2014 British GT

Considering the growth of the series in recent years (and the fact that I am bored), here's the 2014 thread a little early so people can speculate and do all that stuff before we say "look how good Jonny Adam is" again

With 2014 looking to be at least as good as 2013, here's the current entry list:

GT3 - United Autosports - Audi R8 - Matt Bell, Mark Patterson
GT4 - Fox Motorsport - Ginetta G55 - Jamie Stanley, Paul McNeilly
- ISSY Racing - Lotus Evora - Gavan Kershaw, Ossy Yusuf
- Twisted Team Parker - Ginetta G50 - Bradley Ellis, Adrian Barwick

I'm guessing Trackspeed, Beechdean, MTech, Triple 888, AF + FF Corse, Century Motorsport, Ecurie Ecosse and LNT will be returning, and aren't MSport supposed to be running the Bentley?

Nice to see the return of the Evora...

I think it's highly unlikely unfortunately

Great to see the Evora back, one of the prettiest GT4 cars for sure, and that class needs a little added variety too

Agreed on the Evora - great looking car and the class did need some extra variety. Speaking of which did anything ever come of the rumours about Toyota GT86's for GT4? Have UA given up with the McLarens in BGT for good? Be good to see some Lambos again too and the Bentley. Looking forward to next season

I am a big fan of GT4 and I am continually surprised that it hasn't taken off in its own right in the UK as a good "value for money" series (its all relative!). There are cars out there, particularly in Europe where M3s, Porsche 911 and even Corvette and Camaro etc have representatives racing. One Dutch outfit have built a kit that up-specs a 911 Cup/ SuperCup GT3 to be a GT4 car and that must be a good way to go, given the amount of 911 knowledge and support there is around. It doesn't have to be a Ginetta! Mind you, given that there are at least 4 x second hand Ginetta G50 GT4s available for sale at the moment for £28-35K each then I guess its not surprising that people do choose that car in the UK.

In 2014 the AMOC GT4 cars are going to run at 4 events as a support race; if the GT3 class is as popular as it was in 2013 then maybe at these 4 events they should run the British GT4 class together with the AMOC series to give a stand alone GT4 race.

I fear that, to be honest; my favourite thing about British GT that some of the international variants lack, is that defined multi class structure.

But fewer Porsches isn't. Hope Trackspeed at least hold put until the 991 GT3 arrives.

2014 calendar:

R1 - Oulton (19-21 April)
R2 - Rockingham (4-5 May)*
R3 - Silverstone (31 May-1 June)**
R4 - Snetterton (21-22 June)
R5 - Spa-Francorchamps (6-7 July)
R6 - Brands Hatch (30-31 August)*
R7 - Donington Park (13-14 September)*

All rounds will feature 2x 1 hour races, other than * (1x 2 hour) and ** (1x 3 hour)

Any news on TV coverage? I'm assuming Channel 4 will continue their weekend-after highlights programme on Saturday morning...

Let's hope that Motors TV continue their live coverage too! I don't expect them to cover the entire series live throughout the season but it would be good to see a few events at least covered live again, the round at Donnington looked very good on TV, as much in the presentation as the actual race.

Well, the more Astons, the more of a reason to watch it on TV...

Was expecting the Bentley to be M Sport, interesting to see it looking like a true privateer effort.

Hope 888 find a good replacement for Tandy, they were a fun team to have around last season.
