Ferrari 296 GT3
The Ferrari 296 GT3, successor to the 488 GT3, is a GT racing car designed for professional and amateur drivers alike. It features a mid-rear-mounted six-cylinder engine reminiscent of the 246 SP, resulting in a lower center of gravity and higher torsional rigidity than the 488 GT3. The vehicle’s aerodynamics provide 20% more downforce, minimizing sensitivity to trim changes. The cabin has been redesigned based on feedback from factory drivers and customers, incorporating a new Formula 1-inspired steering wheel and an optimized driving position for enhanced visibility. The 296 GT3’s suspension system, composed of double wishbone arms both in the front and rear, allows for maximum grip at high speeds, ensuring tire longevity, performance, and reliability.
Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO2
The Squadra Corse of Sant’Agata Bolognese has developed the new Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2, which shares key design elements with the Huracán STO and features rear-wheel drive and a naturally aspirated V10 engine producing 640 hp. The GT3 EVO2 complies with the new FIA 2022 technical regulations and has new aerodynamic solutions and intake systems. The Airscoop design and tail fin from the Huracán STO improve the intake system and vehicle balance. The car’s aerodynamic efficiency is improved with new splitters, diffuser, and underbody, providing more downforce and less sensitivity during braking and cornering. The braking system has been updated with new calipers and pads, and a special TCS and ABS make the car easy to control in low grip conditions.
Porsche 911 GT3 R
Porsche has unveiled the latest generation of the 911 GT3 R, which is set to compete in GT3 series races worldwide. The focus of the design was to improve drivability for professional and amateur drivers and to provide larger performance reserves for different Balance of Performance classifications. The 911 GT3 R engine has a capacity of 4,194 cc, which has boosted the engine’s peak output to approximately 416 kW. The six-speed transmission is taken from the current 911 GT3 and features paddle shifters for faster gear changes. The suspension components were taken from the 911 RSR for improved driveability and less wear on the rear tires. The aerodynamics have also been vastly improved, with an elevated underbody at the front and a rear diffuser that improves downforce without a significant increase in drag.
Circuit Ricardo Tormo is also known as Circuit de Valencia, with the official name being Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo. The circuit is 4.005 km long (2.489 mi) was built in 1999 and it has a capacity of 165,000 spectators. The track is named after Spanish, two-time world champion Grand Prix motorcycle racer Ricardo Tormo. Furthermore, it hosts several major motorsports events of motorbiking and GT racing.This racetrack offers some serious racing action, due to a mixed layout containing both fast and technical corners.
