ADAC GT Masters will again feature seven rounds across Europe, with the 2019 schedule for the German-based GT3 sprint championship having been released.
For the 12th consecutive year, the season will open at Oschersleben, with return visits to Most, Red Bull Ring, Zandvoort, Nürburtring and the Sachsenring, which will now close out the season after swapping dates with Hockenheim.
The Sept. 28-30 season finale in eastern Germany is the only clashing date with the Blancpain GT Series, which has the final round of its Sprint Cup at Barcelona on the same weekend next year.
Only “minor adjustments” are planned in terms of the championship’s sporting regulations, with the biggest change coming with the launch of the new ADAC GT4 Germany series, which will be on the support bill for six of the seven weekends.
“In 2018, we have witnessed one of the most exciting seasons in the twelve-year history of the ADAC GT Masters,” said ADAC Sports President Hermann Tomczyk.
“The series has taken another step forward this year, reaching competitive heights never seen before.
“We intend to build on that in 2019, so we are sticking with a winning formula in terms of the race calendar and also the regulations.
“We have a promising new addition to the support program in the shape of the new ADAC GT4 Germany series. This will make race weekends an even more attractive and unique experience for fans and contestants alike.”
