    Last weekend the results of GT cars were unfortunately very bad. There were 3 Abarths competing in Rally di Roma Capitale, the 5th round of European Rally Championship. The best of them was French driver Raphael Astier who finished the rally down in the 35th position, over 21 minutes behind the overall winner, behind many R2 cars. What a disappointment.

    Unfortunatelly all three cars had mechanical issues. Raphael was doing great rally and before issues he was between slowest R5 cars, more than minute in front of all 2WD cars. Due to that mechanical issues he lost around 15 minutes... https://rally-base.com/crew-profile/...62&ssGroupId=1

    Finally an R-GT which looks fast. It would need a bit more power (or less weight) though. And the sound is no match for 911. Anyway I like it.

    One detail about the Cayman. Does it have all four wheels same size unlike 911?

    To get this class moving and growing, could it be an idea to allow all homologated/approved GT4 cars, and follow the European GT4 regulations found here: https://european.gt4series.com/gb_en/regulations

    They use successballast in GT4, I guess that might be tougher to do in a Rallycar, or is that possible?

    If possible drivers would have all these cars to choose from:
    Nr. Manufacturer Model Since Expiration Developer
    RACB GT4-012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 01-04-2009 31-12-2018 Aston Martin
    RACB GT4-015 Lotus Evora 25-07-2011 31-12-2018 Lotus
    RACB GT4-019 Ginetta G55 01-04-2014 31-12-2021 Ginetta
    RACB GT4-021 KTM X-Bow 02-12-2016 31-12-2023
    RACB GT4-027 Ford Mustang GT4 01-08-2017 31-12-2024
    RACB GT4-028 SIN R1 01-01-2015 31-12-2022 Matech Concepts
    RACB GT4-MC Maserati Gran Turismo MC GT4 01-04-2016 31-12-2020
    RACB GT4-030 McLaren 570S 01-01-2017 31-12-2024

    Tuthill 911 RGT (basically same 3.8 flat six) also never sound as good as any unrestricted 911. Apparently they’re using larger wheels at the rear, like in the racing car. Biggest doubt on this gorgeous Cayman probably is the PDK gearbox; can it be as effective on a rally as it is on a track?

    Yep, allowing GT4 homologations (slightly modified) without the need for a complicated RGT homologation sounds great. A different ballast scale would be needed, but any model final Kg/hp ratio should get a bit bellow the uncompetitive 3,4 RGT current figure.

    Finally some official news:

    @PorscheRaces
    The Cayman GT4 Clubsport is just a concept car for rallyes. At the German @wrc round Rallye Deutschland 🇩🇪 we will collect feedback from the rallye scene. The decision if a similar car based on a future model could be developed will be made later in the year.
    https://twitter.com/PorscheRaces



    So, this beauty won’t be homologated and will continue to be tested until they’re sure to make a RGT version of (most likely) the future 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport. Hopefully the decision will be positive and they’ll take next monthes to make their car even more competitive. Fingers crossed.

    Btw, some info on the 718 Cayman GT4: https://www.motor1.com/news/258615/p...4-spied-naked/
