GT4?

According to Autosport Stephan Ratel is planning a GT4 series starting next year for less powerful and less developed GT cars. He wants 4 differnet manufacturers for the series. Ratel has listed The Lotus Exige, Nissan 350z and Aston Martin V8 vantage as potential cars. He says that there could be 4-5 races next season starting at Silverstone in May.
To be honest I think this is a bit much.

Just when GT3 was getting so popular. I think he should concentrate on developing GT1 and GT2 rather than bringing in yet more classes.

If he really wants a GT4 class, why not experiment by getting in discussion with the GT Cup teams in BGT and see what they can all come up with or agree too...?

Im getting **** hearing about GT3 , GT4 ..... soon the Grand-Am folk will have something to laugh about ..... US !!!

Why not talk about a GT5 ..... whats that , a kart or what !!!

If you cant afford to go GT1 or GT2 or even GT3 ..... I suggest you go super touring .

GT4? It'll be called 1 in 12 years time.

Or GT5 when the PS3 comes out.

As Chris Kamara would say UNBELIEVABLE!

Do the movers and shakers running FIA GT have any clear idea of it's future?

tbh i think gt1,gt2,gt3 is enough gt3 has been getting great grids and as has been said earlier in this thread gt1, and gt2 grids should be improved. i feal the fia gt series dosnt need gt4 it needs more gt1 cars.

Ratel is not interested in racing as such, he is interested in business and another class is another set of entry fees to increase turnover. Racing should be run by business people who are enthusiasts not by guys who see it as a way to make money in a glamorous environment. Does anybody know if Ratel ever raced?

I think that is unfair on Ratel. Although perhaps just a natural cynical view. To have a successful series then you need entries. Perhaps many want a GT4 series? If they get the entries then we get more GT racing.

If you want to be cynical then consider that Ratel would not do something that he thought jeopardised GT racing because then he would lose him money.

I think it is all a bit silly and too much, but it is unfair to say someone is doing it for the wrong reasons. I also don't think it is relevant whether he raced before, not everyone who is enthusiastic about GT racing raced in it.

See car #56 on the above link, Ratel was indeed involved from a racing point of view once with the Venturi. I personally don't know of anything other than that LM entry about his racing exploits.

Beside LM 93 he used to start in the Venturi Trophy.

This may be slightly off topic but it's to do with Ratel, I guess - has there been a noise limit set on GT2? I've not been around for the last couple of races and have found videos from Budapest on YouTube, and the Porsches sound like the GT3 cup versions....? I really don't see the point...
