The “kick-off” for the European GT4 Series season will be held at the Misano World Circuit on May 10th and 11th.
The organization is looking forward to plenty of racing excitement during the European GT4 weekends. Over the past years, the Dutch and European GT4 championship saw spectacular competitions between cars like the Aston Martin Vantage, BMW M3, Chevrolet Camaro, Corvette C6, Ginetta G50, Lotus Evora, Porsche 911 and Nissan 370Z. As of 2014, two drivers can be registered per vehicle (PRO/AM or AM/AM). During the two 50-60 minutes endurance races, drivers will relieve each other during a compulsory pit stop. The level of competition and large amount of track time also makes the European GT4 Series a fantastic category for young drivers who are seeking to demonstrate and further develop their skills.
