Because the Senna is only a single 500 car run....

I'd think if they do a GTE any time soon it'll be based off the 720s, likely going down the Ferrari route of being able to convert from GT3 to GTE... if that's possible on the 720s...


Also, aren't they supposedly more interested in global LMP1 future specs?

Exactly my thoughts. Why base a GTE off this when they're already doing a new 720S GT3? That's also a much better looking car I might add as well! This "Senna" is appalling to look at.

BMW was forced to redesign the M8 after one manufacturer objected to its initial plans:

So they are now 5 months behind and are asking for help at Daytona via BOP

Then we missed seeing the super extreme BMW that was rumored because it was not approved.

They got a little bit of help! Running 1240kg, same as the Vette and some boost changes iirc. Lets see what comes of that.

Read, last spring/summer, that they asked for a waiver to allow chopping (part of) the roof!

Risi Competizione has announced that it will be entering the 2018 Le Mans 24 Hours in the GTE Am class, with a Ferrari 488 GTE.
The programme is going to be run with Ben Keating and Keating Motorsports.

Will this be the only entry of Risi or will they have another car in GTE Pro?

It wouldn't surprise me if it was their only entry, unfortunately.

Agreed since at Daytona the entire squard for Risi is AF Corse drivers. Not a bad thing because they should automatically be elevated to the favorite to win GTE Am.

I think you are right and I also do not see that Risi is in many events more than Sebring.

If the Super GT guys don't want to run in DTM and they say ok, we're going to GTE, I think it's a good idea. Instead of missing Mercedes, Porsche's interest might make them enter. Then Super GT can drop the current ugly cars and either go back to something like before or maybe follow suit with a 'Super' GTE
