It would mess up the graphical continuity of GT/GT2/GTE if they were split up middle way through the statistics, that's why I never tend to put them separately here or anywhere else. And I never agreed with the sub class mentality anyway, they are the same cars. Even the "1 year old car rule" in AM has been given waivers several times

For the same reasons of historical continuity and actual facts, if there happens to be a neutered CLM LMP1 and/or Chris Dyson Ginetta LMP1 in the next year's race, I will count such as LMP1 entry instead of jamming it into LMH, even if in the entry list it's listed as such

I think in the future I might implement 90's into it as well, it would demonstrate nicely the "roughly 10 year interval" between the collapse of several headliner classes (90's GT1 in 1998/1999, 2000's GT1 in 2010/2011, LMP1 in 2020/2021, probably GTE in 20xx)

I know it's fun (depending on your moderator status) to refuse to acknowledge and debate the given class structures and classifications of various chassis. And your continuity stance is understandable for the sake of data.

But for the sake of being difficult, it would be interesting to to view the chronological timeline of classes starting from the current ruleset rather than starting with some arbitrary point in time. Basically to start with Pro/Am, and apply that class structure going backward over the last few years. It's the only way we can see how many fully Pro entries there have been.

You have 24 hours.(lol get it?)

The charts produced here are great and show the development of the entries really well. Love them

Different splits would help demonstrate some of the changes, good and bad, over the years. As a high level summary the split above is pretty good I think.

Perhaps a good split would be 'primary class' and 'secondary class' within each of GT and Prototype.

Then the changing a names from GT1 to GT2 to GT Pro etc. over the years wouldn't matter.

The total split GT/Prototype seems to have been 50/50 across the course of the chart, so there is a certain level of artificialness to the numbers anyway...
