    With Ford and Chevy into the GT4 game, it's sad that Dodge isn't getting in on this at this point. A challenger/Charger GT4 would be fun to see.

    There may be a privateer GT4 spec Challenger in this thread. Can't remember if I posted it or another member.

    The Challenger is easily the oldest design of the three cars you mention & I think they would have trouble getting the car on a diet and to a competitive weight.

    Besides that, the new parent company that has taken over Dodge has pulled the pin on the SRT Division. Any GT4 effort would have to be a privately funded affair with no factory backing. The chances of that happening are slim at the very best.

    Chris Forsberg Racing (of Formula Drift fame) put together a 370Z to race in the Grid Life GLTC class with Bryan Heitkotter behind the wheel and they are racing this weekend at COTA. One race today (running as I type this) and 3 more on Sunday. Live stream on the Global Time Attack channel.

    A shame they are only going to show one Excel race. I was looking forward to those.

    EDIT: Yeeesssshh, nevermind. Today's races were a flop unfortunately.

    Thought there was supposed to be some Mustangs. Shame they didn't make it.

    Just for British GT. The lone Mustang that did debut in the GT4 European Series, was a one off at Paul Ricard. It's a good car, not sure why noone are using it.

    These Production cars almost seem like the new Group A.

    With that honestly, it wouldn't be that bad. A massive GT4 field for endurance races around the world would be pretty cool.

    Cool to see United Autosports on the grid. Disappointing though that there's only going to be two Alpine's and two Toyota's.

    Trying to catch up on the 6 hour but the motorsport.tv feed keeps stopping to buffer every few minutes and it's so annoying that I'm probably not going to finish. Anyone else had this issue? It's not my internet, I have 1GB fiber...

    Man, a 47 car grid is brilliant stuff. Wasn't aware that the season was starting this weekend. Looking forward to it.

    Yeah, last year's 20 car grids seem like it never happened. I take it everyone are keen to go racing. ;) Can't wait for the weekend to hurry up.

    Edit: Also just noticing no X-Bows are returning.
