|Notes||Each Blancpain GT Series Asia weekend will follow the same format, which has been designed to maximise track time. Friday features two 45-minute practice sessions before another 30-minute session on Saturday morning. That’s followed by two 15-minute qualifying segments ahead of that afternoon’s 60-minute race. A second, hour-long race then takes place on Sunday. Both races will feature a mandatory pit-stop and driver change governed by a minimum pit-stop time.|
GT3 and GT4 cars will compete in the same race, albeit fighting for individual honours, which adds an exciting multi-class element.
Equally, SRO’s driver crew classifications offer an opportunity for existing professionals to excel, youngsters to develop and amateurs to win. GT3 will therefore comprise separate categories for Pro/Am, Silver Cup (Silver Cup cars will be balanced) and Am/Am line-ups, while GT4 remains solely dedicated to all-amateur pairings in preparation for a potential GT3 graduation.
