The FIA has continued talks for ‘harmonization’ across the GTE and GT3 platforms, with a set of technical measures having been proposed to manufacturers.

The latest development was revealed during Wednesday’s World Motor Sport Council Meeting in Paris, which sees a further step towards a potential correlation between the two GT formulas.

It comes nearly four years after GT Convergence talks were called off, following proposals for a single platform with two tiers of performance levels.

While details on the proposed measures have yet to be confirmed, it’s understood any significant changes to the technical regulations are unlikely until 2022 at the earliest, at the start of a new homologation period.

The next homologation period for GTE and GT3, to run from 2019-21, is poised to remain relatively unchanged to the current set of regulations.

Unlike GT Convergence, which was to see a single platform, it’s believed the FIA’s latest proposal could keep both GTE and GT3 as separate classes but allow for an easier exchange between platforms.
