“We have been talking with our drivers and working hard with our partners to create the best package GT Cup can offer. This includes, headline events, garages, lots of track time, TV, the addition of dedicated GT Cup testing, coupled with our exceptional hospitality for drivers, teams and partners at every round.
Along with tweaking next year’s regulations, which is set to include a new GT3 homologated group. Pirelli have agreed to continue their offer of a "free set of tyres" for all full-season entrants which we are very excited about.
