Blancpain GT Series Overview

2019’s Blancpain GT Series is shaping up to be another exciting season in the closest GT3 championship of the motorsports planet. Last year saw a notable increase of the cars on the grid, and that growth continues this season: the world’s biggest GT series got even bigger!

The Blancpain GT Series consists out of five Sprint events and five Endurance events, the Silverstone round being one of the latter. No less than 12 manufacturers are represented on this year’s starting grid. Add to that an ever increasing number of top notch drivers – from former Grand Prix and Le Mans-winners to the best GT drivers in the world – and it is clear that the upcoming season will be one you cannot afford to miss. Many top British teams and drivers compete in the series and will be keen to shine on home turf.

The Silverstone event is a three- hour race, with two mandatory pit stops.

The Silverstone round of the Blancpain GT Series is a three-hour Endurance Cup race and will mark the third event of 2019. Now entering its ninth year, it has been an ever-present fixture on the calendar since the championship was formed.

Fun facts about the 3h Race

  • Since 2016 both the Sprint Cup and Endurance Cup adapt the same driver categories and point system, so at the end of the season the most complete GT drivers are crowned.
  • The #76 R-Motorsport Aston Martin V12 Vantage scored a dominant victory from pole position in 2018. The trio of Matthieu Vaxiviere, Jake Dennis and Nicki Thiim won by almost 11 seconds to comfortably secure a first overall victory for the British marque since 2013, when they triumphed at the same venue.
  • 2018 Fastest lap of the race was set by Davide Rigon. He lapped the Grand Prix Circuit in 1:58.667 at the wheel of the  #72  SMP Racing Ferrari 488 GT3
