Blancpain GT Series 2014 Confirms 66 Cars On The Grid
SRO Motorsports Group is pleased to announce the official full season entry of 66 cars in the Blancpain GT Series, harmoniously distributed between the Blancpain Endurance Series (44 cars) and the Blancpain Sprint Series (22 cars), reinforcing its position as Europe’s leading GT Series.
The Blancpain GT Series, created to bring together under one banner the successful Blancpain Endurance Series and the former FIA GT Series, is the only international series that is exclusively reserved for GT3 cars. This exclusivity makes it the most important GT championship in Europe and a model for GT Racing expansion worldwide.
The GT3 category, the concept of driver categorisation, race formats, fuel consumption rules as well as additional bronze tests reserved for amateur drivers were all introduced by SRO before becoming the norm across GT series in Europe and elsewhere. The SRO-monitored Balance of Performance and national homologations, published in collaboration with the RACB and the MSA, are also part of an increasing number of partnership agreements made between SRO and series and event promoters around the globe.
The only GT3 series to offer full professional classes without handicap weights or success ballast, Blancpain Endurance and Blancpain Sprint display the highest level of competition with plenty of top-notch racing teams, many of them benefitting from direct manufacturer support, representing no fewer than twelve different makes.The Blancpain Sprint Series is also the only short distance GT format that offers highly professional pit stop competition rather than the set time applied in the more amateur series.
