Gordon Murray rules out Le Mans for his new GMA T50s.

Murray has launched a series of 25 'track days' cars, the GMA T50s. And many other luxury brands or 'hypercars' have cars that can only be enjoyed on the track and are not 'registrable'.

Murray's idea is not that of his own series or to imitate the Ferrari Days races, but what he thinks is to intervene in a category such as the BRP, which was in force between 1994 and later became a FIA GT championship. in 1997.

Murray has admitted to being in talks with Stéphane Ratel, the founder and owner of the SRO Motorsport Group, which controls the best GT championships to find a solution.

This would be a Pro-Am category that, of course, inspires many dreams: Koenigsegg, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Pagani, Lamborghini, etc.

In fact, Ratel was already cherishing this idea. It has created a new GT2 category to expand the field, but always thinking of recovering the GT1.

As with the F1 and F1 GTR I prefer it being more road car and sans wing.

The wing does make it look more racy, but in reality, will anybody buy one of these to drive on the street? I'd have to imagine track days will be part of any owners schedule!

You’re right, but IMO these people have missed the point of this car and the F1. Murray used his on the road a lot, as did Rowan Atkinson. Proper.

I was lucky enough to have a tour of the F1 factory and they told me a story back then. A German owner took their car in for servicing. It was pretty high mileage. McLaren downloaded data from the car and told the owner there was a problem as it showed that in the last two weeks the car had apparently been over 200mph on ten of those days (something like that anyway). The owner reported no it was correct, the Autobahns had been clear.

Although, while I would use it regularly on the road if I owned one I would also occasionally track it.

Calling the track one after Niki is cool though.

The numbers of 852 kg, 3.9 liter Cosworth V12 engine, 725 hp at 12,100 rpm, excite me a lot. I wonder if this car could do the 3:30 at Le Mans.
And I also wonder why not an LMH AM for these cars, I think the Bugatti Bolide would be at this level too. Having these cars would be much better than 25 Orecas LMP2 or 15 Ferraris or Porsche GTE AM.
I love this photo.
