2021 British GT Championship Calendar Published

7 provisional dates

After the COVID 19 disrupted 2020 schedule, the Intelligent Money British GT Championship will revert back to a seven-event calendar in 2021 with nine races scheduled to take place at six circuits between April and September.

The season once again begins over Easter Weekend at Oulton Park, which hosts two 60-minute races on Bank Holiday Monday. The same sprint format returns three weeks later at Snetterton before Brands Hatch – which moves from August to May – stages the season’s first 2-hour endurance race.

Next up is the blue riband Silverstone 500, which has been pushed back two weeks to avoid clashing with the Le Mans 24 Hours, before Donington Park hosts the first of its two rounds.

Spa-Francorchamps then makes a welcome return to the schedule with a 2-hour race one week before several teams and drivers remain in Belgium to contest the Total 24 Hours of Spa. An uninterrupted summer break will allow personnel to recover throughout August before the Donington Decider returns to its rightful season finale slot in mid-September with another 2-hour race to complete the season.

The provisional calendar avoids clashes with all rounds of GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS and the GT4 European Series, providing teams and drivers with an opportunity to contest multiple SRO Motorsports Group championships if they so wish.
