    It will be interesting to see what kind of lap times they can put up compared to the GT-R! Not to mention the 'pack' of other cars, many of which are new. :2tu::usa:

    By the looks of the car, and the specs on it, .....with an aggressive/ clean driver that is capable of using the GT3-R as the track weapon that it is,.......

    It should slap the crap out of anything else that shows up.
    :headbang:


    I don't think the other whatever cars have a chance.
    -unless they make the Viper run with some stupid restrictor plate or some de-tuning crap like that to 'even it up'. :crazy2:

    Riley Viper 5 seconds slower than the SRT GTSR in initial testing at Sebring and the Riley car only mid pack in GTD class.

    You need to realize it's a new program and car. So whatever they learned from the GTS-R probably can't be applied to the GT3-R.

    It could very well be setup...I dropped 13 sec from Day 1 to Day 4 at that track. Its long and technical with multiple track surfaces and rough bumpy sections. Setup is key. I think there was rain too...

    Dont forget...The GTS-R Has only about 450 hp while the GT3-R has 700 I think. Not surprised the GT3 is a faster car.

    Correct on your numbers but the GT3 was 5 seconds SLOWER than the GTSR. Not faster.
