Lol!!

Regarding lap times: I don't think they're as close as they looked at Barcelona. James is one of the best Bronze drivers in the world, period. He was racing against some of the slowest Bronze drivers. It's no offense meant for the drivers in the Blancpain Sports Club series, but it's a fact and it's why they don't run in Sprint or Endurance.

Having a slower (lap time) class with the least experienced/skilled drivers being the fastest on the straights (by far) is a recipe for terrible racing. I've been on both sides of that coin and it sucks.

Personally, I don't understand the current GT2 class/cars and it has no appeal to me as a racer. I guess in Europe there were too many GT3 cars so they figured they'd create a new class for the guys that just want to show up and pound around in a cool car but not ever race against Pro's?

For GMG I get it because it's a fit for some of their customers, so they're taking it on. I doubt it'll take off as a class in the US though. But that's just my opinion of course.

That's what I figured, it seems like the old PC vs GTLM, or GTLm vs GTD at Daytona problem in IMSA. The lap times may be different but the same problems rear their ugly heads, top speed vs cornering. Fun with all pro drivers in the same class. Not so much when it's 2 different classes and 2 different ideas.

I could see them merged for top tier club races but I think they need to be split for sprint and pro series. I do wonder about the 24 hour events and what they may do with GT2 cars. Could be interesting to follow and see, especially as more come out. But also if an owner could get the support to run what appears to be a sprint minded car in an enduro.
