Thanks for starting this.

My hopes are for another Bimmer M4 GT3, and a to see Audi, Ferrari and Porsche return in some capacity.

I wondered if Academy are thinking of running a GT3 Mustang, or will they stick to GT4 with the new car?

Pretty sure they said only GT3 Mustangs in Europe in 2024 will be in WEC and GTWC

The GTWC annoncement wasn't thought of as a given a few months ago amd was quite recent so it's possible more cars will be available if testing goes well?

I am guessing the following just for a bit of fun chat;

GT3:
2x Century M4
2x 2 Seas Merc
2x other Merc
2x Barwell Huracan
2x Optimum Mclaren
2x Other Mclaren
1x Beachdean Aston
1x Other Aston or Huracan
1x Tempesta Mclaren
1x TBC Ferrari
1x TBC Porsche
1x Academy Mustang??(can hope)
Will anyone plump for a 2nd or 3rd hand Audi R8?

Will SRO keep the max 17 car class or 34 cars overall limits per meeting with the exception of Silverstone?

Ford aren't expecting to release any Mustangs into series outside of GTWX and WEC in Europe in 2024.

Tempesta have a new 296 GT3 either ordered or already in possession.

Gut feeling is we will see one more additional 2024 spec Aston alongside Beechdean, you've got to think that AMR will want some presence here in year one of the new Evo.

I do believe 35 is the limit

I have also heard that GT3 Mustangs will be in short supply. That's a shame.

Interesting about the Tempesta Ferrari. Hopefully they continue to dovetail UK and Europe?

Yes I read some more about Fords plans. They are expecting SRO series including in Europe to be their biggest market for 'Stang' privateers.

Simil

GM have been suggesting similar views about the C8 GT3. But hey expect to deliver selected customer cars, including to Europe later next year. Hopefully we might see one in British GT!

Shame the Spa round is so close to Le Mans, two successive continental trips is difficult for people with jobs and/or families.

I see Century have entered 2 M4 GT3’s for the Dubai 24hrs, could this be a hint to 2 cars next year?

Yes I noticed this too. Be great to have 2 out next year. Guessing one driver would have previous GT3 experience and the 2nd might be a graduate from their GT4 cars.

I dont think the second GT3 is new, they had it in 2023 too.

Be great to see them double up in GT3 next year, all in the funding as always

Why would you want to go to Silverstone twice????
They can't even be bothered to open the 'right' grandstand on the pit straight so that spectators (who they are totally not interested in) can see down the main straight!
Once is more than enough!

Sadly Thruxton no longer seems to be considered, a great shame.

Thruxton pit lane is too small for British GT. They never went back after the chaos in 2008.

Why is it necessary to have pit stops ? Pit stops have a tendency to break up exciting races rather than make boring races exciting. What is the duration of a GT3 car on a tank of fuel ? Snetterton and Oulton will be holding two one hour races as Thruxton used to. I don't recall refuelling in those races, although I may be wrong. Just hold separate Pro and Am races or is that too difficult ?

You might think so, yet it is big enough to host the huge BTCC grids?

Thruxton and Croft should both be on the calendar imo.
