As my post above says, we have the same number of announced entries this time of year as we did last year.

People freak out every year at grid numbers being low 2-3 months before the season starts.

You have to wait for teams to announce their entries in line with their sponsorship obligations and driver signings.

Grid count in early February is absolutely zero reflection on how many cars will be on track at the start of the season. That applies for every series. GTWC Europe have barely announced any cars yet, doesn’t mean they will struggle for grid count
You are right about the timing. Cars will come in right before it starts. However, if GT Open wants to distinguish themselves from SRO and ADAC, then they should allow GTE cars to run. In early 2010's that was the reason why the series got my attention. I wanted to see GTE and GT3 cars on the same track at the same time and compare them. IMSA has that but they BoP the GTD class down intentionally I think. Plus they have the tire difference between GTLM and GTD....won't be an issue after this year of course :-)

That's it. That's what I meant: the fact that cars from different classes compete together is very interesting. Unfortunately, times have changed

It seems, Teo Martin Motorsport plans to compete in GTWC as well as GT Open. There will be two intersections in the calendars.

Looks like Gt Open clashes with 2x Sprint rounds of GTWC currently, so means they can run Endurance without clashes.

That is of course if the current calendars remaining the same.

Interestingly the other big Mclaren team- Optimum are also planning on running GTWC and GT Open

The full-season single Am campaign is finally confirmed. And here we have upgraded Lamborghini Gallardo GT3 R-EX developed by Reiter Engineering, which reinforced N/A V10 engine, improved exhaust, wing and diffuser. Also, body got wider (+13 cm) and aluminium panels were replaced by carbon-fibre.
