Would it be the FIA bop or the same they've been running with the previous RC F's?

Also, the GT3 car was on Yokohama's.

It was in SPX because it's not homologated. It might be the car and spec they do homologate in, but if it isn't homologated then it will run in SPX. SCG003 is GT3 legal except homologation too.

Good to see another GT3 car joining the field. Let's get some in Blancpain.

I'm not sure if SP-X 004 / 2016 is the GT3 Prototype. I think it isn't, so you'll have to wait until they publish the new list.

Well, the bop table includes the KTM X-Bow GT4, which made it's debut at VLN 9, so I think it's the bop for that round. That means the RC F was running 1320kg, 120L, 1 x 54.4mm restrictor if so. Maybe they didn't change the bop at all on the car? The other non-turbo V8 GT3 is the AMG which runs 1335kg, 120L, 2 x 31.88 restrictor.

I suppose it could be that they didn't change the BoP, yes. Maybe that's why they won

That may be a reason. But the car was doing good before the latest version. I think the new aero coupled with the updated engine they were running before really helped. Hopefully they run well at the next race.

Here's more info on the RC F from Dominik Farnbacher http://www.racing.gt/2016/10/farnbac...-step-forward/. The chassis is the biggest thing that has changed. He also says the overall weight of the car has dropped by 40kg.

Thanks for that, great photos in the gallery too.

Do you think they will likely run an N24 programme next year?

There might be one in Blancpain, at least that's the goal.

There's still the fight for the Speed Trophäe going on: https://www.facebook.com/gtreport/po...99491286939504

But no one seems to care about that unless they need a positive PR spin. I'm not even sure if Haribo Racing will show up this weekend.

I don't keep up with VLN too much. I saw this Lexus testing at Sebring today. Does anyone on here know if this is a VLN/N24 car that's testing there? I've seen other VLN cars test at Sebring before so it wouldn't be too out of the ordinary. I was pretty surprised to see a Lexus out there and thought it was the older RC F that 3GT/F Performance are in possession of at first, but it's not that car.
