Mid-season changes

  • Just after the first race, C-Force Racing Asia switched from a BMW M6 GT3 to a Lamborghini Huracán GT3.
  • Similar to C-Force Racing Asia, Jonatas Berto and SkZoomKo switched off the apparently uncompetitive Nissan GT-R GT3 to a Porsche 911 GT3 R and a Lamborghini Huracán GT3 respectievly after round three.
  • Also after round three, Alessandro Valente opted to switch to the GT300 class. Constantin Grimminger made the same switch into the different direction, sporting a BMW M6 GT3 after round three.
