Welcome to GT300 Cup, this series will be run as a support to VRR's Super GT championship acrosa the summer. This series features a single class of car but with Pro and Am sub-classes and some different machinery than is normally used. The schedule shares mostly the same venues as our Super GT championship but at reduced distances. This series is aimed to be another driver development initiative and encourages further competition between faster drivers and drivers learning more as they go and still finding more speed. To encourage competition there is a single points scale that both sub-classes will be competing for, however the championships are separate.

Once those competitors have returned, the race will restart with the number of laps that remained in the race prior to when the mass disconnect occured. A manual safety car formation lap will allow everyone to get into their proper grid positions, and then racing will resume.

6.2.4. Once the field is deemed to be in its correct order, the overall race leader will be directed to lead the restart of the race at the end of the current lap.
6.3. In the instance that the event integrity may be compromised due to technical failures, the race director has the ability to call the race once the race leader has completed 75% race distance.
6.4. Under a Safety Car period, all competitors must be single file, with two car lengths minimum between each car for most of the period. Once the field enters the last sector of the track, competitors may bunch up closer to allow for a decent restart.

You will need to pick another car unfortunately since 3 FT1s are already taken. Subaru is also not an option either.
