Snetterton is set to welcome the UK’s most exotic race series as a grid of supercars compete for the Avon Tyres British GT Championship.

The British GT Championship features over 30 supercars, representing evocative marques including Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Lotus, McLaren, Mercedes and Porsche.

Capable of speeds in excess of 150mph on the Snetterton 300 circuit’s Senna and Bentley Straights, the cars will appear in two one-hour races on the Sunday, both of which feature Le Mans-style pitstops for driver changes.

Among the teams is the ISSY Racing Lotus Evora, with Lotus Motorsport’s Gavan Kershaw the lead driver and support from the Hethel factory.

The event will be co-headlined by the Duo BRDC Formula 4 Championship, the nation’s top single-seater series.

Three F4 races will be contested by the Grand Prix stars of the future while there will also be a strong bill of support races, including saloon car racing from the Volkswagen Racing Cup, and more sportscar action from the Ginetta GT5 Challenge, Porsche Club Championship and the visiting Northern Sports and Saloon Car Championship.
