Subaru_WRX_STi has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
LMS GT2 vs FIA GT2 who is stronger ?

both series have good teams and drivers, so which one has the strongest field and competition ?

I would say FIA GT is the strongest series worldwide for GT2 entries. I know a ALMS team won the GT2 class at Le Mans this year but then the strongest team from FIA GT didnt exactly enter a top draw line up. Had AF Corse put in the team they used for the Spa 24 hours of Bruni/Melo/Salo I think they could easily have walked away with the LM GT2 crown.

for me there are no doubts SRO series has the strongest GT2 competition in Europe, it looks like a Ferrari Challenge for sure, but it has a very close racing, and great teams, the LMS is good too, but only 3 cars fight for the win

As far as I am aware the only team to do at least one race in LMS and FIA GT this year are IMSA Performance Matmut.

FIA GT, absolutely. Something like the Virgo walkover after starting last at the Nürburgring couldn't happen there.

The Virgo walkover was not right and shouldn't have happened.

To be fair, each car had a gentleman in it with a factory driver, so they were never on for a result. Both cars were quick in the hands of the pros.

at Felbermayer they should put Lieb and Lietz together at Bucharest, the Felbermayer father and sonn, were too slow against the quickest GT2 drivers in Europe (Bell, Bruni, Westbrook, Collard...)
