New for 2021 is the Silver/AM class. The Silver part will be aimed at those young drivers with less experience of GT racing, those drivers who can bring some budget to the team or those graduating from GT4. The Pro/AM class will remain the same along with GT3, GT4 and GTC cars being eligible to run.

Already confirmed for 2021 are
WPI Motorsport Phil Keen / Michael Igoe
Beechdean AMR Andrew Howard / Jonny Adam
Barwell Motorsport Sandy Mitchell / Adam Balon and Leo Machitski / Dennis Lind
Team ABBA Racing Sam Neary / Richard Neary

The calendar has been confirmed and with seven events culminating at Donington Park for the #DoningtonDecider weekend of September 11th/12th). There is also going to be pre-event testing at each race weekend, except Spa, to give the team a great opportunity to prepare.

The much anticipated pre-season Media Day will unfortunately not be running this year.

For the headlining Silverstone 500 3 hour event the grid will be bolstered by the addition of the GT Rebellion Series. This will see older and current GT3 cars joining the action.

April 3rd and 5th Oulton Park
April 24th/25th Snetterton
