if any gt1 wc car finishes it'll be a shock and half the gt2 feild will be faster anyway.

gt3 is based on preformance balancing, basically every car is given to a driver at a track and does laps and then they are balanced. But there's so much cheating happening at this test you end up with ver slow porsches and fast ferrari's and then slow ferraris and fast ford etc etc. plus it's only done at 1 track so if a cars fast in a stright line around a track with l;ong strights it gets more harshly punished than it should.

The rules need to say this is allowed and this isn't. Like all rules do. I think you also have to over punish new updates, the ferrari f430 has been updated every season and these updates arn't cheap.

GT3 cars are not that expensive, compared to GT2 cars. A brand new Mercedes SLS GT3 costs $180,000, and a BMW Z4 GT3 costs $200,000. In the video posted in the GT and Endurance section, the Mercedes person says that the car can be adapted to many regulations. If the ACO just allowed FIA GT3-spec cars to enter a separate class with no mofifications needed, it would be flooded with entries, because the likes of of Mercedes and BMW are not only offering relatively affordable brand new race cars, compared to other GT cars. They are offering technical support for teams that run their cars as well - which would lower a teams costs even further.

No meddling with the rules with GT3 cars would make for a good championship in LMS.
