Juntos should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
High quality grids. Two of the most competitive racing series in the world. Face it!

That's a very good point. I was a little disappointed, mainly with the lesser variety in the Pro class with no Nissan, Jaguar or Lexus (or McLaren or Honda) but you are spot on with that assertion.

Does make me wonder why McLaren signed up a bunch of works GT drivers recently.

If anybody wants to see more Nissans and Hondas, watching a few Super GT races this year would a good idea. Actually they even have a McLaren signed up.
It's a shame there are no manufacturers, but I can't complain much about a 50 car grid.

The newest MC 720 is missing. Also Corvette C7, Jaguar, Nissan, Emil Frey racing and so on... Honda, Lexus BMW are for colour.
What actually Rathel is organizing? Lambo cup or high expenses Italian-German gt3 brands club?
Would be more interesting to visit some lakes and sights in Lombardy

So by my count Parente / Barnicoat / Osborne / Kondric donít have any programmes assigned to them yet.

Surely thereís a programme unannounced...

Rob Bell interview on Auto Hebdo.

Ever so lightly suggests some participation in Blancpain, and Spa is likely.

I know the development programme has been pretty late due to the CRP legal process, so perhaps they havent yet completed putting together their programme.

Seeing the glass as half empty is more positive than seeing it as half full but showing up late for the official test can't be a good sign.

People seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. The grid in both series is exceptional, world class level. Comparing Blancpain series to GT Open or British GT must be a joke.

GT Open has both a larger and more diverse grid than Blancpain Sprint this year.....
