SP9 was introduced only last year for GT3 cars. SP7 and SP8 were slowed down to be on a similar level to SP9.

Thanks Dead-Eye. I'm really looking forward to see VW Scirocco on the Ring for the 2010 version of the 24 Hour Race. For a hatchback, it packs a vehement punch. I think VW will send a 3-team strong pack of Sciroccos for the 2010 24 Hour of Nurburgring and they will run in the AT Class as they did in 2009.

What's the AT-class?

I raced against the Sciroccos in SP3T last year, and wonders if they will be back in that class.

I think Paramattza Power is refering to the natural gas driven Sciroccos in the AT class for Turbocharged cars running on Alternative fuels.

Jürgen Alzen Motorsport is going to sit out the 2010 VLN-season. Hankook sponsorship contract ran out and he's not happy with the SP7/8 vs GT3 situation.
They might still run in the 24.

RCN (= VLN's little brother) and the Spezial Tourenwagen Trophy are being mentioned. But that's all like bringing a gun to a knife fight...

Yup, Scirocco GT24 is pretty good. But full factory support, factory drivers that also adds a great deal of performance. OPC supported two Phoenix Astras in 2008, and they did pretty well, also. For a 3T class, anyways.

They should let loose GT2 class or exclude it completely. Choking GT2's to enable GT3 class fighting chance for overall is pointless - IMHO.

Yeah, thats the one, a class with mix of Diesel powered machines. Alte Gulbrandsen, I have to ask, whats the "Green Hell" a.k.a Nurburgring like other than being an incredible challenge???

It brings out the vehicles true competitive edge, to the point it was not far off the GT3 cars Lap Times. I guess VW see it as a great promotional tool for the new model and it sure as hell is (at the moment) a success. I agree, performance balancing(another term for making faster cars Heavier, Less Efficient, Less Competitive and therefore Slower) is a pain. It shouldn't be the teams with more agile vehicles who have to pick up the slack. They have a more loose interpretation of it in the Dubai 24 Hour but since no GT2 Cars enter the race, they haven't used it yet.

That's the point. I'm pretty sure they want to get rid of GT2 eventually and make GT3 the top class, but they want to give the teams that purchased an RSR for a lot of money a chance to use it a while longer.

To answer your question. The Nordschleife is an incredible challenge. As most know this circuit is one of a kind. It's by far the best race track in the world today.

It's not common to race all the races in a championship at the same track, but as long as it is the Nordschleife that's ok. Sometimes it's a bit boring to stay in the same hotel and eat at the same restaurants 6-7 times a year, but the track never gets boring.

The BMW Hungary Efficiency BMW 120d scored an incredible result at Dubai.
What is the spec on that unit and how much BMW factory support did it have?
Anyone know if it fits VLN elligibilty, and if so what clas, and are they liable to enter the Nr24?

About the 120d. I think it could do the Nurburgring24.

It's some interesting news at www.vln.de at the moment about Porsche factory drivers at the 'Ring, and some meetings with the new boss.
