Championship

The British GT championship showcases the most prestigious and stylish sportscar grid of any national motorsport championship in the world. The 2017 season will visit six UK venues with one international event held at the Belgian circuit, Spa-Francorchamps.

With glamorous supercars racing bumper-to-bumper, ground-shaking noise, breathtaking speeds and all the drama of pit stops and driver changeovers, the British GT championship offers a motorsport experience to appeal to all fans of high octane action.

Points are awarded as follows in each class 1st 25, 2nd 18, 3rd 15, 4th 12, 5th 10, 6th 8, 7th 6, 8th 4, 9th 2, 10th 1.

For races of two hours of more, points and a half are awarded: 1st 37.5, 2nd 27, 3rd 22.5, 4th 18, 5th 15, 6th 12, 7th 9, 8th 6, 9th 3, 10th 1.5.

Twin-race meetings will feature two separate one-hour races, with three to four endurance events each hosting a single two-hour race and a one off three-hour endurance race, where the option of three drivers per car can be permitted at the organisers discretion.

All races feature a mandatory ‘driver change’ pit stop. In the 1 hour races it must be carried out between 25 and 35 minutes and will be of a minimum specified duration.

In the 2 hour races, where stops would usually include refuelling, the pit stop will be of a longer minimum duration; teams are free to call when to stop, but the minimum drive time for one driver is 60 minutes on track.

The three-hour race permits drivers to race a maximum 100 minutes and minimum 40 minutes, with three mandatory pit stops during the three-hour race.
