Revamped Euroformula Open and new GT Cup Open Europe complete the GT Sport ticket for 2019
The long winter recess is over and it’s time to be racing again! The International GT Open kicks-off from the nice Provence region, as the Circuit Paul Ricard gets the honour to host the 2019 season-opener. The French weekend is going to be quite special for GT Sport (and for the fans!), not only because the 14th edition of the GT Open starts under the best auspices, but also because it will mark the inaugural round of the GT Cup Open Europe, the new GT ‘junior’ series, and a new beginning for the Euroformula Open, more than ever one of the top F.3-based series in Europe. The Spanish F.4 Championship completes the race programme of this weekend which will see again Michelin, our faithful partner, displaying a number of activities in the paddock, not last the Michelin Gastronomy Experience that gathered great success last year.
Following a great season in 2018, the International GT Open is confirming its growing trend and consolidating its distinct position in the GT3 racing market. 2019 promises to be even more exciting and closely-fought, with larger grids, an even higher level, more diversity of brands, an excellent balance between all classes and a good number of novelties, in terms of cars, teams and drivers. Among those, the trend towards younger professional drivers is reinforced.
