I think the best way is to split the grid but have joint races at tracks that are longer/bigger i.e Spa, Silverstone etc.

I don't think there'll be an even split.If you split fields you might be looking at around 14 cars in the supposedly headlining GT3 race.

14 cars in GT3 doesn't sound too bad. Enough for a separate race, IMHO...

By the time the season comes around I doubt they'll actually hit the capacity limits at most tracks. There always seems to be dropouts for one reason or another.

How about everyone can run for qualifying, or have qualifying heats, or something? This is, of course, assuming capacity grids are exceeded.

Hard sell for paydrivers, not knowing if you're gonna get your money's worth or not...

I agree, if I was paying to drive then I got knocked out before the race is be pretty angry.

That or I'd be put off from entering at all.

My vote is for split GT3 / GT4 races

Maybe even allow GT Cup cars in although there isn't really many of those in the UK

Either wAy, it's not a bad problem having too many cars than too few

You could also do a consolation round for the guys that are out in qualifying, I guess. Top 10 GT3 and GT4 get to the A-final, rest do the B-final. Needs a points system that runs all the way through A and to at least some point into B.

Think it will be a strong pairing. Definitely in the fight for wins, potentially with good luck in the fight for the title.

The Huracan proved pretty solid in 2016.

On an unrelated note, I fine it pretty curious how Audi barely ever feature in BGT

I was expecting more than just one announcement but I guess it's another case of a twitter account hyping things up far too much. In essence British GT seem to think that the announcement of one ex touring car driver is more important than all of the previous gt3 announcements put together.

I'm also slightly surprised that the livery seems to be predominantly made up of Tordoff's sponsors. I thought the whole point of having an Am driver was that they bring a large part of the sponsorship/ money.

Tordoff brings A LOT of sponsorship and money, probably more so than Liam Griffin.
