Seems like it's been ages since a announcement for this series, but finally we have one (start of a flurry I imagine!)

FFF racing team by ACM with a two car lineup:

One Huracan GT3 for Andrea Calderelli and Sean Fu Songyang, and one McLaren 650s GT3 for Hiroshi Hamiguichi and a pro driver TBA (maybe a McLaren factory or academy driver)

Nice to see a team taking a multi-mark approach of a Lambo and McLaren, and the cars look great too.

FFF will be doing the Euro super Trofeo this year as well as the GT3 cup, no mention of a GT Asia return, although it is marked on the calendar in their website

The official test is supposed to happen tomorrow. And we still haven't received entry lists from ACO lol.

Btw bunch of AF Corse Ferraris have been announced (of course) but whatever it's the P3 field I'm waiting for. Even so, might the GT3 portion of this be a flop in numbers...

Pretty small GT3 grid in terms of announcements so far, I only know of the following:

3x AF corse Ferraris
1x Johnny Mowlems Ferrari, forgot the team
1x TF Sport Aston Martin
1x FFF racing Lamborghini
1x FFF racing McLaren

So... 7??? Seems crazy to have so few announcement so close to the test day

9 is very disappointing. I was hoping for more given the amount of GT3 cars there are in the wild.

Only 9 cars because the series is only open to teams with an 'F' in their name: AF, FF, FFF, TF.

And a lot of teams run multiples. Plus the GT3 entries in ELMS were just expected to all move to this Cup, which hasn't happened. Disappointed as I was really looking forward to this series.

Looking at the (pitiful) GT3 charts from the HTTT tests, looks like ACO have bopped them down from last year despite them not competing with LMGTE anymorè... you know they are quite bit down on hp from last year in the maximum speed charts. So maybe at the LM support round, the LMP3s don't have such big straight line speed disadvantage (@ Mulsanne) against them like they traditionally seemed to have. There is still some gap, but not as big. And of course, there will probably be further adjustments between the classes.

The regs state an event may be cancelled if less than 10 cars are entered. Anyone else think that ACO may actually cancel the whole season now with the awful turnup, apart from the LM round of course?

I think we are going to peak at 9-10.... Pointless.

GT Open numbers massively up, Blancpain Stonger than ever, Brit GT, ADAC GT, and so on, and so on...

Perhaps if you're right about GT3 being BOPd down by ACO, no GT3 customers are keen on their cars being slowed to make ACO's LMP3 cars look better

“The key here though, as elsewhere in GT3, is going to be Balance of Performance. Here for instance we are around 12 km/h down on straight line speed compared to the same car in SRO BoP trim (265 km/h to 277)."
