I've ment this. Looks like they split original panels to fit onto those standard roll cage.

NSX_LeMans should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It is the same tube-frame from JL G-09 welded inside a production based body shell. Some parts like doors and hood are still made of fiber. The lights also comes from the road car. Windshield is now actual glass.


For those who missed, someone has uploaded Goiania races 1 and 2 on YT already.


EDIT: Hood/Bonnet. Not "roof".

I only found a number for the old J GL09: Back in 2009, they sold for $240.000.

I've checked through brazilian autosport sites and they confirm that engines are different: Toyota uses a NASCAR Truck block, while Cruze have one from Camaro. That's a huge and positive step for the championship in modern circumstances when monopolisation destroying the sport (all that nonsense about "cost saving", you know). Definitely, I'll watch this if I found any possibility.

Are there any articles to read about "tuning" these cars at different tracks? Something like Japanese have with their Autosport. Or do these cars race "out of box" with absolute minimum of changes? Well, maybe even tyre pressure and riding height are not standardised and it's interesting how drivers tune their machinery at different tracks.

In the good old days, Argentine magazines like Corsa and Automundo had technical articles. But today they are very scarce.

It's a common attitude, unfortunately. AutoSprint and AutoHebdo used to have lots of interesting tech details about different types of racing cars. It was 30 years ago. Today they write only about drivers. As if these drivers run without cars at all.
