BMW M3 at the 24 hours of Spa
Qualifying for the 2010 Total 24 Hours of Spa just ended, It will be Ferrari, BMW, Audi in the top three grid spots.
Curiously each manufacturer is in a good position to claim a class win: Ferrari is in GT2, Audi in GT3 and BMW runs in GTN which is for non FIA homologated cars.
What? Yes the M3 was homologated GT2 for LeMans under ACO rules and GT under ALMS rules but to run in FIA GT2 the team would need to run Michelin tires. Dunlop being a BMW technical partner there is a conflict and hence the GTN class.
