GT3 Cars Are Allowed To Start In The European Le Mans Series In '13
Racing series governing body ACO "wants to increase the number of cars competing in the European Le Mans Series," according to Markus Lüttgens of MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com. In order to do so, the ACO will allow GT3 cars to start in the ELMS in '13. Even though discussions about a possible merger of ACO's GTE category and the FIA-sanctioned GT3 series have been currently underway, GT3 cars will be allowed to start in the GTC category in the ELMS. The new GTC category is explicitly for GT3 cars. In addition, the ELMS will also have the categories GTE-Pro and GTE-Am as well as the prototype categories LMP2 and LMPC (formerly known as Formula Le Mans) (MOTORSPORT-TOTAL.com, 11/4).
