FormulaFox is heading for a stewards' enquiry!
Given what's been said about GT2 aero-wise(which is said to be aimed at being more GT4-like), I have a feeling that the new 935 won't be eligible.


Would still love to see it race somewhere. This kind of car is what PFV classes exist for.

New SRO GT2

SRO says 6 manufacturers are actively interested in the GT2 for 2019...

So Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and who else?

Aston Martin, McLaren and maybe Mercedes or Audi

I'd say both Mercedes and Audi, seeing how their GT4s are actually too super for a non-supercar class like GT4.

According to Head of Porsche Motorsport Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, the Porsche 935 would fit, performance-wise, within SRO’s newly announced GT2 platform.
The technology behind of this 935 track day car could serve as the foundation of a future GT2 entry.
Porsche is understood to have already been track testing a GT2 RS-based race car, which was again spotted at Monza earlier this week.

Any basis to that or just a hunch?

Think the S365 article said Ratel has 3 commitments for next season so far and other interested builders.

I would assume Porsche could make a GT2 from the GT2 with the 935 engine tune in the "regular" bodywork. I wouldn't be surprised to see a Ferrari of either the 458 or F12. Lamborghini also sounds like a promising option with either platform but I'd guess a relaxed aero and more engine of the Super Trofeo.

All of these are guesses at who COULD build a car:

I would not be surprised to see an R8 car built especially if there's a push to squeeze them and McLaren out of GT4. Same thing with a McLaren but with the Senna possibly, although that seems like it might be more aero than desired but the rules are oh so clear so far. I think we could see the DB come back to racing if Aston decided to join in as well but I won't hold my breath for anything from them until it appears on track. If GT2 is allowed to run alone or as the fastest cars I could see Bentley making a car as well but they seem to love being the top class on track. MB is another who could be squeezed out of GT4 and want to build another car with their AMG. Could we see Acura also join in with the NSX or Lexus with the LC500? I could also see, IF there's enough cash put forth ahead of time, a top end Vette program IF GT2 becomes something but nothing soon at all. It seems like there could be lots of options and if they can keep it a "affordable" gentleman's class I think you'd see more cars built after the first season

Just as an aside, I'd love a mixed class GT2/GT4 endurance series.

Those are the brands mentioned in the different notes published about GT2, of course all of that have GT3 and GT4 cars and it should not be difficult to build a GT2 as well and it would be a good opportunity for them.
