For the dozen cars or so it was fantastic racing, lots going on and the longer pitstops for pro drivers made it a lot of fun!
Just could have done with at least half a dozen GT cars to give some bigger variety.

Agreed, you can get away with having a small grid when the cars are as impressive as that and the racing is still good. I assume the Porsche 911 GT3 didn't run in the races as there was nobody for it to play with. It's a shame the GT2 Aston wasn't there (and like you say some more GT cars to bulk out the grid a bit). I'm not sure a grid full of GT3 cars would be good for the series though - there are plenty of other places they can run so it would be good to keep this for the more exotic stuff.

Luckily Brands isn't the longest lap either so they were never too far apart.
It was in the garages but never headed out on track sadly. I had my license handy if they needed a driver...
A few old GTE/GT2 cars would definitely have been nice but would have been even more great to see the DBR9's/550/GTSR GT1's that appeared in the earlier races. Fingers crossed they make it out for more rounds. Only seen 1 GT3 car appear but I agree they shouldn't need to appear. Plenty of series around for them!

Both of the GT2 cars had technical issues which stopped them from racing.

Poor maintenance or simply age?

Crazy considering he had usually run that R8 at The Mitty and it often wasn't fair at all. But only a few times did he have a Pescarolo or Penske RS Spyder to play with. Often just much older cars. Sadly as he was at Spa we only had an old Dyson Lola running that kind of pace until it went WOOSH as turbo AERs are prone to do.

For the sake of accuracy, the Le Mans Classic grid is Peter Auto ‘Global Endurance Legends’, not Masters version. The GEL appearances up to now have been demonstrations, not races, but would guess some cars do PA and Masters......

That wouod have beein interesting if that had been a race although the big attraction such as the Bentley and Toyota probably wouldn't have raced for obvious reasons
