My money is on Checo this weekend, for no reason other than I think he’s really good.

None. GT2 doesn’t exist anymore.

It was once the place where the 993 GT2 did battle, however.

Those are street cars based on the specifications for those classes, though. This is a race car that is racing but not racing in GT3, because it’s ineligible.

e-fuel is pretty much non-viable in my eyes. It’s a pipe dream that will never reach widespread use.

Technically the RSR isn’t a GT3 either. It’s homologated from the Carrera 4S widebody chassis, so it’s actually been called “911 RSR” since the 991 model was introduced in 2013.

I’m similar size to you, 6'2" and big. Scout Bobber is a good size for people like us, but it’s extremely uncomfortable for long rides. I did a nice ride on Royal Enfield’s INT 650, and that seems like a great bike for the money.
