·Wheel base is 30 mm longer than the M6GT3.
·The engine is a new design 3981cc V8 twin turbo.
·New wheel, Very very cool!
·Mirror, Cool!
·Block carbon on the rear diffuser, Very Cool!
·Tire size is same as Z4GT3. The front tire size is smaller than the M6.
·Sachs carbon clutch!
·I'd like to go to see Le Mans 24 Hours next year.

Title: M4GT4!
I wrote about M4GT4 a few times on my blog.
It is the first show off at official places.
This is the new category of FIA GT4 vehicles that will run all over the world from next year.
This is a new category to replace GT3 mainly in Europe because the recent GT3 is expensive and too high speed.
There are many normal parts in GT4 than GT3.
It is characterized by the long life cycle of each parts.
There are many 20 million yen or so in other manufacturers.
However, this M4 GT4's price is probably under 20 million yen.
It seems that participating vehicles will increase.
In Japan there is a class that can participate by GT4 in Super Taikyu series.
Although the engine is almost normal, braking and turning are unbelievably excellence as the body is lighter and high rigid.
This is the first machine I would like to run in Japan.

@Japanese Samurai

Is that the GTE car is much more longer than the GT3 car???

If the GTE car length is same as GT3 car. Then if BMW introduced the M8 GT3 in the future. Then that would be the problem for entering Sugo race in the future.

In my opinion, I think M8 GTE Full length is same as the Lexus LC500 GT500 machine

Basically, Honda's fouled up the transfer of data between programs. Not surprising.

Super GT counts for a whopping 15 out of the requisite 40 points towards an FIA Super License now. Theoretically, a driver can win the GT500 and Super Formula titles and now get 35 out of 40 points in one go before heading to the European ladder.

Also, hi, I've had to take a bit of personal time away, but I'm back now. -_-

Good to see you back RJ

It's nice that the FIA is putting more importance on the series by giving it those points towards the Super Licence. Given the speed of the GT500s theoretically it's good practice if a driver is looking at an LMP ride

LMP2 worth more than SGT/DTM? I beg to differ!

Also good to have ya back, RJ.

Why would gt5000 drivers want to step down into F1?

Some young drivers may be in Super Formula as well, and linked to Honda who are in F1.

If you were a young gun linked with Honda and they were looking at pushing you into a F1 seat surely you'd be wanting to stay in SGT as you'd have a chance of a car that finishes the race
