Thank god GT racing is alive and well globally.
There is also motogp
Those guys never fail to disappoint.
Actually I agree 100%. The Prototype class is a mess right now so I've been paying much more attention to GT Le Mans and GT Daytona classes. Now that GT Daytona is essentially a GT3 spec class, this year should be awesome for them. You're right that Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) kicks ass and I'm sorry to have left them out.
For those that don't follow IMSA; it's an incredibly confusing nomenclature but the GT racing rocks. GT Le Mans cars is a factory class - Corvette v. Porsche v. Ferrari v. Ford v. BMW. The same kind of GT cars you see in the WEC GTE factory class. Really great racing here. GT Daytona is GT3 cars. There used to be the American Le Mans series and Rolex Sports Car Series that a few years ago merged into one, the United Sportscar Championship (USCC). It's run by IMSA, was sponsored by Tudor last year, and now is sponsored by Weathertech. So it's the IMSA Weathertech USCC this year.
The new breed of GT cars for 2016 makes this an exciting year too:
BMW M6 GT
991 GT3 R
Think there's also a new R8, Viper, Ferrari 488, and RC-F.
