GT World Challenge Europe 2020

Early days yet, but both the Endurance and Sprint grids will likely have slightly different looks to them in 2020.

M Sport looking to shift towards customer led programmes with KPAX mooted for a move to GT Challenge Europe, GRT are almost certain not to return in a serious way with their IMSA expansion afoot, and people like Honda, Mclaren are eyeing up more serious PRO efforts with customer teams.

GT Open 2019 champions Emil Frey just announced a return to the series with their Lamborghinis, sticking with a largely factory free lineup, so looks like FFF Racing will be the sharp point of the Lambo effort again in 2020.

Good to see Tom Blomqvist announce next years plans after being dropped by BMW.

We can expect Da Costa somewhere in that lineup too

Really hoping to see at least a couple of Mclarens next year. Had a good overall season in GT Open and British GT pace wise.

McLaren GT new department is having some hard time and the previous service supporter didn't help the cause.

Kpax taking over from M-Sport in the Endurance Cup only, so still no Bentleys in Sprint.

Also confirmed is that M-Sport will run the full IGTC.

K-Pax Racing - Bentley Continental GT3 - Maxime Soulet / Jules Gounon / Rodrigo Baptista
K-Pax Racing - Bentley Continental GT3 - Alvaro Parente / Andy Soucek / Jordan Pepper

In addition to the big but rather expected news of K Pax to Europe, Tech1 and Panis Barthez Competition have merged forming Panis Racing, and have confirmed to DSC they will run in World Challenge Europe... Presuming thats continuing their Lexus programme

Grids are coming together nicely, and numbering about the same as this point in off season last year, so I dont expect we will see much of a dip in entries.

Well aware WRT are likely to enter more cars that just a pair, but so far they have only confirmed 'cars' for World Challenge Europe, so numbers TBC

Great if Panis runs one of the Lexus' as a frontrunning car?

Who would likely be driving though?

Ideally at least one with experience of the Frey effort 2 years ago?
