GT Cup lines up 22-race schedule for spectacular season in 2018

 

Wednesday 8th November 2017

 

After an exciting and action-packed 2017 season which went right down to the final 50 minutes, the GT Cup plans to return in 2018 with 22 rounds over eight weekends taking in some of the UK’s most iconic race venues, with a trip to the stunning Spa Francorchamps the European highlight.

 

The championship gets underway at the traditional Donington Park date in April, before heading to the sweeps and dips of the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit one month later. In early June the series returns to Spa Francorchamps once again, with two split-grid races with the Henderson Insurance Brokers LMP3 Cup Championship.

 

Snetterton hosts the first of two visits at the end of that month, and the annual stand-alone one-day meeting at Oulton Park is a couple of weeks later. The return trip to Snetterton comes in August, with the second weekend at Donington in September utilising the longer configuration. The season closes at Silverstone in October, on the full Grand Prix circuit, where six more champions will be crowned.

 

Entries will open soon but those wishing to race in 2018 can contact Hannah Wilson, Race Manager & Director at Bute Motorsport, for further information, at hannah@butemotorsport.com or 01963 442787.
