The Intelligent Money British GT Championship will start at Oulton Park on August 1/2 as part of the revised season. Four postponed events have been rescheduled and nine races consisting of five sprints and four endurance have been confirmed.

Oulton Park, the traditional season-opener, is now hosting two sprint races before the championship goes to Donington Park on August 15/16 for a 60-minute sprint and two-hour endurance race. Brands Hatch retains its August 29/30 weekend with a two-hour race, and Donington Park will host a single three-hour race on September 19/20. Snetterton will have two sprint races on October 3/4 and the Silverstone 500 will now be on November 7/8.

Lauren Granville, championship manager, said, “Hosting six events within three months hasn’t been easy to organize – there’s a lot to consider and a finite number of dates available at suitable UK circuits that avoid clashes with SRO’s European championships, which has remained a priority throughout. We’re delighted to present a revised calendar that includes trips to all of our previously scheduled UK circuits and retains 15 hours of racing across nine races.”
