Touring car race series, Germany’s DTM and Japan's Super GT will be going into a regulation merger for 2020 season. This will see them having several combined races. The regulation which is named Class 1 states that the cars must be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4s, the engine should be mounted in front and should also be a rear-wheel drive. The engine is to deliver 620 horsepower with a top speed that's limited to 186 mph.

And then we have the Honda NSX-GT. This race car is mid-engine, likewise its predecessor. To meet up with the new regulations, Naijacarnews gathered that Nissan moved the car's engine from the back to the front. However, the mid-engine proportions were retained.
