2022 Provisional GT Cup Championship Calendar
21 September 2021
Bute Motorsport are excited to announce the provisional 2022 GT Cup Championship Calendar featuring seven action-packed weekends at some of the UK's best circuits.
Donington Park, as has become somewhat tradition, will host the season opener in early April. Brands Hatch follows at the end of the month as our teams will return to the iconic GP loop. Our Brands Hatch weekend promises to be a bumper bash of GT racing as we will be supporting GT World Challenge Europe.
In June, the series heads to Norfolk for the first of two visits to Snetterton, with Oulton Park following in July. Silverstone once again plays host for our fifth weekend, though a little earlier than 2021 – we're just about cramming two events into July! For the penultimate weekend, it's back to Donington Park for a run around the GP circuit in September. The season will then draw to a close in October as we head back to Norfolk for the grand finale at Snetterton.
9/10 April – Donington Park National
30 April/1 May – Brands Hatch GP (supporting GT World Challenge Europe)
11/12 June – Snetterton 300
9 July – Oulton Park International
30/31 July – Silverstone GP
17/18 September – Donington Park GP
8/9 October – Snetterton 300
The series will continue to use the current track time format which has proven popular over the last two seasons. Entrants start each day with back-to-back Free Practice and Qualifying sessions, before a 25-minute Sprint and 50-minute Pit Stop race later.
Competitors will be competing for a variety of titles, from the Overall Championship to the Group Championships through to the Sprint and Sporting Challenges. There is plenty up for grabs!
Championship Director Hannah James said: -
“Throughout the season, we have been gathering feedback and working hard with our partners to create the best package GT Cup can offer for 2022. This will include plenty of track time, continuing the live race coverage on Facebook and YouTube, and dedicated GT Cup testing ahead of each event.
Drawing on what we have learned during our phenomenal 2021 season we are doing everything we can to make sure 2022 is the best it can be. There will be further announcements to come as we continue to finalise the details for next season.”
