Most GT300 runs a lot of GT3 cars in it, with GT300 covering the more unusual one offs and weird cars that run crazy non standard to the original car layouts.But since SuperGT has already done the Balance of Performance work on it, no reason not to leave the option open in case a Japanese team wants to run one of their silhouette cars here.
So, how about GT3 and TCR in the same race then?Creventic do that in the 24H Series, which the Bathurst 12 Hour was affiliated to before it switched to the SRO organised Intercontinental GT Challenge.
In this year's 24H Dubai (which lasted only 7 hours before being red flagged due to heavy rain flooding the circuit) the difference in best lap times between the GT3 and TCR classes was 11.7%, and the difference in laps completed 9% (TCR cars aided by laps under full course caution).
In percentage terms, the GT3/TCR difference is almost exactly the same as the difference between the LMP2 outright winner and GT3 class winner at the 4 Hours of The Bend held the same weekend.
A Creventic race would be a perfect fit for an endurance race on the 7.7km circuit at The Bend, possibly using the East Circuit pit lane for the TCR cars.
