British GT resume their season at Spa

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

Following nearly a five week break, the British GT Championship resumes it 2016 season this weekend at the iconic circuit at Spa Francorchamps, Belgium with another two hour race and like the previous race at Silverstone they will again be joined by the European GT4 Series and other guest entries.

With a provisional entry list showing 61 cars spread across the GT3 and GT4 format four of those entries are V12 Vantage GT3's and nine V8 Vantage GT4's.

The Beechdean and Motorbase GT3 cars will again be joined by the two TF Sports GT3's.

PFL Motorsport have already confirmed their absenteeism from the event following the bizarre accident  with their lorrys tail lift the Silverstone paddock that left their GT3 with significant damage but more importantly, several team members with physical injuries.

In GT4 the regular BGT entries from Generation AMR, MacMillan Racing, JWB and Beechdean shall now be joined with the returning entry from Stratton Motorsport and the second Beechdean GT4 entry (see previous reports). They in turn will be joined by two GT4 Astons from V8 Racing and a single V8 Aston from Street Art Racing from the European GT4 Series.

Despite previous reports Academy Motorsport have not been noted on the entry list for what would have been their second appearance in 2016 with Dennis Strandberg and Matt Nichol Jones sharing their GT4 like they did at Silverstone.

Care should be taken with the timetable for this meeting as it shares the circuit with the annual 25Hr Fun Cup event - so the two hour race is on Saturday and not the usual Sunday!!

From the series' previous encounter at Silverstone last month it was noted that several of the BGT GT3 drivers were complaining of driving standards from the Euro GT4 Series so we hope from that that all drivers can be more accommodating to each other in order to avoid any further confrontation on track.
