I'd like to see us stick to 1 car throughout the season rather than swap.  For those of us who don't race/practice a lot, having one car for a season we improve with the setup and driving the car.. swapping can often feel foreign (for me) and takes a few races to get into the groove of a new car.

I think LMP1/GT3 would be good. The only newish gt3 would be the Audi LMS 2016.. there's no other gt3 class that came out in the last update?
I think the last GT3 was one of the Ferraris, but that came out a little while ago. I have a short list of closely performing GT3 cars in mind already.

Looks like the GP chicken to me, not the GT one.

Not sure about the split category thing, i fear you will just end up with just 2 small grids that are running at the same time taking away the competitiveness for instance the escorts you had a fairly big field that was pretty closely matched so no matter where you were in the field you had to fight for the position with a heap of cars and it rewarded consistency. With two small gt fields i can see 2 groups of 10 if that by seasons end spread apart hot lapping lol. Id prefer to see everyone in the wec cars with restrictors etc i think that be really cool
do you even motorsports?

We did have a trial race some time ago with split classes and it was quite good fun when cars were being lapped several times. It's a challenge for both classes, both of which might be battling for position in their respective classes. It's also something new. I certainly reckon it's worth a try.
