merak1974 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Maserati has repeatedly stated they will be going racing with the MC20, supposedly as a factory effort. Wouldn't the GT3 class be the obvious choice?

Was that before or after Covid 19, things may have changed, budgets for racing certainly will have been

gt3 in its core is more a customers oriented racing. At best MC20 will be used for maserati trofeo IMHO

The factory/customer landscape of GT3 might soon change with the inevitable death of GTE.

Any ideas on how the landscape is going to change, and what the likely consequences of those changes for Maserati's MC20 racing project?

Should at least reduce Maserati’s options to GT3 spec or GT4.

Seems like GT3 Will becomes the top tier gt formula, with all pro lineups allowed in things like WEC

it's not that the issue; there are alredy full or partially factory backed gt3 programs in VLN, BES, nurburgring/spa 24H etc...
it's just I don't think the actual maserati, a manufacturer that is trying to find his way inside the market after cutting ties with ferrari, is interested in a gt3 or whatever factory effort.
The maserati "official" programs of last 10-15 years were heavily backed by ferrari for the MC12 GT1 and by swiss team for V8 superstar series, the same private effort that built the Maserati granturismo MC gt3.

The main consequence is that as soon as GT3 becomes a class in WEC/Le Mans it opens the possibility for full works teams. SRO likely wants to keep its series customer-oriented in the future too and if not outright ban (umm Bentley?) then at least discourage works teams.

Maserati and its Corse (MC) department was of course also heavily involved in the Gran Turismo GT4 program. In fact, the first race entries were by the factory, which led to race wins in the European GT4 Cup in 2010. The GT4 effort then morphed into the Trofeo series (due to lack of interest by private teams to buy the car, I presume...), but upon returning to GT4 racing some years later (2015, if I remember correctly), the cars were all run by private teams, and quite successfully so in various European and North American GT4 series.

That would be very strange after all the fanfare, the presence of Bertolini and CEO's big quote "We're going back to racing!" at the MC20 unveiling.

If you ask me, MC20 could be turned into anything from GT4 to LMH.

I see really unlikely to update a based street car to LMH specs.
For sure it can be done according to regulamentations, but forget to reach performance window of a bespoke prototype.
