"
For me, they are two different Teams.


Yeah "las moras Racing and equipe verschuur" is the banner name

Like how K Pax and Flying Lizards work together on the PWC McLaren programme

To clarify that bit, it is indeed a technical partnership with Equipe Verschuur running the cars. Nothing special there, as V8 Racing ran the Las Moras Camaros in the past. For the championship they will be different teams. Look at it like the RJN and NISMO entries in Blancpain this season.

For GP34 by GEMO Motorsport and Race Perfomance. They have shown interest by saying they have seats available for both series. Nothing more, no entry forms whatsoever.

Allied-Racing with Jan Kasperlik and Tim Stupple in one car. Second car less likely at the moment.

WooW, it looks like that the Northern GT4 is exploding now. Does this mean that GT4 is becoming to be the new GT3?

Yes, that's been apparent for a while.

Exact quote: "I think a GT3 car needs professional teams, a good combination of really good am drivers and pro drivers. Cost-wise, it was always expensive to race. I think GT4 will be the new GT3."

To be honest I believe this statement was more about the level of GT4 and not so much the costs. In 2006 GT3 was started "to provide competition for more amateur racers in closer to production cars".

This is what GT4 is nowadays, whereas GT3 is nowhere near that anymore.

GT3 and GT4 should be renamed GTR and GTS.

You know, for Stephane Ratel.

GT3 has become GT1 levels of commitment and prices. Again, what was the reason the GT1 died? Oh yeah, costs ...

GT1 was a development class that encouraged factory teams though. GT3s is a BoP Class that encourages private teams. Whilst the costs of GT3 are huge, they aren't up at GT1 class levels.

Details to follow later, but 30 cars for the season opener at Misano should be possible.
