GT4 Sprint merges with GT2, GT3 to form a new Bronze only 40 min race with the GTWC America branding to play on the on World Challenge ideas. Unfortunately World Challenge was about building your own car not buying off the shelf.

At least in the GT class, the fields where teams built their own cars were bad as well. The 2013 finale at Houston had what 4 PWC GT cars and 2 Audi R8 GT3s from GMG?

Could they have kept GTS where teams built their own cars and never gone the GT4 route? Maybe, but GT4 seems to be the much better option. GTS at Houston had 19 cars. GT4 SprintX is consistently in the low to mid 20s.

What I am surprised by is that the SRO hasn't done more to reduce costs for GT3 teams - go to 60 minute races to reduce tire, refueling and crew costs, and completely differentiate from IMSA's longer format. Make your claim that GT World Challenge America is the place to come for cost effective GT3 racing where you'll win overall and go with that mindset.

Oh no, I agree with your premise. I'm mocking the idea that a GT3/4 car is anything like the million dollar mustang and other shop built cars. The last few seasons weren't any good as cars became too much for teams to build up on their own. And Caddy killed it off joining and building insane cars no one else could compete with.

The PWC/GTWC America is a great example of a series that was doing awesome and then flushed it down the toilet. Too much tinkering of the format, having standing starts with cars that can't do that (one reason why Caddy dominated), the way they handled safety car periods. I'm sure there are others. Probably thought there was this huge market for racers who wanted to race with GT3 cars that did not come to fruition. Instead they opted for GT4 or LMP3 or nothing. IMSA too....as adopting sprint cup series has been a great move. Brought in Compass, Hardpoint, and Gradient

I think it honestly just comes down to cost and how its risen too high. Would be nice to get back to 2015/2016 levels

Indeed that is correct. Favorite year was the one where KPax had the McLarens and the Magnus Audi ran in the series. Forgot which one that was. But when Mike Hedlund stepped away from the KPax McLaren, the series took a nose dive after that. Got to make Mike happy if you want a good racing series.

SRO America 2021

K-Pax to Lamborghini for GTWC America in 2021!

They’ve covered their fair share of manufacturers over the years! I’m sure they will get to grips with that Lamborghini pretty quickly

Edit- 2 car pro entry!

Such a shame, that they throw a towel on Continentals, but it's understandable considering situation. Let's hope Italians will send some good drivers to help.

It looks more and more likely we'll have quite decent grid then.
