In 2011 the Grand Touring Endurance classes were introduced, which includes racing cars derived from street models. Manufacturers such as Aston Martin, BMW, Ford, Porsche, and Ferrari compete in these classes. Many factory teams are represented in these categories, and all drivers must meet the same stringent requirements. But it’s the drivers that make or break a car’s performance that sets it apart from its competition.
Despite rumors to the contrary, a new class of factory GT cars is set to debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Race in 2024. Based on the global GT3 platform, this new class will be targeted at pro-am entries. If this happens, factory GT racing at the legendary race will be over. If you’ve been following the news, you know that Porsche and Ferrari have both expressed their desire to focus more of their resources on their respective prototype programs.
