The Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup returns to Zolder this weekend after a one-year absence from the Belgian circuit, with 33 cars on the provisional entry list.


The field has one new addition since last month’s round at Brands Hatch, with the arrival of Kessel Racing’s Am Cup entry.

Stephen Earle and David Perel will pilot the No. 888 Ferrari 488 GT3 in the Sprint Cup’s first all-Am entry of the season.

The Reiter Young Stars Lamborghini Gallardo R-EX won’t race at Zolder, with Marko Helistekangas and Caitlin Wood switching to an Endurance Cup effort, as revealed by Sportscar365.

While Mirko Bortolotti and Christian Engelhart currently lead the overall Blancpain GT Series standings having won the last four races, Maxi Buhk and Franck Perera still hold onto the Sprint Cup lead.

The Grasser Racing Team drivers are 12 points clear in the overall points classification, but the HTP Motorsport pair is five points clear in Sprint Cup.

Track action gets underway on Friday, followed by the Qualifying Race at 3 p.m. local time Saturday and the Main Race at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
