    Oh sorry I didn't know that, I read it was used on circuit, but i guess i didn't read it carefully .

    N-GT

    N-GT was the class I thought it was some discussion allowing, but was it in IRC they talked about this, but was not given green light by FIA ?

    But they are reasonably priced, and have a soundpicture that make goosebumps, especially the GT3's so they would make sense, at least for many Gentleman drivers, that does this for fun !

    Is there a certain safety issue with these cars nowadays? If you rolled the Aston for example with that roofline? Doesn't seem like much margin but I'm no expert.

    I think they add a great bit of variety to fields in national rallies. And also come with a great soundtrack.

    N-GT porsche road challenge run about 250 km/h or 155 mph. More final speed should make no sence at a rally stage, actually 225 km/h but even better acceleration would be enough.

    In Spain, the highest speed I've heard was 214 km/h, achieved by Alberto Monarri with a Ferrari 360 Rallye, but it was in a night rally,and Porsche is a better car, so 220 km/h must be achievable
