The 2024 N24 was moved to June 1-2, to avoid the clash with the FIA WEC Spa round.

N"ring 24 needs to evolve. Its time to get rid of all of the 3rd starting group classes. Let 40 GT3 cars race. Especially with interest from Chevy and Ford now. Also more Mercedes GT2, Porsche 992 Cup cars, Ferrari Challenge, Lambo Super Trofeo. That would work just fine.

No need to get rid of anyone. The total number of entries has been down the past couple of years. The many multiple classes is part of the history of th race. They will have no problem taking on new GT3 entries.

It would be a better race without the GT3 cars :-)

Much closer laptimes between the GT4 cars and the one-make 'Cup' cars.

Exactly, the beauty of the race is the variety of different cars from different classes. Means even the ones at the back have something to fight for

Errr no. GT3 cars is what attracts the audiences mysef included. Yes I know there is the Spa 24, however SRO ruins that race with their blasted safety car procedures. N'Ring 24 is the honest genuine endurance race left.

This year's race had over 30 GT3 entries, which is excellent.

I'd love to see more non-German cars, but I'm far from asking less classes.

I am optimistic as I see Chevy and Ford having ambitions there

Most of the audience are there for the party.

Keep the slower classes, reduce the number of GT3s so you don't get so many of them driving dangerously.

Sadly for you SRO and ADAC are now running the 24 hours as part of the IGTC from 2024 onwards.

It surprises me though because one of the big themes coming out of SPA is how manufacturers feel that GT3 is no longer sustainable due to inflation, the cost of the new cars etc. Now anyone that wants to compete in IGTC needs to include the ring permits and the additional events to gain those permits which increases costs.

The manufacturers say that, but so many of the championships are in a very strong place and, as DSC say, there's big order books for the new cars....so one questions how much validity there is in what manufacturers are saying.

Well yeah but at that point there was no real alternative but now Ratel and manufacturers are pushing GT2 more and more.

hosting half of the globetrotting series in Europe is a diversion from the IGTC’s initial goals and evidence of how tough the task of creating marquee events in certain parts of the world has been
Ratel tried Kyalami, Sepang and Laguna Seca, and they failed. Adding the Nordschleife is excellent.

Kyalami was a success the first time around .......
Unfortunately COVID and the associated travel restrictions ruined any potential progress.
IMHO he will take the series back there in strength.
