the real entry list is only 19 cars when you remove the "FILLER" classes and then it's a GT2 event.......

Better than zero cars and no series. At least the filler classes provide the traffic required for the LMP drivers to work for the win :-)

As has been discussed before the LMPC / Formula Le Mans cars are classed as LMP2 in the opening LMS round at Paul Ricard. Next year LMP2 will be closer to LMPC and LMP1 will be closer to current LMP2. We are in the midst of a transition.

I might agree more that GTC are a "filler" category unless the ALMS presents a clear plan to open it up to other GT3 cars.

The problem with opening it up to GT3 cars is that the GT3s would be quicker than the GT2s. The le mans challenge cars could do with an extra 25-40 bhp to help them out drag the GT2s down the straights.

I'm sure they could find a way, just like they are for LMP combining P1 and P2, just as they did with the Penske Porsches P2s and Audi P1s.

If there is one thing the ALMS is good at is making sure the field is closely matched to make the racing competitive - GT2 is testement to that.

If the prospect of Merc SLS, BMW Z4, Audi R8s and Porsches is possible with small reg tweaks I'm sure they can manage it.

I dunno. Looks real enough to me, no offense.

Just give them some time and a little bit of tweaking and those so-called filler classes will be about as good as GT2 is now, I believe.

Change happens, it is part of the sport. At the start of the ALMS, we simply had LMP. LMP 675 - now LMP2 was brought in to allow privateers to race.

Now we have two new categories. LMP-C, which appears to be very similar to what the new LMP2 will be. GT-C, yes is filler now, but will it still be considered such when it has 2,3,4 marques entered?

I guess time will tell, but I feel that Laguna Seca will be the event to measure the future of this season.
