We had the first test with the updated version of the Corvette C7.R last week at Sebring and things went pretty well. It’s quite a bit different than last year’s car, but I think everybody was pretty happy with it.
The new technical regulations for 2015 will make the GTLM cars faster with extra horsepower but mainly more downforce. So it is going to be interesting to see how the balance between the GTLM and the GTD cars works out next year.
The GT3 cars that are coming in to the GTD class, all of those are pretty fast and they have a lot of horsepower, so I think we’ll be quick in different areas.
They’ll be fast down the straights and we’ll be fast in the corners. I don’t know how much of a difference it’s going to make.
It’s always good news for a series when a big manufacturer like that comes in. I’m sure it’s going to be a fantastic battle.
It will be interesting to see where the Ford is and how it stacks up. Everybody at the moment thinks they are going to come in and be strong and, I have to admit, that car does look a bit special.
