British GT returns to the Home of British Motorsport on June 11/12 for its annual blue riband event: the Silverstone 500. A packed grid of GT3 and GT4 machinery, featuring the likes of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley, will do battle over three hours around the world famous venue’s full GP configuration.
British GT is once again joined on the bill by the UK’s most prestigious junior single-seater series, the Duo BRDC Formula 4 Championship. Featuring an all-new one-make chassis and more powerful engine, the category is an ideal opportunity to spot the stars of the future before they break into the big time. The European GT4 Series will also make a guest appearance along with two more British GT staples, the Volkswagen Racing Cup and Ginetta GT5 Challenge.
