One of the Scuderia Corsa 488s was a Kessel 488 GT3
Both cars are from the "first" series GT3s
JMW car is from the "second" series.

I have some photos when the car was new at Michelotto in 2016 (Kessel), all black.
Now its white No. 62 (probably wrapped)

No LM team bought the Fox Motorsport car.

Yes
Kessel is like the Swiss AF Corse
Maintain, (re)built. Kessel is a partner of Ferrari GT Competition department.
Kessel can be found in almost all factory documents.

Where did I talk about GT2 only Heinz?
I am talking about the racing team AND Kessel Racing Car.
Factory authorized / Michelotto partner. Why would there be else engineer names in the Michelotto/Ferrari documents.

You need to talk to the management of Michelotto or Ferrari Competizioni GT.

They maintain the cars for Scuderia Corsa, winner of GTam in 2016 and 3rd GTam 2015.

Your good ;-)

Thanks for explaining this to me, I did not knowed this all.

We go away from the beginning of the thread, what is a good thread becouse it's the first time that a Switch GT3/GT2 is possible.

Good idea to start the thread.

Converted cars do not have any effect on future value. The only thing what matters is the palmares.

F40 road cars haven been converted to LM and GTE.
If JMW wins GT-Am at LM it will be worth more than a 4th placed Ferrari in GT-Pro
