I'm really looking forward to this.

Why is the Hankook / H&R Spezialfedern (Altzen) Porsche classified in SP8 as apposed to the RSR's in SP7 - Is it a 996 GT2?

Do you mean entry #4?
Details of the car are unknown, maybe it could be a big surprise. No information is available at the moment,
in Alzen's website's guestbook someone claims something BIG is coming...

Entry #34 seems to be the VLN-Cup Porsche 997 GT3, maybe as backup car for #4.

Ahhhhh.... I've looking forward to this too.... and hopefully the wealth of coverage again like we had last year. It was amazing, I had RLM commentary, Live TV feed, Live Ticker and Live Timing, plus Ten-Tenths and the Aston's GPS (it was bit crap though admittedly) to cram into one screen!

Let's hope the rain stays (mainly) away, and the fog doesn't do its 'thing' again.

Yes, that the one.
Thanks for the clue.

I went to their web site and someone is also suggesting a 1300kg easy 997 turbo with a large KKK turbocharger and 1,1bar load pressure, with a Wide Body Look. Wow!, that would be something.

Not knowing too much about the race, only get the 1 hour coverage about 8 months later on SPEED. Is there a class for either GT1 (FIA or ACO) or P2 or 3 cars in the race?

Nope. The only GT1 car is the Viper, which is allowed to race at the Ring because it's been there for the last ten years and is slowed down by using only 8 cylinders.

There's no class for prototypes of any kind, actually a car brand needs to be recognized by the German authorities in order to be allowed to run in the VLN (Nürburgring endurance series). Hence no Moslers or other more exotic cars.

Thats what I had figured, think I had heard somewhere they wanted the car to be driven to the track on its own and then raced.

That time however is long over, though it would be technically possible with the Aston Vantage N24. In the end it's still a touring car race, with a relatively* small field of relatively common GTs put on top of it.

*enough for a pretty full grid in an average series.

I think it's also the FIA classification of the track that doesn't allow anything faster than a GT2 on it, at least when driven in anger.

It's the V10 with two cylinders disconnected. Although I've heard they might switch to a real V8. The rules only state that the engine has to come from the same manufacturer, it doesn't have to be the stock one

@F360: Why? The new 500 isn't too different from the masses of Clios and Fiestas...

It's a great race but IMO there are to many classes.
