There are very few running. I believe it's due to the gearbox. If you want to run App K then you can't use the later box.

Aren't they still very heavy though?, lots of power would be great but stopping the heavy weight cars with "Period" brakes would be a nightmare, I would have thought???.

Not sure a Corvette Grand Sport is eligible nowadays......

Griffiths weak link for a 6hr race is itís brakes, so Iím told. Modest discs on front and drums rear.

I say as back in 2013 or around that time there was a White Grandsport that was able to run in amongst them .Run by a dutch crew.
Would be a shame if not allowed anymore.

If it's the one I think it is, it was disqualified because it wasn't App K. The same team ran that NASCAR Falcon one year.

Correct. That car was a new built copy of the original, of which only 5 were made and never homologated.

Not raced by the factory as they cancelled their race program. 3 were sold to privateers and did some racing in the US, the other two were converted to open top and put in museums....

Iíve no idea whether any copies (think more than one) have HTPs, and if they do, whether the classification is GT Prototype, which it should be.

No doubt if Duddha reads this he may know more!

When they run in Masters it is as invited NKHTGT entries. So they may comply with that series regs, but not necessarily others.....

Yes, they look the part, but have very little in common with a Corvette! More a front engined, space frame prototype with Corvette style body..... Would go down a storm in Modsports / Super Saloons!
