Got to say Iíve enjoyed the GT2 demo racing this weekend, the cars see. Well suited to Amís allowing for confidence, and decent racing

Give us 20+ car fields and more than 4-5 chassis and I think thereís a great formula there

Iíve always liked Am only racing, less experience causes more variables, mistakes and essentially in theory more racing

The 935 tribute cars look good. The GT2s look like 911 Cup cars. Pretty underwhelming. Iím not sure the racing world needs more 911 variants tbh.

Remember that is the only time you will ever see the GT2 911 running in a 911 only race.

Audi are already confirmed, to be joined by at least one other manufacturer in 2020, and possibly a total of 6 manufacturers by end of 2020.

The Audi definitely looks more exciting than the 911

Porsche Motorsport keeps bagging money with this, and that's what matters to them. Making money isn't hard in itself... What's hard is to earn it doing something worth devoting oneís life to.

Are you able to breathe with your high horse being that high an altitude?

Porsche make cars for customers to buy. Customers buy them. Customers race them. Customers are happy.

Get back to me when your money-making scheme makes a positive impact on the world.

Completely off topic. I was expecting more from you, specially knowing that a 3rd GT2 car will be presented at Barcelona.

Porsche at least race a different car in GT4.

Great though the GT2 Audi R8 looks, it now means that Audi race the same 13-year old car in GT2, 3 and 4.

I hope that GT2 means that GT4 can become the place to race smaller sports and coupes, like the 718, Alpine, Ginetta etc, rather than tame versions of AMG, R8 and Vantage supercars.

Just back at our apartment after spa ...... the second GT2 race on saturday was a bit more of a procession but still entertaining - well done to Chris Hoy agin - he proved that he is a 'racer' once again.

Have to agree that if Porsche (or whoever) build these cars, customers buy them and want to race them, who are we to complain?
Porsche have put a fair bit of money into gt2/3 & 4 over the last two seasons, and yes, they have made money out of it, but so what? They are a business after all.

From my perspective - fair play to them and good to see them back and especially supporting a new initiative!

DSC believes that Ferrari is the next GT2 car.
Lamborghini, Mercedes AMG, McLaren, and Aston Martin, all of those are believed to be working on GT2 versions of the same base cars that furnish their current customer GT3 efforts.

I believe Rob Bell has confirmed at some point this year that McLaren are working on another race car, I canít remember where it was but he was being interviewed in the booth during a race.

My bet is the Barcelona announcement will be by McLaren, Ferrari or Lamborghini.

Mercedes said not long ago they wonít be preparing a GT2 for the start of 2020.

KTM should be firmly counted In the mix too but seems the production car quantity rule is holding them up for now

I think Lamborghini had stated they aren't yet working on a GT2 project. Think they have a great base and wouldn't be surprised to see one but do they want to take customers from Super Trofeo? Although I'm guessing GT2 will have a few tracks some Ams really want.

According to John Dagys, McLaren may announce its GT2 car at the Blancpain GT Barcelona race.
