It's still green and yellow, so just call it a Reverse-Grello.

VLN has too many classes. Looks like the Uruguayan Rally Championship.

VLN has exactly the right amount of classes so that everyone with a 500.000 euro budget to a rag-tag team running their self-built VW Corrado can race. Just as intended.

Classes galore is what makes VLN.

People out there who only care about SP9 etc for the GT3 cars are missing out on the true spirit of the championship

I never said to allow +400hp cars only. I said that the grid is spread too thin in too many classes.

VLN is for the competitors, similar to Creventic. It isn't ideally setup for great competition in the lower classes due to the numbers, but it is setup to be extremely accessible. In that regard, it's perfect right now.

If I were an amateur driver, I'd rather enter a 16-car class than a 7-car class.

Not if the 16 car class was double the budget That's where VLN is good. It has something for everyone. It's built for the competitors, not the spectators.

It's the perfect place for those with a little money to run a racing team to have some fun during the weekends (I wish I had some....)

If nothing else, the unique nature of the track/series means that all those little hatchbacks and slower cars really make things more exciting as it's really enjoyable to watch the GT3 cars carve through the traffic. The onboard footage in the early part of the race (haven't watched the whole thing yet) was awesome.

The people running them seem to be happy and having fun, they help make the series unique, and they are adding to the excitement... I don't see any reason to even consider changing anything.

Totally agree...I love the fact there is an old Mk2 Jetta, a Corrado, usually a Mk3 kit-car and a scattering of all kinds of other old / oddball / one-off cars. I love the VLN for exactly what it is, and it's currently my favorite race series out there. I'm envious of the teams who compete having that opportunity, as there really isn't anything quite like it in the USA. We have low-dollar series, but they don't have that special vibe that the VLN seems to have.

The GT3 comment wasn't in response to you moreso another poster who posted earlier in this thread about focussing more on GT3 cars.

The battles in the lower classes are no less fierce then those in SP9 and there's always stories to tell up and down the pitlane with some teams battling each other year in year out. A big thanks to Miguel and the GT Report guys for bringing us their coverage of the series for us English speaking fans. I really need to get off my ass and start learning German again.
