Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Thanks Bob and Sean

I've always liked the Pan Cars on a road course, I keep watching to see if it takes off anywhere...

The OCRC and the WEST COAST Track I'd think could both be good WGT tracks from the pics I've seen. (Both are too far SOUTH for me to go watch though )

Armaan,

The "World GT" cars are a On-Road PAN CAR. There are rules that call for using 'Spec' compound tires, and here's a pic of one of the body types.

World GT in SoCal? OCRC is offering it as one of the official classes for their Vegas Warm Up Race later this month. It's a one day event, and standard IIC WGT rules apply (Jaco Spec foams, Jack the Gripper, 1S hard case Lipo, 930 grams minimum weight, etc).

Hope to see some WGT racers there!
