I'm on board with a gtlm sending off.
Never happened in American Le Mans Series. Panoz GTR1 did win overall in a sprint race in Sebring in 1998. Plus they and the Champion Porsche came close in several other races. I think those days right now are over. Speed gap between Prototypes and GT cars are too far apart and that is with GTLM still there.

GT racing is undergoing a shift in some ways. Once GTE is gone from Le Mans and WEC as well. I think races like Nurburgring 24 and Spa 24 will become bigger and higher profile than Le Mans (GT speaking only). But that is on Europe side. On USA side it will remain status quo with Daytona and Sebring being biggest GT races even though its not for overall wins as the SRO has been unable to get anything going with their U.S based ICGT race.

Corvette vs Porsche is still very much alive. Not gone away at all. Proton kept it alive this year. And it appears the Petit Le Mans is going to be a big Corvette vs BMW vs Porsche battle. GTLM might get more attention than DPI for this race.

Excellent post, I love that film!

I figured the 'confirmed to be confirmed' phrasing was probably going to result in something vaporous, but one can hope.

Too bad as having another car would have been good all around.
