    In GT Am are 5 Ferraris, all 458, fighting for the victory.

    So, let's vote, what Type of car will win in GT Pro and in GT Am and what Starting number?

    And 4 Brands in GT Am:

    Ferrari 458

    As much as I really, really want and hope for a 488 Pro win, I have reliability reservations this early in its career, over 24 hours....
    Risi's drama's at Daytona, AF 51 engine change at Silverstone and the heart breaking failure at the end in Spa.
    Heart wants AF Corse.... head is saying Vette, as much as it pains me to say it.
    The 458 should run like a train in Am tho'...

    Here's hoping I am wrong about the Pro result!!

    I also hope for a PRO and AM triple podium for our cars and from a pure performance perspective the 488 should be the absolute favorite especially with the Michelins black gold....but I have my concerns regarding reliability. on the positive side is that all 3 cars have top drivers and each squad is able to win if another fail. another factor is the BOP, we dont know if Ford has shown their real potential and Vette is hard to estimate as the IMSA BoP is different from the one of the ACO. AM Class, I hope for one of the 458 but I think we need to have the Aston with Lauda on the Agenda as well.

    and its Le Mans, the Grandmother of Endurance Racing, nothing can beat that.... Magic

    it will be an epic race, can't wait to go there.

    BoP changed for Le Mans!
    Why do the Ladoux test and change BoP every race? I do not get it.
    Why not test cars at Spa, Monza and Ladoux, after that NO MORE CHANGES.

    because everybody is playing games.

    or how is it possible that ALL cars have been slower at the WEC Test at Paul Ricard end of March than the year before? ACO is constantly analysing the situation and especially corvette is hard to balance as the car does not race in any of the wec races before LM. I'm also sure that Ford has never showed the real potential. Fords target is Le Mans, they dont care about the rest. We will know more after the qualifing sessions before the race.

    I know what the 488 can do compared to the 458. the only question is reliability.

    It looks that the Corvettes are the favourites but anything can happen.

    One question: why no 488s in AM?

    I think it will be Aston Martin in the GTE with such an experienced car.

    Ferrari 458 in AM.

    Other way around.... We will be very strong in the Pro Class but the Lauda/Lamy/Dalla Lana Aston in the AM class is going to be tough to beat. Last year they led 23hours and 37 minutes of the race......

    Agrew with you Peter, but in GT Pro the same, dont forget the gearbox problem of the leading #51 Ferrari 2 hours till the end ;-)

    Aston will be very strong in GT Am.

    Because you don't win Le Mans on your first try, and because it is a Ford (Fix Or Repair Daily)!!!!

    true potential only shown during qualifying.

    Corvette:
    2004 1st GT1
    2005 1st GT1
    2006 1st GT1
    2009 1st GT2
    2011 1st Pro and 1st AM
    2015 1st Pro

    Ferrari:
    2003 1st GT1
    2008 1st GT2
    2009 1st GT2
    2012 1st PRO
    2014 1st PRO

    488 might be a little fragile imho (maiden year for this car, maybe like 458, mods will make car better/reliable for 2017 and on)
    I put my money on Corvette, a super strong, fast and reliable race car.

    Look who won GT class at 12H Sebring, 24H Daytona this year and in the past?
    How many times did Ferrari win with a GTLM car at these tracks?

    I voted Porsche and Porsche; it's my favourite car.

    As long as they make them with overhang flat engine, Porsche will always look special to me.
