    Glad you have picked up the GT3 fever! :D

    I'll be entering too, of course, not sure wither it will be Huracan as well or Ferrari.

    Positively pi55 wet through in fever my friend! Despite my woeful lack of preparation, once I managed to keep the wheels on the black stuff it proved to be a whole bunch of fun :)

    I quite like Mugello so that should help, Brands GP has always been somewhat of a bogey track for me so I'm glad it's over to be fair :roflmao:

    I'm all for as many Italian cars as there can be, maybe Maserati will come back one day too, like they planned, but had to put the efforts aside for now unfortunately. Unless they wanted to convert GT MC into GT3 and the realized it would work better in GT4. Would be nice some day anyway.

    There is not a huge difference, but there is non the less. GT2, which is called GTE (or GTLM in USA) since 2011, have more efficient aerodynamics, so more downforce with less drag, they have different regulations when it comes to power, not sure what they are, but they have less power than GT3. GTE runs exclusively on Michelin tires and they have better compounds than GT3 (for example Pirellis from Blancpain and PWC). GTE also have no ABS. These are all things I can come up with from on top of my head.

    Basically GTE, designed with endurance races in mind, are more efficient than GT3, they are faster overall, but not down the straights.

    With latest gen cars, GTE and GT3 are even closer to each other. For example in order to convert 488 GT3 into GTE, you only have to change engine (don't know why), rear wing, and some more minor miscellaneous things (I think). GTE are still quite a bit more expensive.
    Though I think GTE is heading away from GT3 and more towards GT1, probably because of Ford's initiatives and Porsche following similar path. On cars like 488 and M6, GT3 and GTE specs just happen to cross each other at this particular point on a time line of development.

    Ok now i see everything better :D ! There is for example Blancpain Sprint and Endurance ... and participants of this two series are GT3 cars ? One more question also ... GT3 cars have got ABS and TC or just ABS ?

    Really thank you very much for the explanation !!! :)

    You are very welcome! :thumbsup: Yes, Blancpain main series only allows GT3. They have both multistep TC and ABS which can be disabled.

    Offtopic, but I had to share this amazing shot, taken at past weekend's Sebring 12 Hour race, shared by Sportscar365.

    Yes, always.
    Our Carrera Cup series also allow ABS, since new generation car has it from factory as an option, even though its not used in Cup major series like Mobil 1 in EU, Cup in USA and Cup in Germany.

    Good old Z4 :D Do you guys, who regularly drive it, think M6 will take Z4's place or are we going to see Bavarian bros race side by side?
