Big Day for GT3 News in the US

What a day for news in the US GT3 ranks.  Flying Lizard ownership changes?  The Lizards still evaluating options in IMSA, PwC and PCA racing but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them running a new Audi R8 (or two).  Lexus F Performance GT3 program shown at SEMA – with Paul Gentilozzi and Scott Pruett, likely missing Daytona and Sebring but running later in the 2016 season (maybe CoTA or even Petit LeMans?).  How about Pruett leaving Ganassi racing for the opportunity but running in the Rolex 24 with another prototype team?  Alex Job unveils livery for the 2016 IMSA season with WeatherTech colors and the brand new Porsche 911GT3-R.   Ben Keating is contemplating another Viper GTD entry and potentially a LeMans visit. Oh yes, IMSA appears to be thinking about adjusting GT3 performance with weight, restrictor and rear wing (!!) changes to distinguish the GTD class from the GTLM class.  Stay tuned…
