MJ_N_09 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
^ That sounds like a damn good project that if it holds, will perform really well. Could Jaguar regain their former glory in racing that way?

Not in GT3 they couldn't - but it would be a nice stepping stone towards something bigger in the future.

Nissan facing to increase their motorsport involvement

http://www.endurance-info.com/versio...nce-14168.html

Sometimes i wonder if it is so hard to develop a GT3 program like BMW or Mercedes have done, with completelly higher impact over the media than current nissan GT-R GT program, instead of feeding with 30hp each year the monster the GT-R is becoming.

This time isn't my Google translate:

BMW Z4 GT3 : Countless wins and plenty of stamina.

How can the upgrades cost like the car? This article has few errors.

The Z4 costs only grew 10K to 2013 that's cost control!

Thats a race kit. It means you get all the parts you need, but you have to build the car by your own

I think it's fair to say that the new car price is too cheap because of price cap rather than upgrade kit is too expensive.
The business model of GT3 seems to be sale of an upgrade kit.

Yeah the price cap would bite into the profit margins so the upgrades would have to be the money spinners, no doubt helped by every man and his dog bringing out upgrades every year, its a vicious cycle.

Although I cant help but be reminded of an interview with Ron Dennis I think it was who said that they werent making any money off the GT3 car, whether he meant as a whole or just the car without the upgrades is open to interpretation. Although I could not imagine McLaren not making money out of gentlemen racers. the F1 GTR programme was supposed to make more money then the roadcars themselves.

So 315K is All the car in parts, if i'm correct, choose what you need and pay what you need, am I correct? But built it yourself.

(Nobody pays 315K unless you wanted to build the whole car yourself in addition to not owning the car).

West Coast Racing did just that a couple of years ago... there's a nice time lapse video of it:
