There are certain events where the low entry numbers don't really make sense. This is one of them. How is it that SRO, which has the ability to pull cars from Blancpain Europe and Asia, has combined with Pirelli World Challenge, which has a decent car list, has managed to pull together such a small grid?

Similar story for the Le Mans Cup in Europe. Blancpain has too many entries to cope with, so has Am series and classes all over the place. 24H Series pulls plenty of GT3 entries. Yet the Le Mans Cup has a tour of some great European circuits, including a very rare chance for a true amateur to race at Le Mans on race day morning...and yet gets about 5 cars.

There are clearly reasons for it, but this race should've pulled more. Of course any number of cars at Laguna Seca is preferable to any number of cars at CoTA, but I don't see why there can't be 30-40 cars at Laguna Seca given the cars involved.
