Le Mans 2015 GT class preview


The GTE (Grand Touring Endurance) class is for two-door production sports cars powered by a manufacturer with a dealer network.

In regards to specifications, engine size for the GT cars is limited to 5.5L for non-turbo and 4L for turbo-charged engines, and the car must weight over 1245kg with 90L fuel capacity.
