    Please explain different cars

    Hello everyone.

    I have only been involved in car racing since being introduced to another well known Sim and Project Cars. I never thought I'd enjoy car racing, as being in the elderly bracket, and during all the years that have passed me by, cars have never interested me. Now, after getting involved in these two Sims, what a mistake I have made.

    However, I'm at the learning stage, and trying to learn as fast as possible.

    Can someone tell me please what is a LMP 1 or 2 car mean and look like. The same for GT4 and GT3. Any help is really appreciated.

    Regards,
    Jim.

    In brief, but you can google full regs if you want.

    LMP1 full on prototypes with trick engines
    LMP2 prototypes with production engines
    GT3 full on race cars
    GT4 more like production cars

    The differences mostly pertain to race-spec homologation requirements (horsepower, weight, what types of modifications are allowed, etc.) to ensure balanced competition within each class.
