I watched both races. Good stuff! It was great to see the Emira out on the track. I was surprised though at how much smaller it appeared to be than the cars behind it. Going to be fun to see GT4 Emiras out there running with all the others when that time comes.

Yeah, it looks tiny! I have to keep reminding myself those are 20” wheels.

I guess that’s a result of perfectly balanced design… exacting proportions tend to reduce the visual bulk and apparent size…

That's a normal thing. Those GT3 cars are complete monsters. For a comparison:

The M4 is roughly 40cm longer than the Emira and still looks tiny. The GT3 cars are 20 to 30 cm wider than their road going siblings and slammed down as far as possible. Another thing is that especially cars like the M4 or the Bentley Continental are still quite tall, so they appear bigger than the Emira in every dimension. Even the AMG GT3 that was chasing it is 2cm taller than the Emira even though it is close to scratching the tarmac.
