Lexus Europe confirms that the brands’ support for GT3 racing in Europe is to cease with immediate effect, but cars can return to competition with independently-funded teams without manufacturer's support. Lexus was represented in International GT Open during 2017 season by Emil Frey Racing and Farnbacher Racing. Also, Lexus competed in GT World Challenge.

According to TFT Racing's press release, French squad won't take part in the forthcoming season. The reason is unfavorable balance for their Porsche 911 GT3R. Their main activities: Michelin Le Mans Cup and 24 hours of Spa.

Someone will say that the entry is unconfirmed, but nevertheless Marco Antonelli confirmed the participation of AKM by Antonelli with Pro and Pro-Am cars this season.

Three months for the first race. Not many confirmed entries. Times are challenging.

Yet more doom mongering from Juntos, it GT Open has 10+ cars publicly announced so far, which is pretty much the same as this time last year. And if I remember rightly, GT open didn’t struggle for entries last year..

Entry list is so small. So I'm starting think, that there is need of returning to the roots - multi-class racing. I'm telling not only about GTC/GT4, which number are also not enough. Maybe it's time to allow to compete GTE-spec (GT2) cars along with GT3.

This decision can fill starting grid because of 2 reasonse: Europe is full of GTE cars, participation in GT Open is much cheaper than in ELMS. Or it's absolutlely bad idea?

GT Open previously allowed GTE, and barely any ran in the final year of running GTE.

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

I came across the account of the Swiss racing driver Francois Grimm on Instagram. He is testing a Lamborrghini Gallardo R-EX GT3 by Reiter Engineering. The profile description says "2021 GT Open", and there is also a photo of a racing jumpsuit and a future livery with GT Open stickers. According to Drivers DB, Grimm competed in the Ultimate Cup Series in 2019, as well as in the Swiss Porsche Cups.
