British GT sells out 2016 grid in record time
This year’s British GT Championship has sold out of grid slots, three months before the start of the 2016 campaign.
Last week’s Autosport Show brought a raft of announcements from teams and drivers and British GT manager Benjamin Franassovici confirmed that 32 paid entries have been received.
British GT organisers are now compiling a reserve entries list, and can cater for additional cars at circuits with a higher grid capacity, such as Silverstone GP or Donington Park.
Franassovici said: “This is probably the earliest we’ve sold out. It seems we fill up at least two weeks earlier every year.
“British GT has a lot of appeal and momentum and the growth of GT4 has been very noticeable.
“The entry is split 50-50 between GT3 and GT4, so it will be the largest GT4 grid ever. We’ll try our best to accommodate more teams as and when we can.”
