B0U170NS should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
British GT 2017

Thought I would start this thread as the topic of British GT has become very quiet on here for a while.

Anyway a couple of entries have been confirmed already for next year including both TF sport Aston Martin's (with unchanged line ups) and a AF Corse Ferrari 488. I believe a GT4 entry has been confirmed for the 2 top drivers from the Ginetta Junior championship, although I don't think this has been mentioned on the British GT website or social media.

Will be interesting to see if there are more GT3 entries next year following the changes to the GT3 format.

I would be surprised if Strakka Racing don't enter at least 1 of their McLaren's into the championship.

Any other news/ thoughts?

Found it on Ginetta Junior champion Will Tregurtha's website:
Quote:
Enlighten-sponsored*Ginetta Junior Champion Will Tregurtha has been named as one of two drivers for HHC Motorsport's planned entry into the GT4 class of the 2016 British GT Championship.
So it's currently just a planned entry from the sounds of things.

Good to see Ferrari back full time, I hope we can see a few more GT3 cars on the grid but let's see.

thetool has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Planned because the championship is likely to be oversubscribed again and they may not get picked for an entry.

The reason i didn't put any more GT4s on the list as that there are too many cars for the number of spaces available so lots of the names announced may not be racing if their entries aren't accepted.
was waiting for confirmation before adding them.

Fair enough, I was just putting everyone who's confirmed on the list and then letting the spacing play out

You can add some more confirmed GT4's to that list:

MacMillan - Aston Martin Vantage GT4
Academy - Aston Martin Vantage GT4
Academy - Aston Martin Vantage GT4
HHC - Ginetta G55 GT4

Then there's the Beechdean cars that surely must be running? Not seen them confirmed anywhere?

MacMillan are the only ones that i will add as that list is confirmed by SRO where as there are lots of entries for GT4 so some might not get in so will only add once they have been official announced on the britishGT site

Seeing as it looks like there will be more entries than places this year, I guess it's worth asking the annual question.

What would everyone prefer?

Combined GT3 + GT4 races capped to the 32 car limit (it is 32 right?), meaning potential entries have to be turned away.

Or

Separated races for GT3 and GT4 where we could be seeing 17-18 or so cars in each race.

Personally I'm torn, on one hand I love the element of multi class racing in the series.

On the other hand, PWC has proved single class racing can be just as fun, and I hate the idea of turning cars away from the series. Their other national series option is GT Cup which I don't really rate.

In addition, the prospect of extra races each weekend would be great, being a regular spectator of the BGT
