The "24 Hours of Le Mans" technical regulations distinguish two major car families: The "Prototypes" and "Grand Touring", each of which is split into two parts. Each category fights rigorously for victory in its class.
The "Prototype" category refers to cars exclusively developed for competition on track and which meet the technical regulations of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest. The performance levels and technological development make this category overeign in endurance.
The "Grand Touring" category features cars derived from models homologated for road use and which can be purchased. A minimum of 100 road cars must be built by the major car manufacturers and a minimum of 25 for the smaller makes. Easily identifiable by the public, the GTs always achieve great success.
To go further on this....No you cant race LMP cars such as 2RWD solid rear axle Tamiya cars or WGT type cars in USGT. Yes you can race Prototype type close cockpit bodies in USGT. There is not enough racers to break this class into two classifications just based off of body. Some of the legal GT style bodies from HPI and Tamiya below here are very close in shape to this McAllister body so there is no reason to not allow this body.
