They moved up from GTE-Am to GTE-Pro at Le Mans earlier this year so it wouldn’t be unheard of. GTD is supposed to be even more stacked next year so a move up to GTLM could be more valuable. Corvette or BMW falter and you’re looking at potentially being in contention for a class win at the Rolex or Sebring. And the drive time requirements for an Am like Cooper MacNeil change with a class move too.I do not see this coming to light, but Scuderia Corsa is considering moving up to GTLM. However, I think Cooper will get his behind handed on a platter. Not to mention, like Risi, Scuderia Corsa will not receive full support from Ferrari. I would like to see Risi and Scuderia Corsa merge for this project to see if both organization can pool resources for two entries for GTLM to at least maintain six entries.
I don't see it happening, but w/e more smoke and mirrors.
