What Is GT3 ?

St├ęphane Ratel's 2005 FIA GT Championship created the GT3 class. It was intended as a cheaper alternative to racing where manufacturers and privateer teams could operate cars on an even playing field.

Reason For Penalty

The third race safety car caused the issue. Race control ordered the field to proceed into the pitlane to avoid the start-finish straight crash. Two automobiles followed this order, while the rest did not.

Who Would Have Actually Won?

D'station Racing's Aston Martin would have won. Satoshi Hoshino and Tomonobu Fujii were also fined ten seconds post-race for an illegal overtake.
