Intercontinental GT Challenge
With the interest and enthusiasm of GT racing growing all over the world, 2016 provided the perfect opportunity for SRO Motorsports Group to introduce the Intercontinental GT Challenge.
The Liqui-Moly Bathurst 12 Hours, Total 24 Hours of Spa and Sepang 12 Hours comprise the calendar for the inaugural Intercontinental GT Challenge, the first ever global GT3 Series. This new concept is aimed at manufacturers, who are encouraged to use local teams to represent them in these leading GT3 races, as it is more cost- and time-effective to fly engineers and drivers around the world rathter than cars and equipment.
Both a Manufacturers' and Drivers' title will be awarded in the Pro category, while a Drivers' title will be awarded in Pro-Am. The events all have common technical regulations while SRO will manage the BoP.
The Intercontinental GT Challenge represents the highest achievement in long distance GT racing. By uniting these iconic events in one series, the level of racing at each round will certainly increase, elevating the event's appeal to fans, sponsors, media, drivers and teams alike. Signifiant global TV coverage is also expected.
