Is there a reason they run this instead of an RCF GT3?

Despite their recent Porsche announcement for Blancpain, ROWE will in fact continue running a pair of BMW M6 GT3's in the VLN and N24.

Advice please

from what I can understand, campsites are pay on the door unless you book with an agent.
If we did go to the 24hr, with a campervan - if we turn up on the Wednesday how likely would we be getting in & access to a hook up (ideally the campsite by the GP track but open to suggestions)

Looks like Frikadelli aren't happy with the BoP.

ADAC GT Masters? Though this isn't the first time that either of them has complained about BoP and threatened to withdraw.

Frikadelli have complained in the past, but can't remember which year.

This isn't strictly about BOP, at least not BOP between GT3 makes.

There's a whole slew of Nurburgring-specific rules to slow the cars down - wings, ride height, power etc.

The issue here is that the GT3 cars have been hit with a 5% HP reduction. There are two complaints: first that it's pretty late to make such a change with the season barely two weeks away and second that it only applies to GT3 cars, meaning they risk struggling to pass Cup and GT4 cars.

The complaint about the lateness of the change seems reasonable. The concern about relative speeds I am willing to take the teams' word for. I fully appreciate the need to control speeds on the Ring, but it does seem that VLN have handled this rather clumsily.

Mies has declared he deoesn't want to race VLN1 and wants to see what the BoP is like first and only returns to VLN2 if he thinks it is safe to do so.

A 5% decrease in power is 20-30hp. That's a good bit.
