https://supergtworld.wordpress.com/...ystem-grid-penalties-for-driving-infractions/ Part 2 of the changes in the 2017 sporting regulations, which detail the new six-stage "Seed Rights" system and changes to the Driving Moral Hazard System which dictates driver conduct. The new Seed Rights are grouped into three different categories: A-Seed: Includes all GT500 teams, and the top 18 teams in GT300 based on last year's Teams' Championship results. B-Seed: Includes 1) International teams (Toyota Team Thailand), 2) long-tenured teams that have run since 2008 (Cars Tokai Dream28, Team Mach, Tomei Sports), and 3) highest ranked remaining teams in GT300 until 42 cars have been seeded. C-Seed: Includes 1) All other remaining tenured teams not in the A or B-Seed groups, and 2) All new teams. New teams can acquire the higher-priority Seed Rights from an existing team that's ceasing operations, similar to the Charter system in NASCAR or the REC in Supercars. These groups will be re-ordered after the 2017 season, based on each team's best six out of eight results. Don't worry, I didn't really get my head around these changes at 6 AM this morning - and I knew something like this had been coming for months!
