The GT Cup Open Europe completes BoP track tests at Barcelona


The GT Cup Open Europe Cup continues full-steam ahead the preparations towards its inaugural season in 2019. While interest for the new pro-am and am series launched by GT Sport for cars one step below GT3 is growing steadily among teams across Europe, an important Balance of Performance track session took place this week at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Five different car models were involved: the Lamborghini Huracan SuperTrofeo (by Vincenzo Sospiri Racing, with Giovanni Venturini at the wheel), the Mercedes AMG R (SPV Racing, with Thomas Jäger as driver), the McLaren 570S (a factory car entrusted to Euan Hankey), the Audi R8 LMS (by Baporo, with Manel Cerqueda and Dani Díaz-Varela) and the Porsche 911 Carrera Supercup (by Alméras, driven by Ayhancan Güven and Hugo Chevalier).

Held in perfect weather and track conditions, the test provided valuable data towards the finalization of the BoP to the team of Luis Isasi, the Technical Delegate of GT Sport. The outcome of the test was very positive, as the lap times of the different cars, even in “non-balanced” configuration, remained in the sought bracket of 5 tenths of a second. 
 
Present at the test, Jesús Pareja, CEO of GT Sport, commented: “After the sessions done at the Hungaroring and Monza, this one complements very well the set of data needed to finalize the BoP in the next few weeks. We are very happy with the outcome and the progress. We are anxious to see the GT Cup Open rolling and so seems to be the GT racing community, given the number of contacts we are receiving. The response is being very encouraging!”
