The summer break is over and the International GT Open will be taking the track again this weekend for its sixth round of the season, at Silverstone. The legendary track, home to British GP, opens the final and decisive part of the season, which includes two other ‘temples of speed’, Barcelona and Monza. British fans have become increasingly fond of the GT Open over the years and they will have the possibility to enjoy even closer and more exciting action this year and to cheer for top-level local heroes.
With five driver pairs (representing three different teams and brands: Lamborghini, MacLaren and Mercedes) covered by only 15 points at the top of the overall standings, the fight for the 2019 title could not be more intense.
The Silverstone round features an exciting race programme, which includes the highly-competitive Euroformula Open, one of the top European single-seater feeding series, the GT Cup Open Europe, the new GT series below GT3 by GT Sport, on its first visit to the United Kingdom, and the iconic Alpine ELF Europa Cup.
