SRO Motorsports Group, the series organisers of the Intelligent Money British GT Championship has announced a capacity 35-car grid for the new season with 19 entries competing for the GT3 title, the highest number of entries for the senior class since 2014.
12 entries have been registered for the GT3 Pro/Am category with four in the Silver category, one in the Am/Am class and two that have yet to be announced.
The GT4 class sees 16 entries in what should be one of the most competitive class grids seen in recent years. Nine entries will contest the Silver Cup category with four in the Pro/Am class and three that have yet to be declared.
Championship Manager Lauren Granville is looking forward to the new season with a grid that was filling up shortly after entries opened just the month after the conclusion of the 2019 season.
“We are absolutely delighted with the interest in GT3, which has surpassed our expectations,” said Lauren Granville. “We knew just after entries opened in October that the 15 reserved spaces were likely to sell out following 2019’s strong season, but the number of GT4 drivers stepping up has been a particularly pleasant surprise. British GT provides an opportunity for young drivers and amateurs to progress, and that’s something I’m really looking forward to seeing this year.
“The number of two-car GT4 teams and mix of returning and new drivers also points towards an exciting season. Every team has achieved British GT success in the past so I expect this year’s championship to be one of the most competitive on record.”
Media Day track action for the British GT Championship grid begins at 10:00 on March 3 with a 70-minute test session followed by a further two-hour session at 15:00.
Racing gets underway at Oulton Park over the Easter weekend of April 11 – 13.
