    Yeah I think with GT2 probably slower overall on most tracks it's going to get very confusing. If I had my way GT500/DTM/Class One would be GT1, GTE/LM would be GT2, GT3 would stay as it is, GT2 would be GT4, GT4 would then become GT5.

    Oviously the initial transitional phase would be confusing but in the end it'll all alot easier to understand.

    And as a random thought they should have an invitational class of a small numberof cars at Le Mans, every year they invite a different class to compete against the usual grid, so one year they could have DPi, the next GT500, then GT3 and so on, obviously there aren't too many options and it would repeat itself fairly often but it would just be cool to do.

    well yer see, this wouldn't be happening if FIA didn't start shifting classes around like legos. GT1 started in BPR, then moved to FIA GT, then moved into another championship, then another, then maybe another one. I'm surprised GTE hasn't been swapped around as much as GT2, GT1, or GT3.

    GT3 has been pretty well accepted by many different GT championships around the world. So it's done something right.
    Maybe ACO and IMSA have kept a tight leash on the GTE/GTLM regs, thereby making it super exclusive. Who knows?

    that's prolly why limited marques are in GTE, because it's super inclusive... maybe.. I really don't know.

    I don't think GTE is all that inclusive. It's just that certain manufacturers think it's more viable to build for GT3 rather than GTE because they can sell more cars, and have a further global reach. GTE has 3 series they can race in; IMSA, WEC, and ELMS. GT3 meanwhile, has a more global reach, especially since SRO has taken European, American, and Asian GT series under it's wing. So, it makes more sense to build for that instead of GTE, even to the point where Ferrari and Aston Martin build cars that can be used for both GTE and GT3.

    Personally, I think the FIA and SRO need to come together and come up with a single set of regulations so that manufactures won't have to choose between one or the other, or spend the money so they cars can do both. It'll save money for everyone involved, and we could even see more manufacturers in WEC, and we all know they desperately need that.

    in my opinion WEC's big ticket has always been and always will be the premier class of Prototype. BUT right now LMP1 is a bit of a joke with Toyota being the only one with a hybrid and basically being allowed to take the wins them selves, since every time the Privateers start to catch up and would pose a threat to them they are BOPed further back

    its exactly why i refuse to watch a WEC race other than le mans because there is a great feeling of the races essentially being rigged in favor of Toyota

    and until they get that problem fixed i think they will continue to sink and die

    GT1 essentially stayed in the same championship throughout. BPR was given the FIA GT name for 1997, and then FIA GT was reduced to FIA GT1 for 2010.

    so all that changed was regulations and restrictions?

    Yeah, but the 'GT1' name stayed in the same championship. And after 1999 their were no major regulation changes (and GT2 in 1998 became GT1 for 1999).
