I thought they always will run with British Gt on the same weekends but often have separate races

Right, but that leaves GT3 at a rather awkward position unless they can find half a dozen of additional entries for next year. And the there's also the Silver/Silver pairings, which make up a not-insignificant part of the GT4 field.

No more Misano, Brands Hatch, Slovakiaring, Red Bull Ring and Zandvoort in 2018 for the GT4 European Series. Nürburgring the only one remaining on the calendar.
Any idea why they dropped Zandvoort? With Ekris and Las Moras two loyal GT4 entries a Dutch round makes sense.

I think with the main GT4 series becoming a permanent support race of Blancpain GT, going to Zandvoort was not an option anymore.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Zandvoort show up in the planned Central European Series, which might be part of the ADAC GT package.

Totally correct.

Organisers saying they are confident of an expanded GT3 field next year but I say it's not worth much without 18+ cars

Also remember GT3 will run with GT Cup cars welcome next year which they believe will fill out the field

I'd say this move is more one based around GT4 doing very well and needing more space, than any concern for GT3

It is indeed planned that a semi-independent cup in British GT with GT CUP cars as support to GT3, while at some rounds the British GT4 Cup will running semi-independently from British GT.

Think it was something like 4 races with split-grids, 1 standalone event and two with combined grids.

GT4 European Series with Blancpain is the main reason. Obviously there could still be a change in calendars, as Budapest is TBC and a seventh race is under consideration.

So far Zandvoort doesn't feature on a Central Europe series calendar either.

Right, the old "GT Cup to prop up GT3" thing - because that has worked so well in the past!

Without giving away any names, we're looking at another packed grid for Zandvoort in two weeks ;-)

Wow - that is a lengthy list! Great to see so many cars and so many different marques.

Nice to see 4 Maserati on the list, including the Ebor GT Team Maserati. Their Gran Turismo GT4 driven by Fagg & Graham won both GT4 races in the British GT Championship round at Spa-Francorchamps in July.
