Direct works entries are forbidden in FIA GT as SRO only wants private or semi-private teams to enter, remember the Nissan on the 2009 season - it was entered by the Nismo factory squad and therefore wasn't able to score any points (not that it mattered when they run on much slower GT1 spec and only did handful of races anyway).

Some teams get partial support (like YD) but most of them are just plain privateers and have very little to do with manufacturers.



edit: oh sorry, sorry! I somehow misread the topic title and thought your question was about FIA GT only, forget what I said then
