It’s Looking Like GT3 & Cup – For British GTs
Stephane Ratel has made it clear in Autosport this week that unless six GT2 cars are set to race in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship – ideally two Ferraris, two Panozes and two Porsches – then the top class of 2006 will be no more in 2007.

That will mean the championship will cater for GT3s and Cup cars. The magazine article doesn’t make it clear that the Cup cars will be welcome (the reverse in fact), but Stephane Ratel has confirmed to dailysportscar today that “the Cup class is 100% confirmed. We always said it brings a nice diversity to the grid and shall be maintained.”

The Cup Class seemed to be on the point of exclusion back in June, a situation that was then clarified – but the comment above couldn’t be clearer. The Cup Class is definitely in.

On the subject of GT3 championships, Autosport suggests that SRO will have a hand in Belcar next year (as brought to you by Joost Custers on dsc recently), that a new GT3 series will become part of the FFSA series in France, and that the German GT Championship for 2007 will also cater for GT3s.

SRO is also working on a GT3 project in Brazil, so it looks as though there will be GT3 championships all over the planet before long.
