Link to source? It does sound like a large misunderstanding, as surely we would have seen it reported that goodyear is effectively leaving the classes they were chosen as the spec tire.

GTE ceased being an engineering class years ago. It has been BoP regulated for 5-6 years or so now. When they did that, it became a pointless class.

plot twist incoming... gt2 "evolved" in gte was actually a bop class even before GT3 was created... main difference was that over 10 years ago, before GT1 demise and the entry of other manufacturers like corvette, bmw, work AMR etc... gt2 was mainly a ferrari vs porsche class + small/indipendent tuners.

Weren't they allowed to make some developments more frequently than in GT3? There were different tyre manufacturers too. Even from this point of view, with all the "waivers", I can not see where's the "excitement" to get just another GT3 series.

Can't wrap my head around it. After years of being teased and led along. Even E-I reporting at one point it was going to be announced. It felt like it would never happen.

This is seismic. And you have to think IMSA are now suddenly scrambling to give LMH more of a look-in too.
