This is not a BMW Studie thread. This is Super GT general thread.

The Beard might be out at Gainer? That'd be a shame.

The Lexus RCF seems towards the Ferrari as an expensive GT3 option.

Great to see the Prius continue. I'm not a fan of the roadcar (their drivers they drive around under the speed limit and not taking notice of whats going around them) but those APR cars are fine with me.

Im pretty sure Muller lost his status as BMW factory driver at the end of last year. Correct me if wrong.

Is that means #111 Rn-Sports will also use NSX GT3 as well?

After all, we can expect major shake-up at 2018 GT300 lineup.
With Wirdheim being rumored will be out from Team Gainer, I'd like to have him still racing in another potent GT300 team. He had the chance for the championship but often missed out by few points.

Also, with some teams are rumored to switch to NSX GT3, hopefully Honda can provide the ladder below GT500 class for its young drivers, just like Toyota & Nissan do.

CarGuy announces that they have done entry application for GT300 class.
They don't buy a seed rights. So they are C group.

So a possible 3 new RC F GT3's in Super GT next year? That would be a big total representation for the car. I can't think of any other car model with 5 running in GT300, not even the Mercedes.

Is that mean he was a pay driver in GT300 at 2015-2016? I have very little knowledge about how the drivers are paid.
What I know so far, he has been doing full-time racing in GT300 since 2015 and also the part of Toyota Young Drivers Program.

Nakayama was a TDP (Toyota young Drivers Program) driver until 2016.
IMO, TDP had supported his salaries instead of GT300 team (Team apr).
