Brands Hatch owner MSV and championship promoter SRO have extended their deal to host the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup on the Grand Prix circuit through at least 2019.

The first three Sprint Cup events at the Kent circuit have seen grid sizes almost double, with supercar displays and demonstrations also attracting a growing audience to the event.

The return of top-line international GT racing to the venue has also brought racing heroes such as Alex Zanardi and Bernd Schneider to the historic circuit.

“We are delighted to extend this partnership with SRO for a further three years,” said MSV Chief Executive Jonathan Palmer.

“Stéphane Ratel has worked tirelessly to support and promote GT racing across the world, and this year’s Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup grid is absolutely stunning and a tribute to the efforts of Stéphane and his outstanding team, with whom we enjoy a very strong working relationship.”

Ratel added: “When Brands Hatch was included on the Blancpain GT Series calendar in 2014, the meeting proved to be an immediate success.

“The following years only confirmed the fact that the biggest GT series in the world belongs on the legendary Kent racetrack and that is why everybody at the SRO Motorsports Group is pleased and honored to extend our partnership with MSV and Brands Hatch.”
