AVON TYRES BRITISH GT CHAMPIONSHIP
The Avon Tyres British GT championship showcases the most prestigious and stylish sportscar grid of any national motorsport championship. The 2013 season will visit six UK venues and there will be one international event, held at the Circuit Park Zandvoort, in the Netherlands.
For the fans, the British GT Championship offers a spectacular motorsport experience. With glamorous supercars racing bumper-to-bumper, ground-shaking noise, breathtaking speeds and all the drama of pit stops and driver changeovers, the race experience is one not to be missed.
Closely reflecting their road-going equivalents to keep maintenance costs to a minimum, GT3 specification racecars allow limited alterations to suspension, engine and bodywork. Including such cars as Ferrari 458 and Ferrari 430 Scuderia, McLaren MP4-12C, Nissan GTR, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Porsche Cup 997 GT3r, Audi R8 LMS, Corvette, Mercedes SLS.
Since 2011 GT3 B class has been introduced to allow for slightly older spec GT3 machinery to compete. Including such cars as Ferrari 430, Aston Martin DBRS9.
The GT4 category amalgamates GT4-homologated cars. The former category provides the exciting cars which form the mainstay of the GT European Cup - like the Lotus Evora GT4, Nissan 370Z, BMW M3, Aston Martin N24, Ginetta G50.
This class is generally made of one make championship cars, such as the Porsche Cup and the Ferrari Challenge, regulated by power to weight ratio. Changes of bodywork material and sizes may be granted, for example rear wings may be fitted, subject to the eligibility scrutineer's approval.
This class will be for cars selected by the organisers that do not comply with the regulations GT3, GT4 or GTC.
