That's a pretty poor number of GT3s tbh. I'm surprised at this - there must be something stopping teams signing up, because even GT Open has a decent grid. So why not this? It has a support race at Le Mans on the Saturday, but even that isn't enough to bring the cars? So what trick is the ACO missing?

You need to have an enormous ego to go racing GT3 in Michelin Le Mans Cup. There is plenty of healthy GT3 racing around Europe, so why are you joining to a 6 car series? It is hard to soar like an eagle when surrounded by turkeys.

No other GT3 series races at Le Mans though. How many in Europe have mixed class with prototypes?

What is the point to race behind the pack?

I'm guessing there must be something that keeps all those GTLM cars turning up to races where they're behind the pack.

I didn't realise the GTLM class was an illusion. I always thought it was real!

Maybe single class racing would be more suited to your tastes.

The problem is that when you have the ELMS, Blancpain and GT Open, why enter a GT3 in a series with minimal coverage and less prestige like the Le Mans Cup?

I think GT3 guys only want to enter the Le Mans race, then run a full season of British GT, Gt Open, Blancpain etc, instead of a full season in a pretty pointless series like LM GT CUP
