The new R8 probably is all of those things, but the reason for that name is because Audi does this thing known as 'Audi Ultra Lightweight Technology' which wwas plastered down the side of R18's last seaosn.

YACO did mention from a while back that they'd also be in FIA GT3.
Can't believe I'll be able to see that car on track, and up close.

Do we know what the race car weighs? Or is your comment about the street car?

The street car weighs similar to the Nissan GT-R and Aston DB9, so I don't see why it couldn't be brought down to acceptable weight if those were.

You sure? I see no mention of the Camaro, only Callaway Corvette in the quoted post.

camaro gt3 weight is something more of 1300kg (by release info because in fia site there aren't anymore pdf files with data info), corvette z06 gt3 dry weight is 1280kg or 1270kg in 2010 version.

The SLS is 1300kg or more I believe so does it really matter? I would rather see a BoP’d Camaro running in the middle of the pack than a Callaway Z06 loaded with ballast and choked with a tiny restrictor running at the back. This is basically spec racing with different marques because of BoP; in theory a VW Jetta could compete because of BoP. What will be hilarious is if the Camaro actually wins a few races, how humiliating that will be for McLaren, Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo, Audi and Merc. I doubt the SRO or FIA will let that happen though.

I just assumed they were going to have APP supply their engines, looks like it will be Katech. Seems odd considering the logistics, APP is their back yard.

you're wrong because sls weight was 1340kg in 2011 not 1300kg, however the car can't be compared with camaro, because sls has been projected and built directly by mercedes with the help of HWA and was one of cars with best aero package that impressed a lot in his debut year (some win in fia gt3, podium at spa, victory at 24h of dubai etc...). Camaro by sereni is a car born from a shilly-shallying between reiter and his external section (SeReNi) in a project left and reopened for at least 2 years long (reiter projected, built and developed a new spec GT1 car like R-SV in just some months). For this reason i don't expect much by this car. BTW callaway since 2011 focused exclusively on adac gt master because their bop let them still to be competitive.

It doesn’t matter where the SLS was developed or the amount of money spent on tech if during the BoP test they get more ballast and a smaller restrictor. In this case they didn’t need the ballast because it was already a fat pig of a car. I said “The SLS is 1300kg or more” because I couldn’t remember the exact homologated weight, I don’t know how that is wrong but whatever. If it’s a performance balanced series the Camaro should be competitive, or someone got the BoP wrong. The Z06 homologated weight was 1270kg as you pointed out but that didn’t matter because it was loaded with enough ballast to make it weight around (If I remember correctly it was 1340kg…but I could be wrong) same as the fat Merc with a smaller restrictor thrown in for good measure. As far as the ADAC BoP goes, it wasn’t much different from the FIA GT3 BoP; just enough to keep Ernst interested in racing the cars somewhere. I’ll be pulling for the Camaro and just for comedic effect I hope it can win a few.
