Three cars have now been converted to GTE spec
All three will race Le Mans in less than two weeks.
Do you know which are these 3 cars? And where were they racing?
I am sure at Le Mans next week in GT AM
According to John Dagys they are both scuderia corsa cars and jmw's single entry.
Will be interesting in the future with this cars they changed between GT3 and GTE.
What will be interesting in the future?
Le Mans participation will be the important thing in the future... ��
One of the Scuderia Corsa 488s was a Kessel 488 GT3
Both cars are from the "first" series GT3s
JMW car is from the "second" series.
I assume Kessel are supporting Scuderia Corsa at LM again this year?
I have some photos when the car was new at Michelotto in 2016 (Kessel), all black.
Now its white No. 62 (probably wrapped)
No LM team bought the Fox Motorsport car.
Kessel is like the Swiss AF Corse
Maintain, (re)built. Kessel is a partner of Ferrari GT Competition department.
Kessel can be found in almost all factory documents.
Hoyle-Fox car run by FF Corse? Was for sale?
Yes and just sold
Kessel is NOT like, or near AF Corse!
YES THEY ARE
never and they will never be...
They are big in GT3, but in GT2 only AF Corse counts, you know this Tom.
Where did I talk about GT2 only Heinz?
I am talking about the racing team AND Kessel Racing Car.
Factory authorized / Michelotto partner. Why would there be else engineer names in the Michelotto/Ferrari documents.
You need to talk to the management of Michelotto or Ferrari Competizioni GT.
They maintain the cars for Scuderia Corsa, winner of GTam in 2016 and 3rd GTam 2015.
Your good ;-)
Thanks for explaining this to me, I did not knowed this all.
We go away from the beginning of the thread, what is a good thread becouse it's the first time that a Switch GT3/GT2 is possible.
Good idea to start the thread.
Converted cars do not have any effect on future value. The only thing what matters is the palmares.
F40 road cars haven been converted to LM and GTE.
If JMW wins GT-Am at LM it will be worth more than a 4th placed Ferrari in GT-Pro
JMW won GT-am!!
Ferrari 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th.... now that is impressive
Yes it is!
GTpro....not the pace of the Astons, Porsches, Vettes
Rigon said: we just miss some speed
As a member of AF Corse, I was there with the team. We have one issue and one only: the BoP restricts our top speed by 9km/h compared to all the other pro cars, so on a circuit like Le Mans we were sitting ducks. James "overdrove" trying to compensate for this and ended up losing the car.
Ford sandbagged thru qualifying and once the BoP was definitive after 17:30 on Friday, they showed a true turn of speed during Saturday morning's warm up. Politics and money win. Dave Richards keeps on going with a 6 year old car and gets the BoP that allows him to be in front.
Honest question: How come AF Corse didn't sand bag? 9km/h doesn't seem like much (I am likely wrong though), would you not be able to pull the same tricks and work it so you gain that speed back come race time?
