Why would two-door coupés with two or 2+2 seats be called "touring cars"? They are stock GTs, so use that name.

Keeping with the fanstasy thing, if IMSA took over Grand-Am, I would believe that the 24 Hours of Daytona would drop prototurtles and switch to Grand-Am Challenge privateer stock GTs.

But if they keep racing together with meaner GTs but are cheaper enough, it could work perfectly.
