GT WORLD CHALLENGE
Reserved for cars confirming to GT3 regulations and using SRO Motorsports Group’s globally recognised Balance of Performance criteria, GT World Challenge Europe is renowned for producing all-action racing between leading drivers, teams and automotive brands.
The present-day championship can trace its roots back to 2011, when SRO partnered with Swiss watch manufacturer Blancpain to create the Blancpain Endurance Series.
Encouraged by this success, SRO and Blancpain partnered once again in 2014 to create the Sprint Series, which adopted the same blueprint that had formed the Endurance category while testing competitors in short-format races.
The championship continue to grow, with increased grids and ever-greater standards of competition coming to the fore. This was highlighted by record numbers at the Total 24 Hours of Spa, with an incredible 72-car entry list in 2019.
The series has been renamed GT World Challenge Europe for the 2020 season. Nevertheless, the fundamentals of GT World Challenge Europe remain the same. There will once again be a total of 10 rounds at high-level circuits, split evenly between the Endurance Cup and Sprint Cup, while the Total 24 Hours of Spa remains as the marquee event. The season ahead will see the great race celebrate its 20th running since GT rules were adopted in 2001, as well as its 10th using the GT3 platform.
