The FIA GT series kicked off its season this week with the official test days at the Paul Ricard circuit in the south of France. Nearly fifty cars are participating, including plenty of familiar faces like the Maserati MC12, Chevrolet Corvette, and Saleen S7R, Ferrari F430 and the Porsche GT3 RSR. New to the grid in GT1 are Nissan's GT-R entry and Matech Racing's Ford GT, both of which are the first cars to meet the FIA's 2010 regulations. In the GT3 category, Audi's R8 LMS joined fellow new entries like Alpina's B6 GT3 and the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. The first race of the season is scheduled for Silverstone at the start of next month that will include the FIA GT Championship, FIA GT3 European Championship, GT4 European Cup, and the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo. Until then, enjoy the high-res galleries below.
