As the driver of one of the "slower" GTS2 cars, I have to question the logic of throwing slower GTS1 and 2 cars in with the faster (read, much faster) GTS3-5, AI, SU, etc. cars just for the sake of keeping the GTS cars all together. I saw, and experienced numerous close calls at Lime Rock this July between we slower GTS1 and 2 cars and the rest of the Autobahn group. And even though I realize that racing with faster cars is part of the racing experience, having to constantly drive your mirrors for cars closing at speed differentials of as much as 50 mph, frankly makes for a less than enjoyable racing experience.
Personally, I've always liked racing in the Lightning group - more dented-up cars and more closely matched speeds. . .
Just my 2-cents worth (or lack thereof!). OK you fast GTS2 drivers, what's your take on this?
Nationals had everyone in one group with zero issue. Just sayin'.
