Nah, *real* GT1 was mid- to late-90s. McLaren F1 GTR, Porsche 911 GT1, Mercedes CLK.

Where has a GT3 car achieved a 2.15 in Spa-Francorchamps? I know this is a time that should be possible in a GT3 car but the BES uses quite a hard tyre compound.

21 may 2016 International GT Open with Michelin customers tires. I think a GT3 with the GTE confidential tires = 2'14''

This is unreal, but you know what's better... allowing GT500 cars in this World Cup, albeit detuned.

Preemptive for the revocation of LMP1 using the term.

Sanna: No Decision on Lamborghini GTE Program.
Head of Lamborghini Motorsport Giorgio Sanna has admitted plans for the manufacturer to eventually expand beyond GT3, but not yet officially confirming the presence of a GTE program that has been rumored to start by as early as 2019.
Sanna said a decision to enter the GTE ranks could depend on the status of the latest round of GT Convergence talks, which resumed this summer.

Not sure if there is a need for GT cars to be faster overall than they are now. With the new LMP2 formula in place, that class will be so much faster now. We don't have a scenario anymore where in theory if you could bump the GT cars a little then we can have a overall fight between LMP and GT cars like in the 1990's at Le Mans. Its kinda too bad in a ways but at least the categories won't ever get tangled with each other anymore. This is especially going to be true once LMPC goes away for good in IMSA.

Maybe there could be some interclass mess ups between GT and LMP3 still in ELMS but that is limited too since ELMS GT is really GTE Am. It would be a huge mess if you ever had a GTE Pro and an LMP3 class in the same race but I don't think you have that anywhere right now. That is a good thing. GTLM and LMPC in IMSA is the closest to that and we won't have to deal with that more much longer. By my count there are only 7 races in 2017 were GTLM and LMPC are on the same grid.

I do not agree with you, I would like to see GTE much faster than now, In the overall fight or even at the level of the LMP2.
The overall fight between LMP and GT cars in the 1990's was fantastic and the fight between LMP1 and LMP2 in the ALMS was fantastic too.
I would like to see overall categories fights again.

I think you misinterpreted me a little bit. I do agree with you 100% but I am not sure you can raise GTE or GT3 cars to the level of the DPI/2017 LMP2 levels though. The 2016 LMP2's perhaps. But since that is not the case anymore and due to the fact that IMSA and WEC does not have a PC or P3 to worry about anymore. Then lets not go over the top and try to stabilize both GTE/LM and GTD for the rest of the decade.

But yeah remember the 2015 Petit Le Mans when the rain was the great equalizer. We saw genuine battles on track between GTLM and DP's and it that got me so pumped. I was hoping that IMSA would take a queue from that and let the classes get closer together in speed for 2016 but that did not happen. I think all of us who watched that day were cheering for a GT car to win and they did!

I'm sure Mr. Hedlund would have a lot to say and it would be great to hear. I recall him talking about driving an LMPC car in the middle of the GTLM lead fight at Watkins Glen in 2014. That was a very fascinating story. Love hearing his commentary about interclass activity on-track. Always gets my attention.
