So I'm currently watching the GT World series from Canada mosport on YouTube and a couple of things spring to mind:
Why only 13 cars and no Nissan and.... This applies to the European Blancpain as well but why are the Bentley's right hand drive? I know they are a British car and we drive on the right over here but I thought they would be adapted for the European and world series. It must be a bit strange for the drivers.

Race drivers don't care which side the wheel is - the Audi LMPs were also RHD iirc, as were most racing cars up through the 90s, because most road courses are run clockwise. These days a lot are LHD to keep the driver changes away from the fuel rig.

Have you ever driven a LHD car? it'll take you about 2 minutes to get used to it. The harder part is getting used to traffic coming from the opposite directions at intersections.
