GT3 Cup Challenge LogoTwelve races in six weekends covering Britain’s best-loved tracks make up the superb calendar for the 2013 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge GB.
 
Headlining the season will be the deciding two races on the BTCC support bill at Silverstone in September, while visits to Donington Park, Brands Hatch, Croft, Snetterton and Rockingham make up the balance of the season. Importantly, general test sessions are available before the race weekend at each track to allow less experienced drivers to learn the circuits.
 
The season starts at Donington Park in mid-April, just a week before the Carrera Cup GB races at the East Midlands track on the BTCC schedule. Double-headers at Snetterton (May), Croft (July) and Rockingham (August) follow through the spring and summer before an all-action finish to the season in September with dates at Brands Hatch and then at Silverstone for the BTCC weekend.
 
At four of the tracks (Snetterton, Croft, Rockingham and Brands Hatch) general testing is available on the Friday of the race weekend, At Donington, the general test will be on the Thursday before the races and at Silverstone testing will be on the Wednesday prior to the event.
 
“We’ve listened to the feedback from our competitors and believe we have an excellent calendar,” said championship co-ordinator Darioush Gheissari. “I’m particularly pleased that testing is available before each of the race weekends.”
