After squabbling for multiple years, awarding a deal and then pulling it back, openly badmouthing everyone, and multiple lawsuits from local rich people... Laguna Seca just reupped for 3 years with SCRAMP. Well that sure was a lot of effort for the status quo.

The Classes:
http://www.bathurst12hour.com.au/ra...ormation/entry/

Class A - GT3 Pro, Pro/Am, Am

stolen and revised from the 2015 thread posted:

Started in 2005 this class of GT cars was built with the intention of bringing in several one make series cars and really any racecar under homologation rules to run in this series. In this way you get a vast amount of cars from McLaren 650s to Bentley Continental to Chevrolet Camaro.. Usually not ran by a factory team but by privateers and rich people who can fund these cars. Thats why at Spa you get 60 some odd cars for the running and most like to get Ferraris Lamborghinis and almost kill people with them if the 2014 race was any idea. Cars of all sorts can be made put into GT3 by homologation rules and balance of performance so you get such a wide array of cars, but its preferable to get newer cars with development closer to the manufacture (looking at Bentley, Cadillac, and McLaren).

quote:

Pro for entries featuring all-professional drivers
Pro/AM for entries featuring a maximum of two (2) professional / seeded drivers.
Am for entries featuring a maximum of one (1) professional / seeded driver.

Class B - GT3 Cup

quote:

Basically 911 GT3 RS's, but race prepped. Often seen in spec races against other 911 GT3 Cup Cars, these are basically regular old 911's but racecar. There are several generations of them in current use today, Current ones are 991.2, 991, and 997 generation cup cars

Class C - GT4

shamelessly stolen from Opposite Lock posted:

The GT4 class was created to support the GT3 class with a true low tech amateur sports car series. The GT4 class consists of cars that are much closer to the road cars they are based on over than the other classes featured here. GT4 cars are often referred to as "Track Day" cars, as they are at price points that make them very accessible to gentleman drivers who want racing experience. The GT4 class is often seen accompanying GT3 classes in series around the globe. You'll also see GT4 class cars compete in single make series.

Class D - Invitational

quote:

The sloppy seconds, whatever's left over that SRO let in to fill out the grid. For Bathurst, expect lots of MARC V8 Supercars, and the occasional random race converted street car that doesn't fit somewhere else in the grid.

There weren't any fiats that I saw last year. I'm heading out to it and the field of cars is quite a bit bigger than it was last year as well. I'm kinda glad there's less Audi's because they're pretty boring compared to the Bentleys and Ferraris.
