Could NASCAR do a sports car version of their car?
The Frances and the ACO have a good relationship, so why not? I don't know what it costs to run each particular car, but if the garage 54 entry costs less to run that a GT3/GTD, it might catch on. I mean, why else do it? Go across the world to race in your own class?
One sign the Frances and ACO are cool is the ACO accepting GTP cars. These are based of the original P2 concept, and every DPI was build on a P2 chassis. GTP is just the next evolution of that, and the fact the ACO accepts someone else's idea is a big departure from the way everything used to revolve around their gallic pride. They have been working together since 2016 or so, and maybe now they finally trust each other.
Embracing this garage 54 entry is just good news that the French have dropped the little Napolean act and are willing to be partners. This is all good news for sportscar racing.
