There seems, still, to be a few IFs here, pre-Feb.26 series start but: Stefane Ratel, the "R" in BPR Organization, wants to make sure that non-Porsche teams look seriously at the alternatives, ie. his two-car F40 team, sponsored by Aldix Computers.
BPR insists that all cars be homologated for road use, ie. McLaren F1 GTR will be homologated Feb.1 -- but the new SARD Toyota MC8 will have to wait for production prior to acceptance in the series.
According to BPR, the competition should include:
- 17 Porsches - 6 McLaren F1 GTRs - 6 Jaguar XJ220s - 6 Ferraris (F40s & 355s) - 2 Bugattis - 2 Toyota MC8 - ? Venturis - 1? Lamboghini Diablo - 1 Morgan Plus 8
