GT Cup Donington GP
12 September, 2020 - 14 September, 2020
The GT Cup is an established part of the UK motorsport scene and continues to grow in stature and popularity. Founded in 2007 by Marc Haynes as a premium GT sprint series, it has continuously proved to be the championship of choice for discerning sporting drivers.
What differentiates the GT Cup is our professional offering, derived from personal experiences and the values of our founder to provide a genuine driver centred race experience, where sportsmanship and having fun is at the centre of our paddock. Add unrivalled access to quality race circuits and provide the very best service at an affordable price. Lastly we look to share our passion for motorsport with like-minded racers and create an environment and culture where we aspire to exceed expectation and delight our drivers, their families, teams, partners and supporters.
Our GT Cup paddock is renowned for being friendly and relaxed within a professional atmosphere. The whole paddock from the organisers to the marshals, teams and drivers, collectively look to support each other and share our mutual passion for motorsport. The racing is strongly contested and the GT Cup maintains and enforces driver standards to protect the values we uphold. This attention to sporting behaviour is central to our growing success and why the GT Cup is attracting manufacturer support in the form of their driver programs. The GT Cup enjoys one of the widest varieties of GT race car grids in the United Kingdom.
Founded on providing a home for a broad range of GT race cars, current and past, all have a place among our Groups structure. The grid is split into six Groups based upon the maximum lap time potential of each car, which means that cars can continue racing in the GT Cup long past their usual life cycle.
The 2020 format remains largely unchanged with a 15 minute warm-up, a 15-minute qualifying session, followed by a 25-minute Sprint Race and 50 minute Pit Stop Race on each day. Following successful testing in 2019, the warm-up and qualifying sessions will be rolled into one session of 30 minutes with a brief break between the two sessions, allowing drivers and teams the chance to bring everything up to speed and ready for their Qualifying.
For many the GT Cup will be the pinnacle of their motorsport experience and quite rightly so, arguably being the most competitive GT club racing Championship in the UK. Former GT Cup Champions have successfully campaigned in British GT, Blancpain and WEC, so whatever you aspire to achieve in motorsport we firmly believe the GT Cup is the very best club arena in which to race.
Irrespective of your background or future aspirations the GT Cup guarantee you the very best of professional club motorsport in a nurturing and supportive environment and with over 60 separate entries in 2019, demand is high for spots on the grid, so to ensure you are not disappointed please register your interest as soon as possible.
