While we're on the topic, I'm a huge fan of GT300 myself...
Anyone know if these races are shown live online anywhere? Don't mind if I have to pay for it.

The GT300 is limited to 300ps
the GT 500 is limited to 500ps
but like WRC i beleive there is no torque limitations
Therefore the R34 Skyline GTR's ran V6's (VQ30dett i believe)
The JZA80 Supra's Run V8's (3UZFE i believe)

West wrote:I don't know the exact numbers but people who qualify higher get heavier weight penalties than those who don't qualify as fast. Same with winning races; top finishers have more weight penalties, to keep the racing interesting.
As an aside, Nissan and Honda have made special homologation models to race in Super GT; the Nissan Fairlady Z Type-E and ans NSX-GT (something like that), respectively.
