Interesting strategy to tell 50% of your GT3 class that they’ll need to find somewhere else to drive next year. http://www.dailysportscar.com/2020/1...-for-2021.html

I tend to agree with the move from a competition stand point.

Hmmm, of all years to push towards expanding the number of amateur racers, this may not have been it...

As if the enforced amateurishness of GT racing wasn't bad enough already. Heaven forbid that someone should actually have to earn a trophy. Nah, just take the good drivers out.

I don't generally.see the Pro-Am or even Am-Am as enforced amateurishness, I think it's more a case of necessity. Without the Ams, the big business owners who want to go racing, GT racing would be a much smaller pack.

Can't say I quite understand the latest switch fully, but not like anyone is forcing you to watch it. If the 'amateurishness' upsets you then watch the pros racing in WEC, IMSA and.....well all the other GT series bursting at the seams with people being paid to drive.

It's not that the drivers are the problem as such, I just don't agree with all of these sub-classes; GT3 & GT4 are the only classifications necessary. If you want to win something, improve your driving and earn it. I don't see what satisfaction people get from winning a trophy for finishing 7th.

And I already watch WEC & Super GT to get my pro fix.

Unless you cater for at least some of the Ams to win something they won't turn up. You'll still get some of them, but entries definitely be down if you just had trophies for GT3 and GT4.

Guys that run a company during the week and race during the weekend arent going to be able to compete with the guys who are race instructors all week or already racing for factory teams in other series.

Im pretty sure blocking silver cup means that every GT3 competes to win as a Pro-Am. thus solving your issue?

Seems a bit quirky, but he is over 40.

You would have thought having LMP1 experience on your CV puts you at silver at least, but that was 10 years or so ago
