So there's the entry for Estoril separated by PRO, PRO AM, and AM

i think this is the first time there's a pro class no? I thought all were pro am last year. Makes for a good entry but shame the mclarens won't be fighting for the overall win

4 Ferrari's, 4 Lambos, 5 Mercedes

Teo Martin have ramped up to 3 cars too

And of course those two pro class RC F's running there first sprint race where they are in the top class..

Pro Am looks hard to call a favourite, with ten cars all looking pretty even

9 cars in pro should be a good dog fight, Antonio Felix da Costa up against Venturini should be interesting, two well experienced factory guns

5 Am cars should make a nice fight too

Good come back for GT Open. This is the best the series has looked since the peak of the GTE/GT3 battles in 2013. I have not followed GT Open since then. Will give it a look this year though. I still think they should open up the series to a GTE class though.

I used to watch this series a few years back but fell out of interest with the low grid counts. I will watch again now that the numbers are back up. And of course I want to see the Lexus's do a good job . I think the Farnbacher guys will be one's to watch.

Definitely, I don't know what the Emil Frey pairing is like in terms of talent but the Farnbacher boys are always solid

I'm curious how the RC F will fair in general having been so focused on Endurance so far

Emil Frey took the first race victory on their debut race! Was a great battle for the lead in the last 15 minutes among the top 3. Awesome result for Emil Frey and the Lexus. The Farnbacher guys took 4th in the other Lexus behind two McLaren's.

Good result this weekend for the two Lexus cars. Not sure how well the pro / pro am format works yet though

Not particularly flattering for the series' regulars, though.

A lot of the series regulars run in Pro Am. the new addition of the pro cars doesn't make them too pleased I'm sure

While this is true, GT Open is hardly in a position to turn down a relatively high-profile entrant, and a factory-backed effort at that. It makes sense from Lexus to get the car sorted in a lower profile series, but it sets IGTO out as a stepping stone to the inevitable move to SRO series, where the true competition, exposure and prestige is (despite the questionable stewarding of late).

Still, you can only beat what's put in front of you. Hopefully the RC-Fs will maintain this performance throughout the season.

I do think that Lexus's presence along with the grid size made GT Open fun to watch. Good comeback for the series. IGTO is a relevant series for the first time since 2013 during the GTE/GT3 interclass battles.

Having watched the race as well, I'm not saying it wasn't good - I enjoyed it as much as the BGT races this weekend. But we've been here before with GT Open (remember Manthey?) and it's going to take more than a pair of Lexus' to make the series a genuine head-turner in such a crowded GT3 market.

If Farnbacher & Emil Frey don't move on and are joined by other all-pro entries next year, then we're talking.

Kinoshita san, from previous head of the lmp1 Toyota, says the victories were unexpected. He goes on to say that there are only 6 cars running right now, 2 each in Europe, Japan and America. Also confirms that the car wasn't ready (for bop testing?) for the SRO but hopes to be in the Blancpain races later this year.

Craig Dolby and Thomas Enge in Nigel Mustill's Lambo entered at Spa. It would be good to see Craig as he's had good results there but unfortunately I can't get this year. Damn!
