Of course, a strict interpretation of the rules might suggest that a P car cannot be run in PGT since its adjusted engine size is less than 2650, but that hasn't stopped people before... ;-)

The example of Gp5 vs Gp2 isn't the same, since there is no bottom limit to Gp5 displacement. Gp2 is a more restrictive subset of Gp5, and therefore a Gp2 car is eligible to run in Gp5.

The P/PGT rules have been as above for many years. The accepted practice seems to be to allow a P car to run as a PGT car, but it certainly could be protested based on the rules.

Of course, none of this helps to find a PGT car to run Rim with...
