Blancpain GT Series to return to Brands Hatch next May

Tuesday, November 08 2016

The 2017 Blancpain GT Series calendar has been announced, and the pan-European championship will return to Brands Hatch on 6/7 May for another weekend of high-speed supercar action.

The Blancpain GT Series first came to the Kent circuit in 2014, bringing top-line International GT racing back to Brands Hatch. The three events held so far have proved to be a hit with spectators, with spectacular action from the planet's most expensive and exclusive cars and a stirring soundtrack to match.

This year's event was won by eventual Sprint Cup champion Enzo Ide, who fought off a field that had doubled in size from 2015, bringing a grid of almost 40 cars. Next year's race will take place on the now-traditional early May (6/7) date.

Stephane Ratel, CEO of SRO Motorsports Group, said: "With the number of cars and drivers in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup remaining at the same high level, there was a notable increase in participants in the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup. The racing was very close and with three different manufacturers winning the overall rankings, the Sprint Cup and the Endurance Cup, it is clear that the Blancpain GT Series has become one of the most competitive motorsports series on the planet. I am very much looking forward to next year, to see some exciting GT3 racing once again!"
