The British GT Championship has revealed a full-capacity entry list for the 2020 season, comprising of 16 GT4s and 19 GT3s – the largest number since 2014.
A total of 35 cars will compete in all seven rounds of the season, while additional race-by-race entries will feature at the Silverstone race onward, and after an initial resurgence last year, this season’s competition will be the first to feature more GT3s than GT4s for the first time since 2014. The 2020 season will feature two added GT4 Pro/Am title-winning teams, and its current drivers’ champion Tom Canning, along with a renewed Silver Cup interest.
Mercedes-AMG and Toyota are set to make debuts in the championship, while a total of eight McLaren 570s make it onto the grid. Both reigning GT3 champions will make a return to proceedings, alongside two former GT4 winners Graham Johnson and Matt Nicoll-Jones, who feature as a part of McLaren’s driver development program.
Lauren Granville, the championship manager, said, “We are absolutely delighted with the interest in GT3, which has surpassed our expectations. The number of two-car GT4 teams and mix of returning and new drivers also points toward an exciting season. Every team has achieved British GT success in the past, so I expect this year’s championship to be one of the most competitive on record.”
