Grand Touring League

 
Last Updated:

Welcome to the Grand Touring League -- the place where fans of the serious touring Cars can come to show off their rides and their skills in rides that easily rate in the top 10% of the fastest fully-street-legal production-manufactured cars in the world.

When we include the time span of the entirety of the 20th Century, we can find examples of this type and class of car being built all over the world, but true aficionados will point to Germany, Italy, the United States, and the United Kingdom as being the primary sources for this type of ride - and for good reason: 95% of the Grand Touring Cars that were ever built were built in those four countries!

The sub-class of GT car is an engineering feat that presents the sort of ride that eats up highways -- in fact that was what they were made for, and they perform at their best when they are let loose on the open roads. The worse thing you can do to a GT automobile is give it a steady diet of stop signs and lights, speed limits, and situations in which they are forced to stand still.

While they may look like they are going 100 miles per hour while standing still, sitting in traffic is the quickest way to kill this class of ride... And that is why they were never designed or intended to serve as the primary mode of transportation for the typical driver. In fact it is fair to say that anybody who takes this sort of car out for a weekend of casinos and club-hopping is just showing off. That or they have a really small penis. Just saying.

The Grand Touring Class of FM5 Racing is broken up into a total of three sub-classes of events, offering a total of 51 Unique Races spread among them. The racing is split between the Modern Grand Touring, Middle Grand Touring, and Early Grand Touring -- and if you are getting the impression that this level of racing is divided by the age of the Cars being raced, well then you are on the right page!
