In broad strokes:

There are four different classes in the United SportsCar Championship series, featuring two sports prototype categories and two grand tourer classes:

  • Prototype (P): the flagship class, combining Grand-Am Daytona Prototype with the American Le Mans Series P2 prototype and DeltaWing cars, built to 2013 specifications.
  • Prototype Challenge (PC): a spec class carried over directly from the American Le Mans Series, featuring Le Mans Prototype Challenge cars built by Oreca with engines supplied by Chevrolet and tires from Continental.
  • GT Le Mans (GTLM): a continuation of the ALMS GT class, consisting of cars matching the Automobile Club de l'Ouest's GTE specification.
  • GT Daytona (GTD): a class that combines the Grand-Am GT & GX classes with the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars from the ALMS GTC class. Group GT3 cars will be allowed entry into this class.

Nice set of shots John, really like the profile shots and the interesting tyre shot. The Rebellion looks nice with perfect side profile too.

Tire shot is beast. The eyes in 4 are killer. You knew this though.

Guess you didn't want to post the water droplet shot I took ;)

Keep looking for your name in the EXIF data... must be mispelled or something. ;)
