British GT is a competitive multi-class series run by the SRO(A Motorsports Group). The classes are all competitive with BoP(Balance of Performance) coming into play to stop dominant periods alongside subclasses within the GT3 and GT4 car classes.


THE CALENDAR

The season kicks off at Oulton Park with two one-hour races followed by the flagship race for the championship, the Silverstone 500, a three hour race on the Silverstone GP layout. They then head to Donnington park for another three hour race instead of the normal two hours before another two one-hour race weekend at Snetterton. Next comes the only non-British track, Spa Francorchamps, for a two hour contest. Two hour races at Brands Hatch and Donington Park then conclude the season.
