I don't think it completely fixes the issue. Relying on a Vehicle class cheat sheet makes you lose identity to easy eyes and puts you in easy comparisons to everyone else.
My big problem with GT3 DTM isn't GT3 itself, it's the fact there's already so many GT3 in existence. DTM doesn't grasp much compared already established (and better run) GT3 series. Doing the same with MARC is only slightly better.
I don't think DTM care if the Manufacturer are German or not. They let Aston Martin compete in Class One and have let Ferrari and Lamborghini enter
Going the GT3 route, already sees fans comparing it to other series as well as losing its “DTM” identity. Audi, BMW and Mercedes are in.
As you know, V8s DNA was ATCC. Then, the name change to Australian V8s. The name changed again and Accommodated multiple brands. Changed again to what it’s known as now. Silhouette racing isn’t new, but could be an option for costs and participation consistency. As that’s what GT3 afford, a purpose built parity series, GTC is another option.
I‘d rather DTM go back to saloon racing three box production sedans. The Trophy series already have the GT4 cars. As I’m a fan of the past, make an RS5 and C-class GT4 car and keep going with the series. That’s just me.
edit: just came back after the gtp maintenance and that’s exactly how I feel about it. SlowGrayAudi
