That's cool, but I'd really like to see them make a GT2/E car and compete with the big boys.

A GT2 car would be nice but GT3 is a good start. Maybe Nismo might take the GT1 car and downgrade it in the future to fit the GT2 regs.

There were people who tried to convince them to do GT2 instead of GT1... didn't happen.

There were people who tried to convince them to convert a couple of cars to GT2... didn't happen.

This fits their model of participation much better.

Stop wishing and be happy for what they are doing.

GT2 is jumping into the deep end of the pool ask GM/Corvette Racing. Some heads rolled at Risi over running out of fuel with less than half a lap to go, they should have never won Petit Le Mans but it is what it is.

GT3 is perfectly okay what you SHOULD be doing it emailing the ALMS and telling them this is a perfect time to announce that you'll be opening up GTC to GT3 cars.

Big, no bigger than a Mustang or Camaro maybe cause it actually has a backseat?

Ferrari, Porsche and Corvettes are not practical for daily use which is why most people don't use them daily.

Its called "Godzilla" for a reason, it whoops arse for considerably LESS MONEY.

I want to see what's bigger, the Mustang GT3 or the GT-R GT3. I would hate to be in one of the Z4's with either the Mustang or Godzilla behind me.

Still, I happy the GT-R is going to GT3. This along with the Camaro that's being developed shows that GT3 is still in good health.

Would love to see the car in GT3 as this championship really is the future of sportscar racing and is attracting pretty much every major manufacturer (Stephane Ratel has actually done something right for once). Maybe im opening a can of worms with this comment but the GT-R is a TWIN TURBOed 4WD car?!? Is it going to be allowed to race in this configuration or is it going to go down the gt1 route of sticking in a v8 NA lump in the front? Both options will probably provoke an "arms race" with the other constructors.

It's obviously not going to run as 4WD, just as the Lamborghinis don't. Non-production engines aren't anything new either (Z4!), I don't see the problem.

Yeah indeed. Four wheel drive would be banned anyway, plus taking that out of the car would make it lighter which would be of benefit, not sure if they could make the power needed by removing the turbos, V8 could be possible too. Forced induction isnt banned in GT3 is it? The Lotus Exige GT3R ran a supercharged engine did it not?

Although Im surprised that other manufacturers havent kicked up a fuss over BMW using a non production engine in the Z4, whats the go there?

The Jaguar did too, if I remember correctly. Also one of the original GT3 cars that Ratel lined up for 2006 was a Venturi - they used a turbocharged V6, didn't they?
