For the first time since its creation in 2006, the International GT Open will visit Silverstone this year. The series promoted by former sportscar driver Jesús Pareja and his GT Sport organization has regularly visited the U.K. (Brands Hatch, Donington) in recent years and will make its debut at the home of the British GP in July.
The International GT Open has grown steadily over the years to become the best platform in Europe for GT2 and GT3 pro-am racing, in an ever more competitive GT market. Among the strengths of the International GT Open are a set of simple and stable rules, the top-level quality of the circuit it visits, excellent TV coverage and the best value for money for competitors.
Some of Europe’s top GT teams and drivers are among the regular participants to the International GT Open, which was one of the very first series to adopt a time handicap system to balance performances. The championship is open to GT2 and GT3 machinery, fielded in two separate classes, SuperGT (GT2) and GTS (GT3), with all the well-know GT makers (Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, McLaren, BMW, Mercedes, etc) represented. The usual weekend format includes one 70-minute race on Saturday and a 50-minute race on Sunday.
Alongside the GT Open, GT Sport organizes the European F3 Open, which has become one of the most interesting F3 series, now in its 13th edition. In 2012, the European F3 Open has enjoyed the best entry in numbers among F3 series (up to 26 cars per event) and the highest number of new Dallara F312 cars. The series is attracting young drivers from all continents and benefits of the same premium TV coverage as the International GT Open.
