Getting run over by factory guys in GT3s who don't have to worry about paying bills for damaged cars is no fun, I guess. And it probably makes a difference if there are 15 or 30 GT3s to watch out for.

4 KTMs
2 Audis
2 Mclarens
4 Ginettas
1 Aston Martin
2 BMWs

We probably won't see many, while Production cars allows very similar cars to compete in their series.

Last year 888 had a lot of set up problems at 12 Hour.A factory AMG driver is going to be able to help with set up issues a lot more than Lowndes would be able to.

It's is a mouth watering lineup. Maybe this is Parente's swansong in a Macca before he moves on to the Bentleys
