SRO Motorsports Group has confirmed the calendar for the newly renamed GT4 European Series, along with the planned expansion of the GT4 platform throughout Europe.
Previously known as the GT4 European Series Northern Cup, the series will join the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup at all five rounds next season and will also race at Spa-Francorchamps.
Zolder will host the opening round in April, while Brands Hatch returns as round two of the season.
Round three will take place at Misano, which hosted the season opener this year. At the end of July, the GT4 European Series will be part of the Spa Speed Week at Spa-Francorchamps, before heading to the Hungaroring. The season finale will be held at the Nürburgring in September.
Introduced this season, the GT4 European Series will feature a Silver Cup aimed at young drivers as well as a Pro-Am and Am class.
It will be the only pan-European series to feature a Silver Cup, while the regional GT4 series will be open to Pro-Am and Am entrants only. Entries are subject to the approval of the Sporting Committee for the GT4 European Series.
Several new series will be launched in the short-term with a total of seven GT4 championships planned between 2018 and 2019, including Central, Nordic and Eastern European Series.
The GT4 European Southern Cup, meanwhile has been renamed to French GT4 Cup and will continue its alliance with the FFSA.
