And we all know that PWC in North America is just about dead.
I'd also put British GT ahead of Blancpain Sprint right now. The Sprint series is just awful this year.

The Sprint Series level is higher than GT Open and British GT. I hope you agree with that.

Does anyone know what is different in BOP between GT Open and SRO?

It is a higher level...for drivers and teams. As a spectator, it's a significantly lower level. It's not even worth watching this year tbh.

I think part of the Blancpain sprint race problem is the tracks they run at.
Zolder, Misano, Brands Hatch ?

IMO they don't offer many overtaking possibilities.

Put drivers of comparable ability in cars of comparable capabilities (all BOP'ed) and lets them race nose-to-tail on a track with limited overtaking possibilities and what do you get?
Not that exciting races, as far as I am concerned.

In the mean time, GTOpen races at Spa, Paul Ricard, Monza and Silverstone. I think those tracks offer better opportunities for race action.

OK, I'm not convinced about Hungaroring (Blancpain Sprint goes there too) or Barcelona, and I have no idea about Estoril.

Furthermore GTOpen works with success seconds instead of BOP. A well-driven successful car is put back, but can still be the fastest and come through the pack or try to get as high up as possible.

I'm not saying everything is perfect but IMO there's a lot more action in the GTOpen races than there is in Blancpain Sprint.
