 2014 for implementation in 2016.

GT cars have just been getting slower and slower over the past few decades/

GTE used to be GT2, and GT1 used to be GT2. Now GT3's becoming GTE?

Makes sense, as GT1 is gone (R.I.P.) and referring to the survivors as GT2 and GT3 makes them seem somehow inferior.

It makes sense, as GTE is only for Factory teams and extremely rich people. Others have to settle for GT3 cars. This way the fields get bigger. It's a win win.

But agreed, the cars getting slower is a bummer. That also means that the GT classes in USCR are gonna need a rehaul

Cars getting slower... logical explanation: speed costs money and the economy sucks globally.

That wasn't my point.

I'm not critisising the decision, it's great, but GT cars have been slowed over the years when compared to the prototypes.
