Grand Am bores the shit out of me. Nothing to do with Porsche not doing well. It's amateur hour comparatively to other road racing series across the globe. No car has any grip for one. I find WTCC far more exciting, and those cars are very underpowered comparatively. DTM all the more (watch a DTM pitstop). FIA GT3 even more so in terms of competition and the cars we want to see out there. But ultimately Le Mans is the supreme race, with many others across Europe and Southwest Asia. Grand Am prototypes are the ugliest race cars in the world. Ultimately, that series is meant to be affordable. As I said, boring.

No worries though...
