    Question 1:
    What is the difference between Porsche Carrera Cup, and GT3 Challenge?
    Why does the USA and Canada GT3 Challenge series (and others similar. e.g. Middle East, and Brazil) use the GT3 Challenge title for their Porsche competition, instead of calling it Carrera Cup?

    Question 2:
    Feel free to correct me.
    I don’t hear that many PWC / IMSA teams participate in the Spa 24H?
    If cost, and logistics, are a factor, should some of the IMSA teams partner up with a European team, like they do for the LM 24H?
    How good would it be to see a stateside team on that top step!
    Realistic?

    Do you see a separate endurance championship being created, similar to the Blancpain Endurance, now that SRO has more influence in the PWC.

    If that were to happen, what would you see being the flagship event? 24 Hours of COTA was the first to come to mind, but they’re is an overnight noise ordinance for the city of Austin.

    Hello another opinion question. What do you think of the all GT races in the IMSA Weathertech series. Also thinking hypothetically, could it be logistically be possible to combine IMSA and WEC GT series into one super all GT race somewhere? VIR could be a perfect location for this.
