Maybe somebody can back me up on numbers, but R&D alone is A LOT of money. LMP1 for instance cost Audi over 200 million this year. I can go ahead and tell you that it shouldn't cost them more than 50-75 million to do the FIA WEC with brand new chassis and engines every race. Where does the rest of that money go? Testing and R&D. Designing a GT3 car, although not as technologically advanced as a LMP1 car, still costs money. Probably more than the sub 20 million figure you had come up with. Exactly. Exactly x2. 350k would have been expensive 5 years ago. I've heard the new 488 GT3 costs 480k! This is why I think GT3 will die soon. The question is, what category is next? Can you show me some proof of this? I have a hard time believing it, based on previous knowledge that almost every single private chassis manufacturer in Le Mans, is almost always struggling for money.
