Because the IGTC is gradually being established as a de facto world makes championship for GT3s. SRO are very clever here - they start small, build it each year. It started as a few existing races loosely linked together, now it's becoming a proper series, which means setting common rules.

I'm sure they are not OK with that, which is why they have GT4 and GT2 waiting to take over if GT3 implodes (which, btw, it shows absolutely no sign of doing despite the rise in the costs of the cars)

But while there is little SRO can do to control the price the manufacturers charge for their cars, they can control the costs of racing them at SRO events. That includes preventing richer teams from causing an expensive arms race on pit equipment which would ultimately drive customers away.
