Hardly suprising this year.

The GT Open Cup has been boring racing with small grids since its inception. I think it makes sense to add it to the main series while numbers are low.

GT Open does well usually for race by race entries, and the current climate makes that harder, so they seem to be taking a hit.

Despite the low grid counts the racing is still good, and I dont doubt grids will grow again next year.

RE: silverstone, big shame, but I think Brexit may have something to do with it, the WEC isnt doing a UK round either, and GTWC havent announced Silverstone yet.

Its not looking like us Brits will get to see much International GT sportscar racing on home soil in 21. Currently only the GTWC Sprint races at Brands scheduled

Some interesting facts about forthcoming race 2 at Spa-Francorchamps. Finally Teo Martin Motorsport began to combine stints Vincent Abril and Henrique Chaves. In the first race, they raced at the same time. Obviously, for TMM, the best match-up is Ramos-Prette and Abril-Chaves at the same time on track.

Then the Portuguese (obviously, by the team's decision) allowed Al-Harty to pass himself in third place, so as not to get a 10-second handicap. Thus, he lost points, allowed the Monegasques one point in the overall standings, but avoided a handicap. And today, he almost took pole, but his time was deleted.

Well, Teo Martin Motorsport's tactics worked. After avoiding a handicap after yesterday's race, Chaves maintained his position in the battle with Eastwood in the first half of the race, and in the second Ramos did not lose his lead. Thanks to his experience, he quickly and successfully overtook GT4/GTC.

Now the advantage of Chaves and Ramos over Prette and Abril is 8 points.

Miguel Ramos dedicated his victory to the father of his former team-mate and current rival Fabrizio Crestani. His father is in the hospital.

Meanwhile, Vincent Abril broke the record at Spa-Francorcamps for GT3 and even GTE cars.

Well that got my attention. The all time GT lap record at Spa set by a Ferrari 488.....GT3 car. Well that aspect of GT "Open" is good. As they let the cars run to their best ability rather than use BoP.

I still think the series would be better if they allow GTE cars to run. I recommend they do this for 2021.

I doubt they will ever return to GTE. Now even manufacturers close or reduce their programs, and the class is slowly dying. GTE and GT3 are getting closer to each other. For example, the new Ferrari Evo and Aston Martin Vantage V8 were created with the aim that teams could rebuild their car from one modification to another in a short time. TF Sport won with its red Vantage GTE at the 24 hours of Le Mans, and also rides it in GT3. And allowing an entire class is pointless. You should at least get a good GT3 grid. And those who can afford to change modifications will always find an opportunity.

And more, GT Open also has a BoP, but it is calculated differently (not like SRO).

I hope, you understood my English.

Is that the exact same chassis TF Sport runs with the WEC and GT Open?

I think it's the same chassis in this red livery. Even in the photo in social networks, they have one red Vantage.

Read this article about converting:

Teams reuse old cars all the time, so it wouldn’t surprise me. That article should back it up or at least give some evidence
